It's official: with the recent approval (finally!) by Frederick County of the developers' plans, construction will soon be under way at this site, which operated as the 337-car Monocacy Drive-In from 1952-84, and will soon be the home of Bumpers, Maryland's first new permanent drive-in theatre since 1968. Photos and progress updates will be posted at the theatre's website (see link above)
