She didn't get home till 2:30.
|It's out next week! August 7th!|
She had a blast, of course. Thought Ice Age was adorable and that Batman was awesome.
It all reminded me of my first drive-in experience. And as I have very few memories of my early childhood, the fact that I remember this speaks volumes. I was around seven and went with family friends to the local drive-in. It was a double-header (are they always?), and the first movie was Mary Poppins. Seeing it on the big screen was pretty magical. I was thrilled.
But the second movie?
Friday the 13th.
I wasn't so thrilled with that. Nightmares for weeks. I'm not sure what those family friends were thinking. I still can't watch that movie.
These days drive-ins are few and far between, and I find that to be a little sad. They're kind of special. Memorable. Most everyone has a drive-in story. So now I'm in the mood to go to the drive-in, too. Just as long as Jason's not on the big screen...and I get home before 2:30 AM.
Have you been to a drive-in recently?
