week I found out that one of the few drive-in theaters here in the Denver metro
area will likely be closing after this season. It had been over twenty years since I’ve been to a drive-in. So, I seized the opportunity to take the girls
to experience a passing icon.
experience was great. I had forgotten
the sense of community at a drive-in. As
we pulled up we saw families setting up lawn chairs, card tables, and coolers. Blankets were thrown on top of mini vans,
hatches were opened, and groups of people huddled cars next to each other.
footballs were being tossed the announcer came over the FM radio transmission
with a friendly reminder. “Please help
keep the place clean and put trash in the bags that were handed out at the
entrance. On your way out you will see a
green blinking light where you can toss your bags on the ground.”
$9 per adult and $2 for each kid for 3 movies – not bad. We brought our own popcorn and pop, but ended up going to the concession just for the experience.
