    Didn't Know What Stereo Was

    You only got that one speaker to stick in the car, so everything was in glorious mono -- as were a lot of the movies anyway.

    Almost The End Of Another Season

    There is a drive-in, but it is not that close to my town. Now that the kids are getting old enough to go, but not so old that they won't be seen with their old man, I think maybe I should take them over to see whatever is playing before the season ends. I wonder if they still...

    The One If Fort Collins, Colorado Specifically

    I went to it many time by myself. It's so cool to go to the movies and sit in the truck or on the tail gate in the back and watch a movie. There's nothing like it.

    Sneaking In

    I remember my mom use to take us and her telling me to get in the back and hide. Lol back then it was so easy to sneak in and plus we were broke and needed popcorn so that meant someone needed to hide. Lol looking back I wouldn't trade those days for nothing.

    Drive Ins!

    I am in NJ, and somewhat nearby is the last existing drive in movie. Should you want to go to this theater it's near Vineland (NJ) & is named The Delsea! Drive Ins are a fine idea for an evening out with the family!

    Would Love To See An Evil Dead Marathon

    I would really enjoy going out to the drive-in to see five hours of Evil Dead movies back to back.  Fun movies with the great Bruce Campbell and all that stop motion animated skeleton action.  I can not imagine a weekend evening better spent.

    The Flintstones And Jerasic Park

    These were the last movies I saw in a drive-in theater. I was about 13 and it was a double feature. The driven was in around Saskatoon and I think it might still be there. I am not quite to sure since I have not been there for a while.
