The Last Picture Show

I miss the drive-in movie. They were fun. Even with the surround sound and HD pictures of today, I think I would much more enjoy this place in its prime.

I was traveling and found this gem. I was able to drive over the humps in the parking lot, which were covered in weeds. I positioned my car to face the screen and it was magic!

Why do most things completely deteriorate over time, but these giant screens survive?

I saw some of the greatest films and classic monster movies at a drive-in, with my family and friends! What a wonderful photo this is that brings back a "blast from the past"! Awesome HDR image and title!

They were certainly built to survive the elements. This is a very nice, nostalgic shot. :)

I grew up in NJ - and they have re-opened the drive-thru that in that neck of the woods....there's just something romantic about it - and so sad to see them go. Great shot!

There aren't any of these in the UK, but we went all the time when I was growing up in South Africa, and yes they were great fun... I doubt whether any have survived though...

We, in Belgium, only know these from Amercan movies.
Your image is very neat!

Very nice shot with just that touch of salmon color. We still have a drive-in near our cottage in northern Michigan... somehow the 'idea' of them is much cooler than the 'reality' for me! 8^)
