Drive-In Theaters Are Providing Temporary Benefits To Developers And Mall Owners

It’s summer, and the entertainment-loving public has few options. Stay-at-home orders have led to a myriad of closures and cancellations, and reopening phases in some states have been halted or reversed in recent days, as coronavirus cases continue to climb.

Enter the drive-in theater, an unexpected winner in the pandemic fallout. Often overlooked in the era of massive chains like AMC and Regal Cinemas, drive-in theaters are experiencing a boom in popularity as people seek safe ways to have fun outside of their own homes.

Some drivers will rip a U-turn, pull over in the middle of a busy road and switch on Instagram Live to capture an accident scene, a sudden tornado or rogue wildlife. Beth Azor does it when she spots an incredible leasing opportunity.

During one such dispatch, she was excited because she had just gone into a tennis store and discovered it was a chain with eight locations.

A CRE leasing agent, leasing coach and investor, Azor rose in the ranks at Terranova Corp., eventually becoming president, then founded her own consulting company, Azor Advisory Services, in 2004. She also owns six shopping plazas worth $79M in the suburbs west of Fort Lauderdale, which she leases and manages herself.

She has become known as “The Canvassing Queen” because of her willingness to knock on doors to know her market and find new opportunities.
