If all goes well, the Globe Drive-In will be back in business tomorrow.

Pictures of the severely damaged projection screen made the rounds on social media following Hurricane Elsa but yesterday, workers had already repaired most of it.

Managing director Scheval Ali said the problem was actually greater than the screen as they also suffered extensive damage to the fencing and were without power for a while.

“On the exit side and entrance sides much of the paling was down and about two thirds of the screen was blown down. We also have a power supply problem. The way it works is our electricity operates on three phases in order to power the screen and 220 volt equipment. Right now power is back to a degree but we have only two phases so we’re begging Barbados Light & Power to restore us to full capacity,” he said. (CA)
