Might just be the backer for the screen which should wrap over that. They make advertising wraps to cover skyscrapers, they can make a white wrap the size of a screen. Wonder if they got caught out in a construction delay and had to open before everything was done?

What you're saying makes sense. I know ad billboards use a continuous wrap nowadays, too, so you would think the drive-in could do something like that. I think they were probably in a hurry to get open and get some summer business because there were still bulldozers around the property when I drove in.

A few from my recent holiday in the far North of Scotland:

Half way up the Cairngrm Mountain Railway the two cars pass - on a single track line...


Dusk over the river at Conon Bridge (a few miles North of Inverness)


Alpaca meet sheep...


Built and decorated by Italian prisoners of war during World War 2 the "Italian Chapel" is a little gem on Orkney

Part of the ceiling


There are ruined churches, castles and "stately homes" all over Orkney - just some interesting stone work in one of them


Playing with the light from the East window of St.Magnus Cathedral in Kirkwall


Some of the older stained glass in St.Magnus cathedral - this older glass appears to have lost a bit of depth to its colour over the years possibly due to the way the whole town gets battered by storms in the winter.


The modern East window in St Magnus - note the depth of colour here


The play of light from a stained glass window on ancient stone work - this part of the building was completed in about 1180, but the glass is "quite new", only dating back to the 1700s


Back to the mainland of Scotland, looking across from Thurso to one of the lighthouses at the entrance to Scrabster harbour.

Settlement..a temporary art installation on The Barrows, Heysham village...

Stunning sky colour. Did you use any filters or was that taken as is?

Some modern digital cameras have "digital filters" in the software that can produce that sort of effect.
Fabulously effective - the figures look almost transparent, but I guess they are actually highly reflective?

Mirror reflective I'd say. Like a window into the soul.

Poor design, poor construction, or both.

Windblown?
At least it is a reasonably sized tree - on the Orkney Islands "large" trees are barely ten feet tall, and, even in sheltered locations stand at a distinctly jaunty angle.

I have no idea. If it helps someone identify it, the location where the photo was taken is Mar Vermelho, Alagoas, Brazil. The climate there is what we call Agreste, that is like a transition zone between the tropical forest-y coast and the arid interior.

I don´t know if it´s windblown, it sure looks like it. As far as I could find the average wind speed in the area is between 6 and 7m/s though I have no clue if that is enough to do that to a tree or not.
