The Ride-In Theater

When we were all young, drive-in theaters were the most fun (almost) you could have sitting in a car though sitting was never in-plan. Our neighborhood venue was ironically named, The Thunderbird Drive-in. The memories! Fast-forward, quickly! This summer is Miller Outdoor Theater’s 90th year and their big screen movie shows are as close to those hazy nights at The Thunderbird as we’ll ever be again. Last night several of us rode-in and caught the movie, Men In Black. We just sat there and watched — the plan is completely different now.

Riding home the memories came flooding back … there’s something about seeing a movie on a big screen … at an outdoor theatre … under the stars.
