LUVERNE - A feature on Luverne’s Verne Drive-In will be part of an upcoming episode of Pioneer Public Television’s “Postcards” program to be aired at 7 p.m. Feb 2.
The 30-minute episode will be repeated at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 3; and 7 p.m. Feb. 6. The program will also be available for online viewing after Feb. 3 at www.pioneer.org .
The original owner and founder of the Luverne theater, Walter Deutsch, is interviewed about the unorthodox promotion strategies he used to get people to come to the theater in the early days, which included placing canoe based signage on top of his family car to promote the movie “Deliverance.”
Current owner Glenn Burmeister talks about how he remodeled and invested in the theater where Deutsch left off; constructing new buildings, concession stands and a sound system. Today, the Verne is one of the few drive-in theaters left in the state.
