One of the things that we did was go to the drive-in. Oh, how I miss drive-ins! I grew up frequenting the Glenwood Drive-In in Atlanta, GA. Memories flood my mind of pajamas and lawn chairs and hamburgers and coolers. I saw Freaky Friday (1976) and Jaws there, among many others. So when I saw that Blue Ridge had a drive-in that plays first-run movies, I knew we had to check it out.
They were playing Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, which I have been wanting to see. And it was open on Sunday nights (our first night there) so I was super-excited! Oh, all my friends were teasing me that if we wanted to see the movie we should stay out of the backseat ;) … and that the best place to watch a drive-in movie was from the backseat. So cute you are, my friends!
Can I tell you that it is the BEST way to watch a movie? Seriously. I don't know why there aren't more of them. If I had the money I think I might build one. There are only 4 drive-in theaters left in GA and one of them is in Atlanta. The Starlight Six. They play first-run movies and as soon as they play another family movie we are taking the girls. Everyone needs to experience the unique fun that is the drive-in.
Here are some more photos of the Swan Drive-In:
And last, but not least …
I snuck around the corner while Brandon was getting our concessions and took this picture with my iPhone. This is the projector. Isn't that thing COOL?!?!?! It's a monster and on those round shelves are the films. I ♥ this … so nostalgic.
Seriously … one the BEST dates ever. I can't wait to check out the Starlight Six soon!
