I have very fond memories of going to the Drive-In with my aunt and sisters as a youngin. I remember watching movies in my pjs while lying on layers of blankets and pillows and eating nachos. What's not to love? Alessandro had never been to the Drive-In before. That is, until I made him go with me one day in 2010. (We saw Inception). Alessandro has a leg twitching problem, so he didn't appreciate sitting in a car for that long. And he also has a falling asleep problem, so he did that too. The experience wasn't a bust, but I wasn't sure if I was ever going to get him to go with me again.
So, for security purposes, I bought a Living Socials deal when one was offered...2 tickets for the price of 1. And one recent weekday night, we had our second Drive-In date.
No one was there but us.
It was the coolest.
We didn't get nachos, but we brought our own snacks: Oreos and milk. We saw Cabin In The Woods. It was lame. We had a blast.
P.S. I just asked Alessandro if he'd ever want to go back and he said, "I'd be just as likely to go back to the Drive-In as I would be to go to a regular movie." So there is still hope : )
