Mr. Enyart submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform


RESOLUTION

Expressing support for the designation of the night of June 6, 2013, as “National Drive-in Movie Night” to recognize the 80th anniversary of the drive-in movie theatre.

    Whereas Richard Hollingshead, Jr., developed and patented the design for the drive-in movie theatre still in use worldwide today;

    Whereas Hollingshead was the builder and proprietor of the world’s first drive-in theatre in Camden, New Jersey;

    Whereas Hollingshead has become known as the father of the uniquely United States form of family recreation and entertainment known as the drive-in movie theatre; and

    Whereas June 6, 2013, is the 80th anniversary of the first exhibition of a film at that theatre in 1933 and would be an appropriate date to designate as “National Drive-in Movie Night”; Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) supports the designation of “National Drive-in Movie Night”;

(2) recognizes the historical significance of the 80th anniversary of Richard Hollingshead’s achievement;

(3) recognizes the drive-in movie theatre as a uniquely United States form of family recreation and entertainment; and

(4) calls upon the people of the United States to observe such a night with appropriate ceremonies, programs, and activities.
