There are several less than a 20 minute drive from my house. Now if I just had a warm female to steam up the winders with me I'd be in heaven.

Used to go all the time as a kid.  I haven't seen one in this state in well-over ten years.

Nearly every small town in Texas had one at one time. Now they are all but a thing of the past. Just thinking of all the things that go on there, dates with no idea of what movie is showing, steamed windows, tailgate parties, learning the facts of life and love.

Nearest to me now is about 50miles. But when the kid goes to camp this summer????..... fullclip

Got one just 5 minutes from my house on Hwy 101 and another a hour away on Hwy 3 on the way to Bremerton with 2 screens , its on the historical register . There is also a magazine that highlights them .

Think of how easy it would be to bootleg a movie !!!

Heck, boyz, when Arock, Jarhead_22 and I were driving back and forth between Barry, Illinois, and the BRC site, we passed a drive- in just outside Pleasant Hill, Illinois, every day!

'The Scorpion King' was playing.

There is one somewhere on the eastern outskirts of Metro Atlanta

Take a look at this website... it has locations of drive-ins

Aimless, I just found out that there is a drive in a bout 30 minutes from me so if I could get the drive in to play the game and annex the property to Canada, I could watch hockey, drink with a beautiful woman, and fog up the windows during the intermissions!  The best of both worlds.

Ahhh Drive Ins...Used to go to the Lincoln Drive In just outside of NE Philly. Steamed the windows many many times. What a great place to get laid!!!

On Sunday night...It was off to the Tacony Palmyra Drive In in NJ to watch the smokers. I used to take my parents 71 Ford Country Squire Wagon. It did not have the 3rd seat but it had the well. Used to put a couple of the guys in there to beat the admission price.

None left in the area now...what a bummer!!!

The mosquito was that thing that was biting legs on the ass while he was doing the horizontal mambo on the hood of the car....

I just looked at the website of the one on Moreland Avenue here in Atlanta.... It's in a part of town that is a good place to get shot... I'll bring the AR if I go

when I was growing up, there was one at the NE corner of Parker and I75 in Plano.

When I was in high school, during the summer, Monday nights, this was the place to be for the party crowd!!!  Hot chicks, booze, and other recreational chemicals galore.  Young and dumb, but at the time, it was a blast.

I think they showed movies too.

I remember seeing "Papillon" with my dad there when I was about 12 - 1977 or so.

Lots of fun.

I never thought about that Aimless. I guess sports are out but I've never been to a drive in.  It's a possibility.

Should we put up a poll to see who has ever been laid or drunk at a drive inn? i paid for many movies that I never got to watch[;)] fullclip

I used to go as a kid. My aunt and uncle once upon a time ran the Skyline Drive-in in Waynesboro. We got in free. I remember my cousin and I having trouble for a week with nightmares after we saw "Slithis" and "Squirm" in a double feature...
