Waxing Nostalgic Drive-Ins

What is better than a drive-in movie in the summer? NOTHING, that's what. I just Googled the nearest one and I have no clue where these towns are. Too far is where they are. I'm going to have to think about opening my own drive in now. How much could it cost to have a parking lot in the boon docks with a big screen & some concessions? 
Why are they almost all gone? 

The first drive -in was Hollingshead's drive-in which opened in New Jersey June 6, 1933.
The Moonlite Theatre has been a Virginia-drive in since 1948.
Some of these retro signs shout poodle skirts & pony tails!  I bet a lot of spit has been swapped here. And how many kiddies fought to stay awake for the last movie or screamed in fear at the horror flicks?
Laying in the back of a pick up truck looking up at the stars is awesome and then you add watching some cheesy movies? That's living. That's youth. Ahh nostalgia.
If you are looking for something different to do take an adventure and support a drive-in before school is back in. Keep an old summer tradition alive. Get your bug spray, cooler and blanket set for a starry fun night.
