CineMiracle Into Drive-In 

On Reserved Seat' Basis

Cincinnati - The first drive-in showing of the three-projector-type motion picture production is scheduled for the Twin Drive-In Theatre here July 13. The picture will be "Windjammer," in CineMiracle, the National Theatres & Television. Inc. attraction.

It is believed that it will be the first time that a motion picture will be playing on a road show reserved-seat basis at a drive-in theatre. All parking spaces will be reserved, and the formal opening calls for "black cars with white sidewall tires."

One of NT&T's mobile CineMiracle units will be moved into the theatre area to project the picture.
