Behold The Drive-In Movie Experience!

One of the greatest ways to see a movie is in the privacy of your own car! It’s a uniquely American pastime, and I hope it never goes away!

I wanted to share a website that celebrates the drive-in movie culture…by hosting a weekend of drive-in horror!

This looks like such a fun night….as a kid, my friends and I would grab submarine sandwiches and six packs of beer, then head to a drive-in to see horror and/or exploitation double bills like these:

You can keep up on all of these great events by reading the classic website, “DVD Drive-In”…check it out here:

“Going Attractions” Documentary!

This 2013 documentary tells the definitive story of the drive-in theater…here is how they describe the film:

“Once a vibrant part of American culture, drive-ins reached their peak in the late 50s with almost 5,000 dotting the nation. Although drive-ins are experiencing a resurgence, today less than 400 remain. In a nation that loves cars and movies, why haven’t they survived?”

This movie is offered for sale on Amazon, and I got myself a copy – it’s a terrific “love letter” to a classic way to see movies – in a car!
