This popup drive-in began in 2020 during the height of the pandemic. It’s goal was to provide a culturally rich arthouse-style cinema while employing persons with disabilities. The screen was shattered by the weather at the end of 2022. Although a permit had been granted for 2023 movies have yet to be shown. The website indicates there will be a Fall 2023 season but nothing is definite and the phone has been disconnected. Part of the problem is that the Imperial Avenue parking lot is used by organizations other than the non-profit Remarkable and scheduling issues have arisen.

When operational, films are projected from the back of a truck. See uploaded photo.

There was one of these type of popup drive-ins in Bridgeview, Illinois. Run by a different business. I’m sure there were others throughout the country that popped up during the Covid pandemic. The one in Bridgeview was a bit bigger scale. They had empty trailers stacked up and a huge screen mounted on the side. This was set up in the Parking lot of the Geek Stadium. The cars there for the show, listened to the latest movies and even live concerts through the car radio. Food trucks lined one side of the parking lot. Of course everybody was required to wear masks whenever out of your car.
At the time, I tried entering on CT this pop up drive-in theater that was in Bridgeview. Had photos and all the info. Even advertisement info in the photo section. But for some strange reason it was all removed from CT. I hope you have better luck than what I had. These kind of shows should be documented.
