In the old days, we used to go to the outdoor drive in movie theatre. Who can forget the Grease Lightening song?! Grease was a great one to see on the big screen.
Basically, a green grassy field for cars to park and a big screen to watch a movie. There was a small restaurant to buy some food and go to the restroom. If we were bored with the movie or trying to get away from our “hands on date,” we’d head to the restaurant. Back then, no cell phones, so you couldn’t text your friend to “meet you” somewhere or find out where they parked.
Then… suddenly… drive in movie theaters went away. Not sure why that happened.
BUT NOW, they are making a comeback.
Colorado — I just read an article in The Gazette about a Colorado Springs Brewery (FH Beerwork East) that got creative during COVID. To stay in business, they opened their parking lot to drive in shows calling it CAR SEAT CINEMA. Sounds like they are doing this once a week, it’s been going well. Now, they are back open to customers, social distancing, of course. Sounds like a fun place.
July 4th Fireworks Cancelled — I say we go to an outdoor movie!
HAPPY 4TH of JULY!

Good choice for an example – “Grease” – considering that drive-in movie scene with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. Always had a crush on the lovely Ms. Newton-John. Still do.
