BBL 2013-2014 | Watch a Movie at the Drive In
#8 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.
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.
