                               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.
