Sacramento Drive-In Theater Screen Featuring "Fifty Shades of Grey" Visible From Highway, Nearby Go-Kart Track

Opening weekend for the film "Fifty Shades of Grey" included some unwilling viewers.

The movie is being shown at the West Wind Drive-In theater in Sacramento, right off Highway 50. Motorists say they could clearly see the R-rated movie as they drove past.

Even worse, the theater is right next to a go-kart track, which was filled with families over the President's Day weekend.

"I just don't think it should be on a big screen out in the middle of the public, where anybody could turn around and see it," Susan Weiss told KCRA-TV on Monday.

[BAY] "50 Shades of Grey" Sparks Protest in Oakland
A steady stream of people watched 50 Shades of Grey Friday night in Oakland, but were surprised to be greeted by protesters who feel that the movie's sexy message is a message of hate toward women. Cheryl Hurd reports. (Published Saturday, Feb. 14, 2015)

The manager of the theater says he has moved things around so the movie is not visible from the freeway or the track.

By Monday night, KCRA reports, Jennifer Lopez's "The Boy Next Door" and "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water” could be seen from a distance, but “Fifty Shades” was tucked away from plain sight.
