Remember drive-in movie theaters? Because of the coronavirus, the fabulous summer music festival where I live had to cancel its concerts this year, but it will be hosting drive-in movies in their large parking lot a couple of times a week. I thought this was an ingenious way to recoup some of the revenue they will be losing. Plus, as we sit in our cars with our homemade popcorn, our radios tuned in to an FM station providing the sound, it is physical distancing at its best.
Did you ever go to the drive-in back in the day? As a little girl I watched The Ghost and Mr. Chicken starring Don Knotts from the backseat of my parent’s Mercury Comet. What movies did you see? Share with us your favorite drive-in movie experience.
