Great old signage. One by one the drive-ins seem to be disappearing.

One of my enduring childhood memories is going to a drive-in in Minnesota as an 11-year old on my first trip abroad on my own (visiting relatives). A great way to watch a film, if you have the weather for it...

It's a damn shame I tell yea! Some of the best times of my life were at the drive-inn. I miss that place as if they tore down the house I grew up in! These new theaters just don't do it for me. I mean same old movies with better effects that's all it is. The first movie I ever saw there was the original Alien scarred the bejezus out the the whole crowd awesome stuff blew us away!! The last movie I saw there was Terminator 2. I'll never forget those days!! That was Salem to me back in the day. Good old Taco Jon's burrito, cruise n the gutt then hitten the drive-inn. Remember folks it's more about the experience's in life and not just another movie.. Gonna miss you old buddy.. R.I.P. And may you haunt the new theater ah hahhaahah!!!
