Money keeps Captain America out of 2 NE Ohio drive-ins

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Captain America opens nationwide Friday. But the superheroes will not be featured at two drive-in movie theaters. The theaters said Disney is asking for an additional percentage of sales to show the film.

The Mayfield Drive-in in Chardon and the Aut-O-Rama in North Ridgeville both said money was keeping the block-buster franchise from their screens.

"The terms of the contract and playtime and other demands Disney was asking for, was not acceptable without raising the price of admission," Facebook post said. 

The Chardon theater said, "hopefully in the near future these terms will change and the drive-in will have a chance to play Captain America."

"The terms quoted are outrageous, and we must do our best to remain a viable entertainment revenue," according to Aut-o-Rama Facebook post.

The Aut-O-Rama said the soonest the theater might show the film is June 10.
