    I've hit at least 3, over the years, when I perceived that they used to have dirt parking lots, or play or turf/dirt areas next to the screen/snack-stand area. In each case, got coins of varying degrees. But of course, drive-ins only date the 1940s or '50s at the earliest, so ..... I don't recall getting many old coins (but did get a few wheaties, etc....). Real junky.

    As for permission, the ones I hit were abandoned (go figure, the era of "drive-in movies" ended in the 1970s, so none are open anymore), so there was no one to ask permission from, since they are just open lots now.

    There used to be an old drive in, in my town. Years ago they tore it down and put in a shopping center. I wish i would have been into detecting when it was still standing. If i were you id probably try to find the owner, youll never know whats there till you get permission. All they could say is no, but it wouldnt hurt to ask.

    I only ever found one that was productive and as the patent for this type of cinema was only granted to Richard Hollingshead in 1932 the chance of earlier finds in down to sheer luck.

    There was a few listing sites so you can check an area out such as Drive-Ins.Com. It tells you the car capacity, if/when closed etc.
