When was the last time you went to a drive-in?

This one is still running in Gatesville off of HWY 36. I believe that there is still one running in San Antonio - the Mission Drive-In theatre.

One of my memories of the drive-ins was returning from the high school football game, along with other pep squad and cheerleaders and drill team members, having the bus driver stop the bus along West Avenue so that we could take a peek at the Jaws movie that was showing on the big screen. We had sooo much fun that night. Of course, there were a lot of angry parents who were impatiently waiting for our return to the high school parking lot; and, our bus driver was probably fired for doing that for us - but, that was a part of living on the edge in high school - right???

What was your favorite drive-in story????

Just curious...

trouble927 - True. With the DVDs, why should one even leave the home; albeit I certainly love to be nostalgic at times!!

bannana_peaches4 - Where is Graham??? Might have to go exploring on a mission of drive-ins!!

In texarkana we had 2 drive ins, but one of them add 3 screens. they have since gone by the way making room for bigger and better things. i have been to the adult drive just outside of tyler.(the apache) it was on hwy 31 west of town but they moved it to the east side many years ago. dont even know if it is still around. heard about the one on redbluff but never made it over there. have seen the vacant lot just north of lufkin. i guess with DVD players no one really needs a drive in.

AlbertPrince - None???? Is it just an American tradition??? I never really thought about that before. Just thought it had been a derivative of something that existed elsewhere.


Very interesting concept though, someone might make a killing there if they introduced the concept there.

five_speed - While you didn't have the "ambience" of the actual drive-in, you and your friend seemed to have made your own comfy environment. Those memories do last fore-ever as well.

wetpantyslut2 - What? Building some more??? That is great news. I would love to have the opportunity to go to some new drive-ins with the new technology that would be available.

Nightguy_1961 - Long live good memories!!

lifeisablast333 - Hee hee.... yeah, that happend too. Funny story was when we went as a group of folks but I ended up with a guy driving me that I didn't really care for -- especially as much as he did me. He kissed me to no end and I felt trapped. Next time around I made sure someone else road to the drive-in with him. Wonder what happend to that guy??? lol.....

lv2likU69ing - A drive-in showing pornos??? Oh, my! I bet there are a lot of car hopping going on around there... lol....

Geez Looezz! Are there still Drive In's opened? All the ones i remember in East Tex. (Livingston, Diboll, & Nacogdoches)are all Junk Yards...Even the Adult one in Redland (just north of Lufkin). And the one on RedBluff Dr. in Deer Park/Pasadena turned into an adult one before we'd even been there a few years (before 1970).

Of course the other one in Deer Park i have very fond memories of (it closed down before i got into high school - 1974). We'd put the back seat down in the ol' International Travel Haul and put in a mattress or lots of blankets, find a place to park w/no one on one side of us and have a speaker on both sides of the car.

My buds and i would get in my friends pick up and pull in backwards at the one in Nac. (it closed shortly after i moved - 1983), and just chill and look for chicks (i think we should've been called the "loser patrol" in that regards...LO.

The last time i was at one was in the summer of 1986. My younger bro. and i were doing secret shopper work at the time and were in Iowa somewhere w/the weekend off. We found a double feature at the local drive in...I can't remember the first film, but the second one was Heart Break Ridge...very pleasent memories of time spent w/my bro., in a place we didn't know anyone, Oooh Rah! ing "Gunny Highway" and his recon's to victory. That was also the first time i'd been to one where you used your car radio instead of speakers hanging from your window. Ah, man, that Toyota Celica GTS my little bro. had, sure had a great sound system.

I never went to the drive through near Tyler (i was trying to "Oh, behave baby!" when i was living there in the mid 80's), but i sure know where it is.

Thanks, for the great memories TxRose.

There is a great adult drive in here near tyler in east tx. They show pornos every night. Its been some great fun to meet others here and just about anything and everything goes on in the evenings. No one to bother all the people there and ALOT of car hopping going on.

A buddy of mine, his girlfriend, and I went to a drive in in central Florida. This was one that you could tune your radio to get the audio part of the movie. Before we left the house, we had gone grill crazy...burgers, hot dogs, brats...the works. There was a triple feature playing...only remember that The Road Warrior was one of the flicks (Mel Gibson for Pres!).

But what was memorable about that night was people coming by, smelling the food we'd prepared. We had more than enough, so we shared. Pretty soon, we had our own party going and everybody had fun and no one complained.

Another good memory.....NG

I have never actually went to a drive through, but seen many movies on thier screen. My best friend in highschool lived across the road from the drive-through, and the screen faced towards his house. We'd get blankets and coolers and lay out in the field on the hill behind his house and tune into the drive in audio with his two-way radio. I saw Batman, Jurassic Park, and a bunch of others that way. It rocked.
