    Now if you snuck in a guitar so you could noodle whilst watching the movie, you have my attention

    don't go to the theater anymore; it's too stressful

    Haha, I have witnessed that before! Quiet part in the movie and all you here is a big ol' bottle of something (wine bottle?? didn't sound like a soda bottle..) tipping over and rolling alllllllll the way down from the back row. No one stopped it or went to retrieve it but we all had a good laugh for about 20 seconds :D:D:D

    At least you wouldn't have to deal with peoples' phones ringing or seeing light from peoples' screens in the theater. And in the past, really, I imagine it was probably common for people to go to a drive-in with a date and sometimes paying more attention to their date than the movie..

    Last movie I saw in the theater was Queen last year. My wife has her personal water bottle that she takes everywhere. I hope it's everybody's right to carry water. We didn't eat anything in there. But I think it's unfortunate that they charge so much for the tickets and food there.

    I'll admit it, I've carried stuff into theaters. When I was really broke. Come to think of it, since the extra $2 they charge for a coke or a box of Junior Mints actually made a significant difference in my budget back then--what the hell was I doing going to the movies?

    These days if I don't wanna pay concessions prices, I just don't eat. I can wait 2 hours.

    Oddly, if you ever plan a dream vacation in Detroit, they still have Drive-ins.

    I made a delivery up in Detroit, and I asked my client if what it was like.

    "Are you packing?" he asked. "Always." I answered.

    "You will like it, sound comes out of car stereo! Not window speakerbox." he said.

    Nine friggin screens, and the bathrooms are painted glossy battleship gray.

    I saw Star Wars during its' first run at a drive in. Watching out of a van with the back doors open on lawn chairs, with the little speaker stuck in the window. How 70's was that?

    Speaking of 70s and drive-in movies, I think this is Cheech & Chongs' best bit, or should I say hit:

    I used to go to the movies all the time before I had kids. Now I take them to see kids movies and get away once or twice a year by myself. I 100% sneak in candy for my kids, but I still buy popcorn and soda. I always eat more buttered popcorn than any human should and I always feel like crap after. I think I've seen 2 movies without eating anything and 1 or 2 where I snuck in a turkey sandwich. I felt much better after. Even proud.
