Every Saturday night my little brother and I would hurry to eat supper, take a bath, and put on our pajamas. We'd race to the car, whooping with excitement, everyone would pile in, and drive to the local drive-in. Mind you, this was every Saturday night. We took our pillows, and had a huge paper grocery bag full of popcorn. Since 50's parents wisely made small children go to bed at around 7 or 7:30, we pretty much only got to see the "coming attractions", cartoon, and 30 minutes of the movie before we were filling the car with baby-snores.
Sadly, today there are very few drive-ins in America, but a few can still be found in operation. Sadly, also, there are even fewer paper bags around. But if you can find a drive-in, and a paper bag, pop some corn and go see a movie! Take kids and grandkids, and let them experience something special before it's gone forever.
