  • we still have one called Broadway drive in
  • We have one called Palace Garden Drive Inn in Indiana PA.....Sheriden Drive Inn was that in Sharon?
  • The Peachtree.
  • Starlite Drive-in was my favorite and then became a skating rink. Twilight became a shopping center. Sunset is now a Sam's Club.
  • "40th Avenue Drive In Theatre" ... back in the 70s, in Red Deer, Alberta, 40th avenue, south of 32nd street, was still a thin gravel road leading out of town, between two farms, to merge with the Delburne Highway ... with the drive in being in a corner of one of the old farms ... now, the city has grown and all of that thin gravel road is now a 4 lane paved main street between two new subdivisions.
  • Circle 4 Drive-in in Lexington, Ky. and the Starway Drive-in in Frankfort, KY.
  • There were two. The Cassidy and The Starlight. Long gone years ago. They had the old crappy speakers that crackled from being almost ripped out every time someone drove away with them still attached. Fun times.
  • Skyview Drive-in,,In Belleville Illinois;) Great Fun!!!
  • Definitely. Ours was the "Tower"...just outside of town. Gosh, I miss it! And the cars then did not have bucket seats with the gear box between them. "Snuggling" was easy. And you could pack your own snacks (sighhhh).
  • Is it awful that I can't remember the name of it? I do remember we had to drive 21 miles to get to it. And I DEFINATELY remember those wonderful flipping hot dogs and marching cups of soda .. all telling us to hit the snack bar during the Intermission. lol
  • The only one I've ever known is the Milford Drive-In.
  • Thunderbird Drive in Fort Lauderdale, Fl. We would go in our jammies and bring pillows and blankets. As I got older we would bring chaise loungers and sit outside. It is a huge swap meet now.
  • WE STILL HAD ONE up until 3 months ago....Here in Lewistown, Montana......one of the very few left in the USA.....we were very very very sad to see it go. It was the Westernaire Drive Inn.....Had a big wing ding the last movie they did. We really hated to see it go. Most kids have no idea what a drive in movie even is.....thank goodness my son was able to go to one for the last time....he will be alble to tell his kids he has "been there, done that".....LOL thanks for the memory +4 for you.
  • We had several in the Chicago area where I grew up. The one we went to closest to home was called the Sky High Drive In in Addison, IL ... I think. Lots of fun, horrible food!
  • My favourite and the one drive in I have visited most till date is the 'Woodlands Drivein' in Chennai, India. This was in 1978-79 when I was working in Chennai. It was located on the Cathedral Road. Once I discovered this drive-in it became a habit. I kept driving in everytime I passed that way. I was 25 years old by the time I visited my first drive in! This is because I had been living in smaller towns till then. Excellent Masala Doasas and coffee they served there at Woodlands Drivein. It is closed now, I learn. The 25 year lease on which they had taken the land expired and they had to move the Drivein to the Highway from their location in the heart of the city. I wouldn't be able to visit it at the same old settings even if wanted to now. So much for my first Drivein experience. . Images of Masala Dosa for Loggybren:
  • ahh :[ they closed ours down recently..it was so fun. But it was called Starlight.
  • There were 3 close by that we went to in St. Louis county. The South Twin, Ronnie's and 66 Drive In. I loved those days. When we were really little, they showed 3 movies (and cartoons). My brother and I took a nap in the afternoon, but still wore our pajamas because we'd never stay awake through the second movie. Mom made "real" oil-popped popcorn and packed sodas (back when they all came in glass bottles) in a cooler. They were still around when I was in college, but they've all disappeared now.
  • I used to go to the Portage Drive in and the Douglas drive in in Michigan and we once rode horseback to see a western movie at the drive in Boulder Colorado. I think they are all closed now. There still one in the town closest to me in Libby Montana though.
  • We still have one - Stars and Stripes Drive In. Home of the famous chiuahua sammich!
  • Thunderbird in Ft. Lauderdale. It is still open and has 14 screens.
  • The Family Drive In out in Stephen City VA is still filling up 2 screens every weekend during the season. Their website is here: http://www.user.shentel.net/ccrkcr/drivein.html
  • The Hayward Motor Movies. I could watch the movie from my bedroom window and in the summertime I would open the window and I could hear the movie. How many people were you able to get into the trunk of your car? And don't tell me you never did it. When I lived in Palmdale, Ca, we used to take a whole van full of boys (we took care of juvenile delinquents for the state of California) and back in so we could open the back doors and all look out of the van. Some of the boys would sit on top of the van. Actually, when I first read the question I thought about the old drive-in restaurants where the girls carried a tray to your car and hung it on the window frame.
  • Yes!! I remember them and I LOVED them! The last one in operation in the Atlanta area is now closed. I went my final time almost 20 years ago. It was a movie featuring Ellen Barkin. The Twilight Theatre was the name of it :)
  • There were two. Turnpike Drive-In (just off exit 9 of the NJ Turnpike) and Brunswick Drive-In (US 1 in North Brunswick).
  • Let's see. The last time I was there was when that movie Disturbia came out, so like two years ago. It's called West Wind Sacramento 6 Drive-In. BTW, it is still open.
  • I think it was the Park Drive-In. Original name - huh?
  • Winchester Drive-in. And it's still open! The cowboy-guys arm waves at night when the lights are on.
  • I finally found the right drawer in my brain! It was THE BIG BUN! I am so proud of myself!
  • The Do Drive Inn, and the Air Show. Haha quite a few years ago.
  • Five Points Drive In
