Do you Drive-In??

I know I have been to a drive-in once in my life...a very long time ago...I was a little girl. I don't remember when. I don't remember where. I don't remember what movies. But I do remember sitting in the backseat in my pajamas eating popcorn with my mom, dad and sister. It was a llllooooonnnngg time ago! But it was FUN!

Well last Friday we were trying to come up with something fun and exciting to do, but different and cheap! And this is what we found...
The Drive-In Movies!!
The boys were so excited, as they have never been to a drive-in before!
We looked up drive-ins to see what we could find and how about that...there is one about 35 minutes from where we live with 9 screens and ALL double features! So we picked the movies that we wanted to see...Shrek The Final Chapter and How to Train Your Dragon, put on our PJs, packed a cooler & snacks and headed out!
Since it's summer, the movies are starting just a tad late...first movie started at 8:15pm and 2nd movie started at 10:15pm. But the boys were very excited about this...bedtime after midnight!

Snapping pictures before the double feature begins!
And it was pretty cheap too...$6.50 per adult & $1 per kid...
4 people~2 Movies~$15!

We left the tailgate open and that is where the boys laid with their pillows and blankets to watch the movies while Ryan and I sat in front of them in our chairs.

What a super fun night...I can say that this will not be the only time to the drive in! Tuesday is discount day...family of 4~$11...can't beat that!

So Do You Drive-In??

Cuz We Do!!

I used to drive in when I was in high school. Didn't remember much of the movies though. ;o)

Looks like you had lots of fun. I'll have to look that up around here to see if we still have some close by.

I remember going when I was a kid. We saw Back To The Future. There aren't any close but there is one somewhere in my state, the only one I think but I can't remember where?? Anyways, sounds like fun and something that I would like to experience with my kids and looks like yall had a great time.

How fun! We have one about an hour from here but we have never been. Everytime we drive that way we always say, we need to go there sometime, ha but never do!

Oh the great memories I have of going to the drive in. That is a great way to spend family time. Back when I was going we called them the passion pit...LOL... only a teenager would come up with that name! Looks like the boys loved it!

Carrie said...

OH my goodness...I didn't even think they still had those! We used to have one from our hometown, but it got torn down long ago :( We used to be able to see the screen from a hill! That is great! It looked like tons of fun! I'm not sure if there's one near us...but now I want to find out!

Alicia said...

Oh my gosh, we love the drive in!!!! But, my husband does not care for it at all!! LOL

We have a drive in nearby (Just down the street from us in fact) but sadly the prices are not so good. The kids went last summer with their grandparents, but I have not been for years. Maybe this summmer...
