I'm suprised how many of you still have drive-ins nearby. The only one I ever went to was the Shirley Drive in Shirley Long Island. It has been closed for almost 20 years. I can't remember the last movie I saw. It might have been GhostBusters 2.
One time I went with my cousins to see Jaws 3-D. Apparently 3-D movies do not work at drive-ins. During the showing preceding ours, someone got upset by this. So they threw a large rock through the screen. When we paid to get in, the ticket booth warned us that 3-D does not work in a drive in and that there was a large hole in the screen.
Back in the 70s, the disney summer film festival double features would play at the Shirley every day in the summer. They had a movie marquee billboard out on the Sunrise Highway to advertise what was playing. One week they had Lady and the Tramp with Mary Poppins. Some local teenagers climbed up the sign and changed the letters to read:
"Now Playing; Mary Poppins, the Tramp"
The last drive-in I went to was the North Star Drive in, located in Thornton, CO. The movies were Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade, & Parenthood. My girlfriend and I at the time loved Indy, but for some reason I don't remember Parenthood all that well.
Grease and Bronco Billy double feature.
My memory is hazy but I believed it was a double feature of The Terminator and The Concrete Jungle (with the Captain's woman from Star Trek's Mirror, Mirror Barbara Luna, can't remember if she took it off). I saw it with a group of friends.
My paper runs ads for a couple drive in that are still running but they are at least a 45 minute drive for me so even though I'd like to give a drive in a shot again that's too long a haul.
