I have fond memories of going to the drive-in movies as a kid. It wasn't a frequent outing for our family, but was just enough to make an impression. The last outdoor movie I think I ever saw at a drive-in movie theater was Savannah Smiles. My folks took us to that one because a family friend had worked on the film. I still remember driving down Fairview Avenue after night on the way home from someplace and craning my neck to see what kind of flick they were showing at the ol' FairVu drive-in!
What is it about watching outdoor movies? Instead of high quality digital sound and high definitionyou get mosquitos and a rinky-dink speakerand people sitting in your view on top of their cars Somehow, it's just fun.
Well, it's not quite the drive-in, but it IS outdoor movies! If you're in the mood for a family flick and evening out for the whole family, head out to Settler's Park any Friday through the end of August. This Friday you can catch Nancy Drew. Other upcoming films include Flushed Away, The Water Horse, and The Bee Movie.
By the way, did I mention it's free? Just don't forget the blankets and bug spray at home!
Oh, and if you're looking for a true drive-in experience, check out this listing of genuine Idaho Drive-ins:
