Drive in Theater

We went to the "American drive in" last night and watched "Land of the Lost"
There is just something magical about going to the drive in, and there are so few of them left in existence anymore.

There used to be three drive In's around this area and for awhile they where all shut down, until an enterprising local lady bought the Powell theater and renovated it. It only cost's $10 for a car load and she serves hot dogs, hamburgers & nachos from the vintage refreshment stand.

Willie and I had our first date at the Cody drive in. It was the early 80's and we saw "Flash Dance"

If you get a chance, go to a drive in. There is nothing like sitting under the stars watching a movie in the big screen, munching on popcorn and hot dogs.

How fun! I miss going to the drive-in. Brittany went to her first movie at the one in Redding, California. She was about a month old and slept in her little carrier the whole time. That drive-in is gone now too, like almost all of them. I'm so glad the one in Powell is still there!

Oh, I agree. I love a drive-in movie. I think the first movie I saw a the drive-in was Smokey and the Bandit.

I love drive inns. My husband isn't to crazy about them. I grew up with drive inns. My mom used to take us all the time.

That brought back memories of the family going to the drive-in in the old Volare stationwagon, then in high school going with my "friends" to see the new slasher film, I think it was friday the 13th ot a nightmare on elm street..:-)
