Drive-In

Last night JT and I went to the Drive-in. It used to be cheap to go. We got there and it was $8 per person. I guess that is pretty cheap for 3 movies. We saw Fantastic 4 II, Shrek III and Spiderman III. All 3 were pretty good. But it was a long night. The first one started at 21:15 and there was a 10 min intermission between each one. We rolled in the driveway at the house at 3:30 this morning. I am beat. JT did a lot of talking about what he has been doing and I have been doing and what are not too distant future holds... But that is another story.

Still, 3 movies for 8 bucks. NOT bad! I know there are still a couple of drive-ins here in the Chicago area that I would like to find.

I know in Austin they used to have a few makeshift ones on the side of bildings.

But then I would be jealous of my clone.

Besides, you don't have to attempt to be cute, you alreay are!

Drive in, huh?

Do they broadcast the sound through FM? I hope you didn't have those tin speakers that you hook to your window.

They do broadcast over FM but since we were sitting in the truck bed and JT does not have a slide-window, we hung one of the heavy speaker boxes over the side. It just adds to the atmosphere of the drive-in.

The owner of the drive-in has a recorded bit that he does about keeping the drive-in alive. He says that the cost of admission is just enough to pay for the movie, so to allow the drive-in to make money you need to visit the snack bar. I guess that is where the money is.

During the summer months the Drive-in here in Wichita is open every night. Spring and fall is just weekends.

How are the plans for Phoenix progressing?

Regular movie theater prices around here are $10.50 for one film. That would have cost you $31.50 for the trifecta....so not too damn bad for $8.00

I know that $8 for 3 movies is a deal, but the last time we went to the drive-in is was $10 a car-load. I guess I just need something to bitch about. :)

Thanks for the friend add! I haven't been to a drive in in 20 years. The bulldozed our drive-in to make way for the Costco back in the 1986-87. I look forward to seeing you around LJ.

Take care,

Cory

You know I am most interested in the conversation and the "But that is another story" comment. I know I am being nosey. I do have a question for you as well. Will you be in town during Leather Camp weekend? It would be nice to see you.
