Friday night old hangouts: The Drive In

Richfield, Utah

Who remembers the drive in! I do, I do! Lol. By the time I was a teen, there was only maybe a handful left. The one I frequented was Redwood Drive In (pictured) This drive in had six screens and doubled as a swap meet on the weekends. I had many memories of this place, from the swap meets, to watching The X Files movie, and of course, bringing dates and more in the cars if you catch my drift, lol. This drive in is still in operation however the pictured wood marquee burned-out in 1995. I watched it burn all that old wood and watching each letter fall off one by one. What are you're memories of any drive ins?

There was no drive in that I know of when we moved from Colorado. I just watched movies when I went on a date. What did you do.

We had a drive-in in our home town but I don't recall any anywhere in Western Australia that had more than one screen.

We still have a drive in around here but it has been many years since I went to it though. I have some wonderful memories of going to the drive in with friends.

This town used to have about 10 Drive-in movies scattered all around. Now the closest is 260 miles away.

I never been in one. I watched in movies about drive in cinema and where you need to park your car in it to watch movies. It would be neat if that kind of cinema were made again. It would interesting to try. Some might love a different way to watch movies.
