The Dilapidated Drive-in is used to present the boys' Christmas short. Upon its debut, it was seen to be run down and nearly destroyed. In order to fully utilize it for the boys' Christmas short, Mr. Hankey and his family had to use their abilities to restore the drive-in and make it festive.
They commence the restoration by first drawing a smile upon the face of a homeless person, with feces. By the time the boys' film is ready to be shown, Hankey and his family have completed cleaning up the drive-in and restoring the film equipment.
