Just to prove to you that I am the biggest nerd in the world the first thing I googled when I found out we were moving to San Antonio, Texas was if there was a drive in theater still around. Sadly from what I found on the Internet there is not but I did find some really interesting facts about Texas and drive in theaters. Texas was host to the 3rd drive-in theatre to open in America, at Galveston in July of 1934 (the 1st & 2nd had opened in New Jersey and Pennsylvania). Texans had the biggest peak in the industry, hosting nearly 400 outdoor theatres.So tell me friends.....Whats your fondest memory of going to the drive in theater? Are you lucky does your city still have a drive in theater?

That everything amazing gets shut down.
Ever since I was a little girl I can remember having an obsession with drive in movie theaters. I vividly remember being 5 years old and going to the drive in theater in Long Beach which has now been torn down, to watch the Lion King when it first came out with my little boyfriend at the time. Are parents tagged along and sat in the backseat it was pretty much the cutest thing ever. Sadly now there is not one drive in theater left in Long Beach, California.
