How many of you have been to one? The ONLY time I was at one, it was the last night the theater was going to be open. They were literally paving paradise to put up a parking lot. For years, the two screens stood in the middle of the parking lot.Â Yeah.
My dad took us, we brought our own snacks, and pillows and blankets. When we left, he stole our speaker- but so was everyone else. I don't remember what we saw, but I remember the experience. I also remember that when we looked out the back window, we saw the other movie playing, we just couldn't hear it.
It was a double feature, I remember that. I also remember that they were selling food at the concession stand cheap- like popcorn tubs for $.50, and hot dogs for a quarter. I walked with someone over and got a hot dog. I paid with my own quarter.
Last night, I was on Facebook- a site I rarely use, btw, and a chat box popped up. Now, not being a regular user, I wasn't used to that. I kinda wish there was a way to turn it off- I'm not a chat room, IM user type of person. I get frazzled too easily.
But, it was my cousin, who lives up north. We're close in age, and he was raised in the town one over from us. His older sister is my brother's age, so we were all thrown together quite a bit. Now, he, his mom, and his sister & her family all live up north.
Well, they're only 30 minutes away from one of the towns I want to take the kids camping to, Traverse City. He's been recommending things to do in the area, and brought up the Cherry Bowl- which is a drive in theater! It also has a mini golf attached to it, plus a playground for kids, and it only plays movies that are family friendly!
How cool is that? There's no price listed, but I think that'll have to be one of our evenings while we're up there.
