Happy 75th Anniversary, Drive-In Theaters

I was thrilled when I saw this bit of entertainment news on A quick Google search confirmed Variety and a few other news sites have picked up the story.

Three cheers for families going to the movies!

Big Daddy has fond memories of he and his brothers piling into the back of the station wagon - in their P.J.s - for a family evening at the drive-in. Even though I grew up within 20 miles of one, my family never ventured out to see a drive-in movie. Little Sprout needs to experience this bit of Americana!

Here is a link to a map of open drive-in theaters across the U.S.A.

it's nice to know they're not all being converted into weekend flea markets...
