Over the weekend I went to our newly reopened Drive-In in Greenwood, SC (http://25drivein.com: not the greatest website but I guess it gets the job done.)
What did I see you ask….I saw the Double Feature of Star Trek and Wolverine.
Star Trek was still awesome. Wolverine was not as bad as I had heard…but I could have done without the Professor X thing at the end…value add…nothing.
The drive in is nice. The owners have spent a great deal of effort in getting things in running order. The bulbs they bought for the screen are incredible. It’s the best outdoor screen I have ever seen. They are having some trouble with the audio broadcast though. You have to find a good parking spot to pick up the audio on your radio and even then you get the occasional interference. But I have confidence they will work this out eventually.
One last thing about the drive in. Compared to the regular theatre…it’s cheap…$7 for adults and $5 dollars per kid. For a double feature of 2 new run movies…That’s like $3.50 for each movie for me… Their concessions are cheaper than most places too…especially since you can get burgers and fries in addition to the normal popcorn.
How about you? Do you have a local drive-in?
