7 Things About Drive-In Theaters That Prove They Are The Best Way To Watch A Movie

- Page 1


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.

4. Relaxing

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.

I know, I know, no more reboots! Everyone is sick of our favorite movies getting made over and over again, but Hollywood seems to be out of ideas and they've got to make something. This time it's going to be a remake of arguably the best Will Smith movie ever: Men In Black. Sony plans to go the Jurassic World route, and introduce new characters in the already established world.

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood.
