Drive-In Movie

How long has it been since you were at a drive-in movie? It has been a few years for us. I understand that Athens still has their drive-in. Anyone interested in getting all the old classics together and have a night out at the drive-in?

I would LOVE to see this happen again even though I would not be able to attend.

I can provide a gathering spot just down the street from the theater behind the Athens Chik-Fil-A if everyone wants to caravan in together (long story why and I can share it with everyone while we wait for everyone to gather).

Several years ago I attended a drive in /cruse at the Guntersville D I and one at Tullahoma Tennessee at the new type drive in . Be sure to bring your bug repel spray ..

Agreed! The last one we did in Athens had an awesome turnout:

From what I recall, I don't think bugs were much of an issue the last time we did this, but who knows how it would be this year. The crazy weather patterns of late seem to affect the bug populations.

Bug spray definitely wouldn't be a bad idea, but you could also just roll up the windows if it gets too bad. I would think they'd be attracted to the light on the screen more than us sitting in the dark anyways.

As did I! It was my first drive-in experience and was very fun. Highly recommended car bucket list item.

I really hate that I won't be able to make it to this one.

Does anyone know the owner/manager of the Athens Drive-In? Or someone that works there? If so, may be able to coordinate an event and movie for us and our cars. Anyone?
