RIP, Bob Groves: The Starlite was your life

“The owner of the Durham Starlite Drive-In, Bob Groves, died Friday, March 9, 2007.”:http://www.starlitedurham.com/nowshow.html

This is very sad. I had been thinking of going to the Starlite soon, with the nice weather. Bob worked at drive-in theaters from the time he was 13 years old, living in Cumberland, MD. He’d been running the Starlite since at least the 70’s, I believe. With Bob’s passing, I imagine the future of the Starlite is uncertain. For the sake of Durham and Bob’s memory, I hope it passes to new owners who continue to operate it as a drive-in.

I am very, very sad.
