    Here in Hawaii on Oahu we had drive-ins a long time ago. Now they all converted to swap meets or what is known as flea markets. We loved them for we could go comfortably and buy food when we like to so we stayed near the concession when we went to the drive ins when I was younger. A bit more about Kam Drive In we used to go to when I was young here.

    Recently there was a drive in movie place built here where we live. However doubt we will ever go, as with hubby being
    off work so long, we have seen all we care to on the tube. My first date was at a drive in, seeing Tora Tora... nop, remember very little
    as war is not my thing...but he liked it.

    Depending on the kind of vehicle a person had, those speakers could scratch the window or wouldn't stay hooked on. And, on top of that, there were times a person would turn the knob for volume and the speaker wouldn't work.

    they did away with the hook on speakers and went to sending a signal to the car radio

    Yep, those speakers were for the most part all lousy. :)

    I don't remember going to the drive in as a teen but do remember going as a young mom. We could take my sleeping daughter and put her in her car bed in the back seat and we could enjoy a night out at the movies.

    It was great since I didn't trust babysitters with my children.

    Car radio is fine, IF the car radio worked. Not to change the Thread, but there are houses with very large Halloween and Christmas displays that the music is broadcast thru vehicle radio's. Pretty neat way to listen.
