My question for today: What memories do you have about Drive-in theaters and how do you feel about their demise?
I really miss drive-ins. Those who were born into this digital age have absolutely no idea what fun they missed back in the day! I would LOVE to go to a drive-in again (probably just to relive some memories) but now, the drive ins that are left, have all turned into flea markets!
My first memories of the drive-in theater are when I was little and the drive-in theater was the ONLY place momma and daddy would take us to see a movie at! LOL! They thought a car-full of kids were much easier to handle in a car than auditorium, I guess. I suppose us kids liked it because we did not have to sit still and quiet all night in a car. We could do anything we wanted! And if we chose to go to sleep, we could. 🙂
Then came the teen years and date nights at the Drive-in… ‘Nuff said. Not to go too far into the activities of two teens in a darkened car – let’s remember other ways teen-age kids had fun at the drive-in. 😉
We could meet friends, switch cars, run around the dark parking lot, sneak stuff in (including other kids) and other mischievous activities. Hey! What can I say? We were kids out to have some fun and a good time! We could STILL do most anything we wanted! 🙂
Come to think of it; it seems I probably had more fun at the drive-in than if I had watched the movie! LOL! 🙂
Yes. I am very sad to see Drive-ins go the way of the dinosaurs. It seems that kids now-a-days don’t have a lot of fun things to do to sow their wild oats with, in a harmless way, as their parent’s generation did. I mean, there isn’t even any dragging main anymore! Now that was a REALLY fun tradition that’s lacking in today’s world. Dragging Main and going to the Drive-in go hand-in-hand IMHO 🙂
What do you miss about “the good old days”?
Why can’t I add any pictures to my posts? I’ve tried!
