If you miss drive-in movies or want to experience them for the first time this summer is your chance.

The Elko Speedway in Elko New Market plans to open the Champions Drive-in Theater this June.

Some of the movie equipment comes from the old Cottage View drive-in in Cottage Grove.

You’ll recall that closed for good in September 2012.

The Elko Speedway owners bought the giant movie screen from the Cottage View.

More than 700 vehicles should fit at the new drive-in.
