Drive-in Theatre

Yeah, my wife and I go to our "local" one quite a bit. Not so much recently as there are just aren't any good movies being released anymore... but when we were discussing what I'd actually miss about Sydney if the day ever comes when we can move up the coast, the drive-in (and my buds) was about the only thing I agreed I'd miss a bit. It's good fun.

 

As for eating out there, we always eat somewhere beforehand, or bring stuff in the car. No food at any kind of cinema experience in Australia is affordable.

I grew up with drive ins and have many fond memories as a kid, esp in the winter, bundled up with a hot thermos. I remember seeing CLOSE ENCOUNTERS and it looked like the UFOs were coming out of the sky! Our theatre also had one screen they would play adult movies on, we would turn around and sneak peeks ;)

 

I remember when they changed from the speakers on the cord to radio broadcast, I thought that was the best thing ever.

 

I did have a chance to take my own family a number of times before the last one here closed. The last movies I saw were BATMAN BEGINS, FANTASTIC FOUR and another comic movie.

 

We would always bring food/drink, but would still get something at the snack bar anyway :)

Never been to a drive-in. There are very few left, none in New Jersey that I'm aware of. There is one not far from me over the border in NY state but regrettably I've never gotten round to checking out a flick there.

    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it. 
    • Yeah, price of tickets. I just saw half priced tickets on Tuesdays for a limited time here too. I don't know what full prices are, but maybe they're only a couple of hundred dollars on Tuesdays.
    • I like it. To bad it’s just a digital and cassette release.
    • Doing you meaning Kent is the vocalist version of ADV.
