I was camping these last few days at a campground near Tampa, FL. When we went out to explore the area we found a Drive-In movie theater in Ruskin. They were showing the double feature of A Day in the Neighborhood, the Mr. Rogers movie and Jumanji, The Next Level. My husband and I were so excited to be able to go. Our first date 38 years ago was at a drive in, lol.

What a blast from the past! When I was a kid in Michigan there were 4 Drive-ins within a few miles of our house. My parents would load up the station wagon and off we went with a brown paper sack of popcorn, in our jammies. We saw all the great early Disney movies there. Lady & the Tramp, Son of Flubber, Mary Poppins....Now everyone of those drive-ins are gone.
They lasted until the 80's and I was able take my two sons. Great fun for families! Some had playgrounds for kids to play at while waiting for the movie to start.

At the Ruskin theater a gentleman came on the speakers to welcome everyone and thank us for coming. He said that there are still 7 drive-ins left in Florida but sadly 2 might close this year due to lack of customers. The price was so reasonable, $6 for adults, and if you went to the snack bar the food was also reasonable, $4.50 for a huge bag of popcorn.

Does anyone have a drive-in close to where you live? If so, hope you get a chance to visit and that you enjoy going as much as we did.

The movie A Day in the Neighborhood was a great movie. I would rate it a 4 hanky movie. I always cry at feel good movies so if you are the same be prepared! The Jumanji movie was entertaining also.
