Drive-in theaters were a monumental experience for any teenager. Your parents were fine with you going to the movies, but it was as if the drive-in was this cool teenage-version of the movies, that you felt like a bad-ass for going to.
1. You could turn your car into a bed
If you or one of your friends parents let you borrow their hatchback or truck, you could turn the whole back into a pillow bed, making it the ultimate viewing experience.
2. Double features
Okay, probably the best part of going to the drive-in was paying for one movie and getting to see two or sometimes even three. Also, it was the only time your parents would be okay with you staying out until 2 a.m.
3. Easier to sneak snacks
If it was a drive in theater with a concession stand you usually weren't allowed to bring in your own snacks. But, you could sneak in 5 pizzas if you wanted to and nobody would notice. Sure beats the movie theaters if you ask me.
Getting to watch a movie under the stars makes the experience just that much better. Also, if you fall asleep during the movie, no one will judge you because no one can see you.
