Drive-In Movie Memories


I watched this documentary on PBS today and really enjoyed it. I found a cut-up version on YouTube that shows most of the documentary (44 minutes out of the 58 minutes). The clips on YouTube are being used to promote the sale of the DVD on Amazon.com. There are some weird parts where the voices blend over each other, but other then that it is very watchable and very interesting. If you read my blog with any regularity you know that we are fortunate enough to still have access to two fully functional drive-in theaters that we like to visit regularly. Its getting to be the drive-in time of year for those of you who don't live in the sunny south. You should do a little Internet research and find a drive-in near your home to visit this summer.

Thanks for sharing that. I am definitely going to check it out. There is not a drive in my area...sadly....I think it might have something to do with the endless rain!!!!

One of these days I am going to move the graveyard somewhere sunny....and close to a drive in.

Cheers!
