The drive-in theater is making a comeback. There were once dozens of drive-in in Southern California, but today there's only one in all of L.A. and Orange counties.

But soon there may be two. This April, Glenn Bianchi plans to re-open the Paramount Drive-in. It's the theater that his father opened in 1947 in Paramount, California, originally called the Roadium Drive-in. Bianchi joins Take Two to talk more about his plans.
