drive-in© 2013 Michael Fiveson

Remember these? When I was a 13 I lived very close to a drive-in and since I didn’t drive, my friends and I would climb under the back fence and watch movies by the picnic tables at the concession stand. The first 15 times we got thrown out and then the management came up with a novel idea. They gave us cards that would allow us in for free, through the front gate. That way, they wouldn’t have to chase us, and we wouldn’t be breaking the law. It was really brilliant thinking for 1962, and I will always appreciate it.
