This is my third country in four decades. But everywhere I go, I feel like someone is snatching the character of the place away before I have a chance to explore it. To be fair, I didn’t frequent Valley 6 Drive-In Theaters in Auburn while it was open. Even in its prime, the drive-in was a dusty place with a questionable restroom. We only saw one movie at Valley 6 on one warm summer night – Pirates of the Caribbean. But as a photographer, I was drawn to the rusty, funky, retro character on the theaters. Now I wish I had visited more often with and without the camera. According to the Auburn Reporter, the place is closing, most likely to give way to another suburban housing tract.
