Drive-in movies...

Mav's dinner and a movie tonight got me thinking...
Do you have a drive-in theater near you?
I never went to one growing up in NYC, until we moved here and I went to one with friends, I love 'em!!!
The last one I saw was Titanic, The Wedding Singer, and Hard Rain (Christian Slater.... yummy ) all in 1 showing. I love when they have 3 good ones at a time!!!
What's the last one you saw???

Oh it is so long since I went to one! They have mostly been torn down around here. Tough to make a go of it when you can only be open for 2-4 months of the year.

We do have one not far away, but we have not been since we had kids. I think the last thing I saw was Planet of the Apes. We really enjoyed going there and I look forward to taking the kids some day. Hopefully it will still be around by that time.

Not that I am aware of. I love drive-in movies and would really appreciate having one near by. We actually talked about doing this as a gal's night out!

drive in movies used to be a cheap treat for family out night. kids could talk a bit and fidget all they needed to. i miss them too.

have no clue what last movie i saw was but it was over twenty years ago.

I think my kids are ready to go to their first, but I work weekends so I'd have to take the next morning off for it... but I bet they would think it was the best thing they ever did!!
Finding kid-friendly movies at the drive-in seems more difficult also.

No clue here either.... too long ago and drive in movies for me was either a night out with the guys drinking in high school or a night out with the girlfriend (fill in the blank) same era.
I think the last one around here closed ten years ago.
