A view from the "Cheap Seats"My Nana has requested that I no longer use the word cheap to describe myself, so as a painfully frugal Mommy.. I was thrilled to find that is was FAR more affordable for a family to go to the Drive In.
We got there early enough, found a parking spot, and we to hit up the concession stands. The owners and operators have to share the majority of ticket sales with the studios, so they depend on their concession sales to keep their doors open. Having said that... their prices were completely reasonable. They had everything from buckets of popcorn and sodas to funnel cakes to meals. We didn't have one we ate just before we went.. but I was told by several other patrons that the burgers were AWESOME. I guess I will have to see for myself next time. All in the name of honest reviews. :o)
They had a playground for toddlers...
In closing.. We had a huge helping of family fun. We saw 2 movies that we both wanted to see, we talked to other people around us who not only go to the Drive In often, but many of them expressed how sad they would be if they didn't have one to go to.
I can say with great certainty that we will be going back! I look forward to it and urge you all to see if you have one in your area.
