WATERFORD, Pa. — The big screen has gone dark for the season at Sunset Drive-in in Waterford Township. The last of the vendors at the weekly flea market staged at the theater have folded up their card tables and packed away their wares. Drive-in theaters, down from a high of about 4,000 in the late 1950s to an estimated 321 today, according to www.DriveInMovie.com, have long been described as a dying breed. But 2020 presented challenges on a different scale.
