Blue Starlite Miami Urban Drive-In Opening: Inside Wynwood's New Vintage Movie Theater

Rainstorms threatened Miami all day yesterday, but somebody up there must really love vintage movies in a retro, open-air setting. Blue Starlite Miami Urban Drive-In launched its soft opening week last night with Pretty in Pink and damn near perfect weather.

The lot was already nearing capacity at around 8 p.m. last night, half an hour in advance of the film's advertised start time. Couples parked in convertibles, a family with kids set up folding chairs in the flatbed of their pickup truck, and a few stragglers snagged spots on the lawn in front of the screen, using blankets or the two small tables provided by Blue Starlite.
