    Strangely though.. my point of view changed when I was blessed with 3 daughters...

    I'm thinking there's plenty of "B" rate movies that are perfect for Drive-ins now-a-days.

    I never saw... the "Saw" movies so.. eh, I wouldn't know..

    Shouldn't those be called "walk-ins"?

    There's one around here somewhere- maybe a couple hours from me.
    I saw Planet of the Apes as a kid.
    Also some porn flick we saw in high school.

    Did you get the commercials for Pic? You set it on your dash and burned it like incense. Was supposed to keep skeeters away.

    How about crispy crispy Tolono's pizza?

    I used to love the drive-in movie experience.

    As a child the drive we went to in had the best swings on earth. They were enormous so the swing experience was a lot of fun. I remember watching the entire movie "El Cid" while swinging.

    And as a teenager in the late 60's?

    Well the swinging was a tad different but no less fun!
