Make the Empire Drive-in a historic property

Empire Theatres (Sobeys) plans to sell the drive in on the Truro Road as real estate. This leaves them or the new owners free to bulldoze what is left of a one of Pictou County's most historic landmarks. Built in 52' it has survived a fire that burned down the main screen in 1969 as well as many other hardships that could have surely closed it. This petition is to solidify the drive-in as a treasure of Pictou County and maintain its appearance and hopefully operation as a drive-in.
