If you’re looking for a Throwback Thursday that will really put you back in the past, try Empire Drive-In. It’s a full-scale drive-in theatre made out of old and wrecked cars rescued from the junkyard and a 40-foot screen built from salvaged wood.

Like the days of old, people can hop on the wrecked cars and enjoy films projected on the screen. Each car has a low-power radio that transmits the film’s audio. Brooklyn-based artists Jeff Stark and Todd Chandler started this project to start a conversation about car culture, planned obsolescence, and the distinction between public and private spaces.

And no, it doesn’t come in 3D.
