THE BROTHER'S GRUNT

Guest
as i was getting stoned i thought what ever happend to drive-in theaters? i remember when i was a kid we wen't all the time. we would walk in through the back with a beerball and get fucked up. where i live you gotta drive like 100 or so miles to go to one now. do any of you have a drive-in where you live or close by? what are your memories?

The few that are around now have a setup whereby you tune your car stereo to a certain station to pick up the movie sound. That's bound to be better because I remember at least one circumstance where a carload of us overindulged and tried to drive off with the little grey speakerbox still hanging onto the window. Needless to say, the window of the car didn't survive the episode.

Ok ya got me started here.
When I was in high school drive-ins were where we'd be on a Fri. or Sat. nite.
Me and about 3 or 4 other friends.
When they chraged per person someone (or 2) would always hide in the trunk. Eventually they charged by the car instead.
Monster movies were the big thing back then. And westerns.
Then, when I graduated and got my own car and started dating, mmmmm.
Because drive-ins were passion pits. It was a safe place for teens to go and neck.
To keep patrons from getting carried away, the drive-ins in my area hired a guy or two who would walk patrols through the lot, wearing long white coats.
I didn't go much when I was married, but about the time I got divorced vans started getting real popular. So I bought one, fixed it up inside with cabinets and a bed and buddy I was in business.
Vans were relegated to the last few rows in the drive-in (because of their size). We parked backwards and opened the rear doors.
The had abandoned the white coat patrols by then, so anything went.

And besides sex there's a lot of other stuff you could do that you can't do at (most) walk-ins.
Like drinking beer, smoking pot, being naked and talking.

-The sound system sucked.
-The food from the snack bar was atrocious.

I saw Appollo 13 in a drive in THeater. I think there is still one in Cape Cod where I go every year. I dont know if there are any within 3000 miles of me!

Perhaps it's some sort of primal thing. Trying to get back to where you were concieved.

I'll bet tens of thousands of children were concieved in drive-in movies.

Thank god they don't put "Place of conception" on birth certificates.

"Drive-in movie" would fill a lot of blanks.

Hahahahahahaaha

Damn I miss those places! Did anyone ever really watch the movies?

What killed drive-ins?
Cable tv. And VCR's.
Cause with new movies on cable & tape, you could get away with even more than you could at a drive-in, like go to the bathroom naked, all in the comfort of your own home.
