One Hundred and Eighty Second Question

When was the last time you went to a drive-in movie?
Who were you with? What movie(s) was playing?

    I vaguely remember going with my best friend in junior high, but I have no idea what we saw. Or maybe I am *remembering* the drive-thru scene from Grease! lol

    i think in 1977...it was a movie called convoy...at least that's the last one i remember...then there used to be a another drive-in near me where on weekends it was 3 bucks a carload and they would show cheesy horror flicks among other things...nothing but carloads of loud drunken teenagers...oh those were the days...

    I remember going to the one by Cinderella city when I first moved to the Denver area, but I can honestly state that I have no idea whas was playing. I remember I went with a friend visiting from MN.

    The first movie I remember seeing in the drive-in was "How the West Was Won" at the Lake Park in Kansas City from the back seat of my Dad's '55 Ford Fairlane.

    The last was a kids movie we tried to take my boys to in '83 or '84 (they were about 4 & 5). I can't remember because after about 15 minutes we knew this wasn't going to work and came home...

    I went about 10 years ago, with my soon to be ex-husband. We saw a bad horror movie, can't remember the name.

    I went to a nearby Drive-In with my wife. Unfortunately, they never showed anything good, and we ended up seeing "Beethoven." Ick. It was also before remaining drive-ins had state-of-the-art sound equipment, so we had to tune our radios to 530 AM to hear it.

    Denver, Colorado... at the Drive in off of Santa Fe and Hamden Ave. (the one the Cristi went to.. by Cinderella City)

    And the movie was Terminator 2.

    I don't remember it. Supposedly I went as a very young child to see Bambi. As a teen we'd try to sneak into the drive ins through the sand pits (walking in), and usually have to run to avoid getting caught.

    I don't think we have any drive ins here in CT, so whenever I go to Maine I go. I think Twister was the last movie I saw there.and ironically enough the screen was blown over the following year and it took them a while to replace.

    Until 2004 we had an open drive in in my area. The last time I went was I think around 01 and the movies we saw were Coyote Ugly and Gone in 60 Seconds.

    lol, this question is hilarious in that my husband and I were just talking about drive-in's yesterday and how I think I'd love to open one.

    anyway, the last time I went to one I was probably 5 or 6. Although the movie wasn't for me, it was for my parents and apparently it was pretty risque because I was too stay laying down in the back seat and not watch it. They gave me candy and colors and explicit directions. Of course I tried to peek through the seats to see what all the hubbabaloo was about it, but I can't remember what it was I wasn't supposed to be watching.

    I don't think I've ever been to a drive-in movie. I don't think there are any around here. It would be cool though.
