Drive-in movie screen

No longer a drive-in movie theater but the screen still stands. We used to go to this drive-in eons ago.
Our last drive-in was Knocked down a good 15 years ago,it was great fun and a real family event.

Thank you everyone. Drive-ins bring back a lot of good memories. I remember taking my kids to them in their pajamas and eating popcorn and having fun.

@betsylou This is the one outside of Bridgeville, Betsy. I've never been to the Moon one. They were a lot of fun.

We don't get those here. The closest I've ever got is to a Scout event called the Great Sleepout, where hundreds of scouts gather and a screen is put up and the kids stay up all night and watch films, sometimes under a tarpaulin if wet or under the stars if the night is dry - obviously with sleeping bags and blankets if needed! Nice capture with the declining light.

I used to love the drive-in, we have the same thing here- the lot is used as overflow parking for the airport

@cally @hillcrest Thank you. I noticed the field near the screen is now used as a soccer field.
