Popcorn, anyone? Drive-in movies on the lake

KINGSTON, Tenn. (AP) - Now you can watch a drive-in movie on a lake.

The owner of a Kingston boating store is offering boaters a free monthly movie on the water.

Teddy Haywood, owner of Blue Springs Boat Co., recently set up his second waterborne drive-in of the season on a nameless island in the Tennessee Valley Authority's Watts Bar Lake. According to The Knoxville News Sentinel, it's within sight of the boat launch near the Kingston exit off Interstate 40.

On the last Saturday night of each month through the beginning of autumn, Haywood plans to take the screen he has crafted and set it up on the island shoreline for movies.

He has built a wooden platform he puts in the water on which he places a DVD player connected to a projector.
