BBL 2013-2014 | Watch a Movie at the Drive In


Why did I include this on my Bucket List?

I often say that I was born in the wrong decade.  I seem to be drawn to the 50's and 60's, with a love of everything from the music to the cars to the diners to the drive-ins.  It saddens me that someday most, if not all, of these remnants of the past will only exist in photographs and/or museums.  It has been 15 years since I've been to a drive-in, and I wanted to go at least one more time before the chance is gone forever.

Was the experience what I had hoped it would be?

The experience of watching the movie was exactly what I expected, but I guess I was hoping for more out of the theater itself.  I was expecting something a little more reminiscent of old schools drive-ins, and I even took my camera along to capture some photos.  I was disappointed when we arrived and there wasn't even a lit sign for the theater at the entrance.

The details...

Tonight Kevin and I went to see 'This Is Where I Leave You' at the West Wind Glendale 9 Drive-In.  Since it was a weeknight, the theater was pretty empty and it was nice to have the theater mostly to ourselves without a lot of other cars and noise distracting from the movie.
