Favorite Drive-in Theater Movie

Recommended Posts

Big paper bags of popcorn with lots of butter. Footie jammies and lying on the roof (trying not to dent it). Parking backwards and "cozying up" in the back. Lots of great memories are made at the drive in!

 

But, what is the most memorable movie you've seen at the drive-in??

 

I still remember seeing West World with Yul Brynner (1973). Freaked me out so bad that Mom made Dad take us home early. That movie still freaks me out! Great movie though...

Almost ANY movie is good at a Drive-in theatre. What is the most memorable movie that I've seen? . . . Probably Austin Powers at the Admiral Twin Drive-in on Route 66. The movie was funny, but, I think it was so memorable because its a great drive-in on Route 66!

I don't have a favorite, but I do remember my earliest- John Wayne in the Sons of Katie Elder. The last one I saw was the original Vanishing Point.

The local drive-in was owned by the same fellow who owned one of the two local indoor theaters. In the summer, the sit-down operation was closed and all booked movies shown at the drive-in. That's why I got to see the much ballyhooed Cleopatra from my Chevy immediately after release. I was reminded of that when the movie was recently named to a list of biggest flops of all time. Not sure it's my favorite but it's certainly memorable.
