Last weekend, we took a bit of a road trip to catch a movie.
AT A DRIVE-IN!! Let me rephrase that...at 1 of only 5 drive-in theaters left in MinneSOOOta!
I was a drive-in virgin. Er...yikes. That came out sounding totally wrong. What I mean is, I had never ever been to a drive-in before!
It was awesome. The Long Prairie Drive-In is exactly what I thought a drive-in would be like...vintage speakers playing 50's music (at least I think it was 50's music...) before the start of the movie,
an old time snack bar replete with everything from popcorn (duh!) to root beer floats,
and, of course...the screen. It was enormous!
There are little hills that you pull your car up onto so that you are angled toward the screen...a huge area in front of the screen where kiddos can run before the movie starts, and friendly patrons who will let your 2 year old play with their kiddo's baby stroller.
It was awesome.
And now...I think I'm going to become a drive-in junkie.
Oh...and PS...we saw Toy Story 3...AWESOME movie!!!
