Originally a parking lot pop-up, owner/founder/visionary Josh Frank’s 24 frames per second dream child has since evolved to an honest to goodness drive-in, complete with Fifties-era speaker poles, a candy and popcorn filled refreshment stand, and one heck of a nifty view of the dusky Austin skyline. Frank’s mission has been so successful that satellite asphalt theatres in Miami and Denver have since opened. But we like our hometown haunt the most, where family fare, classics, and arthouse programming make Blue Starlite a must almost every night of the week.
