I grew up with them.
Mom would pack us kids up in the neighbor's station wagon for a night of fun at the local Drive-In.
8 of us in one car! My mom, my sis, my brother, me and the two little girls from next door and their mommy.
We all played on the playground at the front of the theater with out our mommy's.
We would run up and down the bumps and the isles.
(I'm really not as old as the moms look pictured above and our car was a Vega not a 1940 oldsmobile)The lights would blink twice and we would run back to our cars and
hook up the speakers to the windows.
If we were really good we would get to go to the snack bar at intermission.
I'm not even gonna talk about the teenage date nights at the Drive-In! Yikes!
I missed them so much ,that last summer
We had us a back yard movie night. (back when we had a back yard)
We got some jumbo size movie Candy Bars and Popcorn tubs.
We even had hot dogs wrapped like they do at the movies.
set up some chairs some blankets on the grass, a few lights, a big wall...
We borrowed a projector from my Uncle and we were ready to go!
We invited some good old friends from High school
(that's why the high school year books are on the blanket)
So we decided to see a good old movie...
(not recommended for children under 21) even if it is 30+ years old
We all loved this movie...Some of us could say the lines word for word.
at one point in the evening we were All singing
One Tin Soldier
The guy in the back row, with his arm in the air believes he is Billy Jack.
We opted for wine and beer rather then soda pop.
It was lots of fun and I would recommend it to anyone with a back yard, friends, a projector and a classic old movie!
I want to do another one with Grease!
What old classic movie would you pick?
