The announcement of the Blaze leaving Bakersfield is impacting more than just baseball -- it's affecting drive-in movies, too.

Cinertain Drive-In announced on its Facebook page this morning that in light of the news, drive-in events at Sam Lynn Ballpark will be going on a hiatus.

The group still plans to host events at the Fox Theater in downtown Bakersfield.
