Bellingham history talk looks at movie, hamburger drive-ins


BELLINGHAM - Two icons of mid-century American life, one nearly extinct and the other still thriving, will be discussed Thursday, April 10, at a meeting of the Whatcom County Historical Society.

Local history writers Kent Holsather and Wes Gannaway will present "Drive-ins, Drive-ups and Drive-Thrus," a thumbnail look at movie and hamburger drive-ins, from their earliest beginnings to their current status locally and nationally.

Their free talk starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Rotunda Room of Whatcom Museum's Old City Hall building, 121 Prospect St. Their book on the subject is being readied for publication late next year.

Reach DEAN KAHN at or call 715-2291.
