Yes I have and I've thoroughly loved it. My favourite one was a drive in movie theatre in America in New England, where we watched a double bill in just beautiful early Autumn weather . The drive in theatre was a real retro one, and looked like it came straight from the set of Grease! The snack bar had some great American candy on offer, and the whole experience was lots of fun. In Australia, we've been a handful of times, but have found it trickier with little kids. It's definitely something I'll do with the kids when they are a bit older.
Yes, we always went to drive-in-movies when I was younger.
They are a lot of fun, and very much a culture of the 1950's and 60's.
A lot of kissing in those days went on in the cars, and it was a night out mainly for young teenagers.
My daughter-in-law only ever go's to them, she hates going to the movies any other way.
I don't mind them, and it is a different experience, that's for sure...I hope they stay around, it would be really sad to see them just disappear for good.
I don't know quite what it is? but they have an appeal, a theam that is so different.
If you haven't been to one, give it a try!
Not for the longest time. When I was a kid we used to go to one. I discovered about a year ago that it had finally closed down, after thinking it would be nice to go. It was always a fun outing, somehow more fun than just going to the movies ... if I could find one that wasn't too far away, I would go again for sure.
At the risk of showing my age, I have to say a big YES.
We used to go all the time when I was dating, and that was before the days of the mosquito here in the West.
They have started Under the Stars movies in several places, but this is not the same as taking your car in. It was such fun going and buying junk food and eating in the car while watching the movie.
It was really such a good idea in hot climates, though guess it must have not paid in the end due to the advent of TV?
When I was a child, every Friday night when Dad got home from work, Mum, Dad & I, bundled into the car & off to the closest 'Drive-In' Theatre!
Mum had me in PJ's, dressing gown, & slippers. I used to go to the Playground, there'd be many children there, we'd all play on the swings, play 'tiggy', ride on the little train.
Life was good in the '50's &'60's! I was allowed to buy my Dinner from the kiosk, & an ice-cream! Wasn't much on 'offer' those days, but I usually had 'Fish & Chips' & Chocolate Malted Milk! Most of the time though, Mum packed food for me, so I happily sat in car back seat & ate that!
One film I remember actually watching was 'Island in the Sun'. I was fascinated seeing a 'black' man (Harry Belafonte) as one didn't see any 'black' people in those days!
Can you imagine doing that now, with concerns about 'creepy' men getting around near kids'? Not likely!
YES, while I was a teenager. My now husband used to take me to the double movie, at our local Drive-in. I still have the ticket butts in my exercise book diary for that year. I pinned them to the page with paper clips, which have now rusted! Before I started going to the drive-in, He'd go with his 2 brothers or his mates, & 1 of them would hide in the boot, to get in for free, but the man on the gate soon became a wakeup to that, after a while! After the drive-in disappeared, the space became a Saturday market place, followed by warehouses.
