Additionally, UOE has partnered with Austin's Blue Starlite Drive-In by providing the theater with a mobile LED screen to offer extended, daytime hours.

“We were looking forward to releasing a full summer program of drive-in movies this year, but now, UOE is more focused on the current issues at hand – helping communities find safe entertainment alternatives while helping our employees get work. We aim to continue supporting our office staff and dozens of audiovisual technicians across the country by providing a useful community activity during this crisis,” said Landers.
