Our Favorite Drive-In Audio Installations

By | Drive-in Audio | No Comments

With summer just a few short weeks away, interest in our drive-in audio solution is picking up! To celebrate this glorious time of year and the activities that make it so special, we thought we’d share a few of our favorite customers using AudioFetch as their radio app for drive-ins.

Penn Cinema

Throughout the year, Penn Cinema offers a top-notch movie experience indoors, and in the warmer months, their “Summer Under the Stars” series brings that experience outdoors. Penn Cinema has two locations in Lititz and Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, and screens a mix of family favorites, cult classics, and modern blockbusters.

Blue Starlite Drive-In

Conde Nast said Blue Starlite Drive-In is “one of the coolest outdoor movie theaters in the world,” and we agree! Opened a decade ago, Blue Starlite remains the only mini urban boutique drive-in movie theater in the world. They only allow 15-40 cars at each of their locations (two in Austin, Texas, one in Round Rock, Texas, and one in Minturn, Colorado), ensuring all guests can enjoy an intimate, personal, and one-of-a-kind drive-in experience.

Holiday Twin Drive-In

The Holiday Twin Drive-In Theatre is a two-screen theater in Fort Collins, Colorado built in the late 1960s. Today, Holiday Twin runs two features on each screen seven days a week. Audiences not only enjoy the movies playing each evening, but they can also take in a gorgeous sunset and views of the Rocky Mountains.

Vanderwende Farm Creamery

This family-owned farm in Bridgeville, Delaware began hosting drive-ins last summer as an innovative way to engage their community and generate new business. Vanderwende used AudioFetch’s audio over WiFi solutions for their drive-in events, creating a fun and responsible activity for their community and another event to sell their ice cream and homemade goodies.

If you’re interested in hosting a drive-in movie theater, we can help with your audio. Whether you’re hosting in an established drive-in theater, a parking lot beside your building, or even a beach, our AudioFetch wireless audio streaming products are a simple and affordable solution. Contact us today!

The temperature is rising. Flowerings are blooming. Animals are getting more active. Nature is starting to come out of winter hibernation, and soon people will be emerging, too!

Drive-in events are ideal solutions for businesses and organizations of all types to bring communities together and generate additional revenue, while maintaining safe social distances.

How Your Business Can Host Drive-In Events

We worked with hundreds of businesses and organizations in 2020 to host “drive-in” style events, helping them continue bringing their community together while maintaining a safe physical distance. These drive-in audio events let their members and customers maintain a sense of community and connection, without risking the health of themselves and their families.

How to Host a Drive-in Graduation Ceremony

Schools that wanted to raise the bar and create a ceremony worthy of the grads, while still maintaining a safe physical environment, opted to host “drive-in” style graduation ceremonies last year. For these drive-in graduations, the students and families parked in the school parking lot and remained in their cars while listening to the commencement speeches and grad names being announced via their smartphones or radios. With social distancing requirements still in place at schools around the world, this is still a great option for 2021 grads.

AudioFetch Blog Header - Football Season 2020

Celebrating the Start of Football Season

By | Sports Bars, Drive-in Audio, Restaurants, Stadiums | No Comments

The start of football season is always an exciting time of year. Not only does it mean action-packed viewing parties with loved ones, it also signifies the start of Fall and all the warm and cozy foods, clothing and environments we can look forward to. 

While fans may not be able to pack into most stadiums to watch the action this year, they can still enjoy the camaraderie (and competition!) with friends and family at sports bars and outdoor tailgating events. 

Our AudioFetch wireless audio streaming solutions are a great way to help fans hear the game while maintaining safe social distances in sports bars, restaurants, or even stadium parking lots!

Local Audio Over WiFi Solutions for Sports Bars & Restaurants 

Our AudioFetch local wireless audio streaming technology allows you to broadcast the game audio from muted TVs to your customers’ smartphones and tablets. Customers can hear the game from anywhere in the bar or patio by using the free AudioFetch app. This allows you to keep tables spaced farther apart and discourages gathering around a single TV. 

If you have multiple TVs airing different games or other programs on each, that’s no problem. AudioFetch can accommodate 16 audio inputs with a single unit, or up to 512 by using additional units! This allows you to attract more customers by offering several viewing options for fans (or something for those not-so-fans, who still want to go out with their friends!). 

Drive-In Audio Solution for Tailgating Parties

Stadiums may be sitting empty during live games, but the parking lots don’t have to be. Hosting tailgating viewing parties in stadium parking lots provides a safe viewing option for eager fans, and could help to recover some of the losses from in-stadium ticket sales. 

A big outdoor screen, our audio over WiFi streaming technology, and solid wireless internet is all you need to create this drive-in viewing experience. Fans can remain in their cars or truck beds, and listen to the game audio through their smartphone or tablet, or connected bluetooth speaker. 

To celebrate the start of football this year, and help businesses and organizations serve their guests in a more responsible way, we’re offering 35% off all AudioFetch sports bar and tailgating applications!* 

Use the discount code FOOTBALL2020 to purchase our portable FetchExpress online, or contact us to order AudioFetch Signature or any of our other sports bar audio solutions.

*35% off MSRP. Discount available from September 7, 2020 through September 30, 2020. Cannot be combined with other offers or discounts. One discount per customer.

Drive-Ins: Not Just for Movies Anymore

By | Drive-in Audio | No Comments

Drive-ins are the hot trend this summer thanks to COVID-19 and the need for social distancing restrictions. And while the drive-in concept is certainly nothing new, we’re seeing people and organizations get creative with their use of wireless audio streaming technology to provide safer entertainment options, bring communities together and support national and local talent. 

Following are five creative uses of the drive-in concept for non-film entertainment:

Drive-in Comedy Shows

While gathering indoors in large groups may be forbidden, there are no restrictions on laughter. Let’s face it, we could also use some chuckles right now (even if only to cover up the tears!). 

So we’re encouraged to see comedians and comedy organizations pushing on with drive-in comedy shows. North Miami Beach transformed their parking lot into a comedy club last weekend for “The Big Screen Comedy Drive-In Show,” featuring local hilarious acts such as El Caballo, Cisco Duran and Gene Harding.

More well-known comedians are getting in on the drive-in trend, too. The ever-outrageous and -uproarious Burt Kreischer held six drive-in comedy shows earlier this summer, which were so successful, he’s preparing to launch a second leg of the tour. And when we say successful, we mean successful. Those six shows alone grossed more than $400K with nearly 8,000 in attendance! 

Drive-in Drag Shows

After a no-doubt rough week of working from home, you can now see your favorite drag queens werking from a parking lot!

RuPaul’s Drag Race is hosting “Drive-N-Drag” shows in parking lots across the US. The opening show of the tour was held at the Garden State Plaza in Paramus, New Jersey in mid-July. Other Drive-In Drag shows will be held in LA, Chicago, Seattle and DC/Baltimore. 

Drive-In Sports Viewing

Sports teams haven’t taken to the drive-in concept as quickly as other industries, but a few industrious teams are finally getting on board. Like the Chicago Blackhawks hockey team. Fans can drive-in viewing parties in the team’s Schaumburg Boomers Stadium parking lot. 

We hope to see more sports teams following suit with drive-in audio events in the coming weeks. (We’re looking at you Nittany Lions! Sincerely, the PSU alums at AudioFetch!). 

Drive-In Music Festivals 

After every music tour and festival was cancelled earlier this year, we were ready to sit this summer out. Because we all know you can’t have summer without music festivals! Thankfully, some inventive and resilient folks are carrying the tune with drive-in music festivals. 

These festivals are playing out big and small across the globe, catering to just about every music genre and taste you can imagine.

On the big scale, there’s the hip hop and R&B focused “Drive-In Fest” at Soldier Field featuring Lloyd, Do or Die and Bobby V. 

On the small scale, there are countless drive-in music festivals and concerts happening at local venues around the world. Check your local events calendars or search for something like “drive-in music near me” to find great options like these in Michigan, Sacramento or Denver.

For a little bit of the big and the small, there’s Garth Brooks, whose concert was streamed to 300+ drive-in theaters in small towns across the US. 

Drive-In Discos

It should probably come as no surprise that Germany pioneered the concept of the Drive-In Disco. The first large events were hosted by Club Index, a family-run nightclub in the small German town Schüttorf, throughout May. Since then, Drive-In Discos, Drive-In Dance Parties, and Drive-In Raves have been popping up in the parking lots of nightclubs and stadiums around the globe.

We’ve been heartened and excited by all of the new drive-in movie concepts we’ve seen over the past few months.

We love seeing local businesses get innovative with how they’re engaging their communities and trying to generate business during these unpredictable times. Vanderwende Farm Creamery is one such innovative business. A family-owned farm in Bridgeville, Delaware, Vanderwende began hosting drive-ins using AudioFetch’s audio over WiFi solutions to create a fun and responsible event for their community, and another excuse for everyone to enjoy more ice cream. (Although I think we can all agree, we don’t need an excuse!)

If you’re interested in hosting a drive-in movie theater, we can help with your audio. Whether you’re hosting in an established drive-in theater, a parking lot beside your building, or even a beach, our AudioFetch wireless audio streaming products are a simple and affordable solution.
