Have you been to the drive-in recently? Back in middle school, all of us decided to go to the drive-in movieplex all the time.
Bear in mind that was over 25 years ago, plus the world was a legitimately strange site.
Gas was less than fifty cents a gallon, cigarettes weren’t didn’t cost much more, but at the drive-in local adolescents had a site to park, hang out, maybe drink some beers or make out with their wifeys plus boyfriends. I was ecstatic to see that they recently reopened that old drive-in, but the reality of it did not live up to our cherished memory. As hot plus humid as it is outside, you can’t rest in your car without the air conditioning on. The total amount of gasoline you will burn up running the engine so you can have a/c for many or more than two minutes is enormous! It had novelty value, of course, but by the end of the double feature I was ready to go beach beach house to our central A/C plus never go back. Back in the afternoon it was the best option all of us had, but now there are streaming services plus PPV, so you can watch whatever movies you want on your sizable screen television in air conditioned comfort. Maybe when gas prices come back down, plus I can afford to run the car’s air conditioning for all that time, I will consider going back. As for now, it’s a lot cheaper, not to mention more convenient, to stay in the air conditioned comfort of our own beach beach house for movie night.
