There was nothing quite as fun as a night at the drive in with your man… And at every age, the whole experience meant something completely different! There’s only a few left throughout Australia now and this week marked the 82nd anniversary of the drive in movie! So tonight, share your memories of the nights on the backseat at the drive in! Tell us, who did you go with… And (if it’s legal enough) what did you do there?
We all have our memories and some are just hilarious. We’ve listed some of the best and most popular drive in films from our era! Which did you see?
“The drive-in was a perfect date location with the parking for a little necking already provided. Steamy windshields were evident in all directions. I guess this is where my first love for the drive-in resulted as a teenager with raging hormones. Of course many girls’ parents forbid their daughters to go on dates at the drive-in to protect them from guys like me. My date and I would attend even against her parents’ wishes. I do remember Goldfinger, starring Sean Connery, was my first movie I attended with a date”.
