Roger Babcock is projectionist, maintenence man, movie negotiator, and mustache of the
Hi-Way Drive-In Theater. He and his wife, Sharon, purchased the drive-in in 1976 after having worked there for several years prior. Today, they humbly say that the Hi-Way has been their second home for literally over half of their lives.
On summer nights, if you look up toward the projection booth, you can see Roger standing on the roof of the snack bar looking out into the night. He’s monitoring the projections on the four screens, and smiling at the sound of the childrens’ giggles from the animated movies he plays on screen 2. He says it’s the most magical thing to hear from his booth.
