My very first Drive- In experience was when I was about 6 or 7. LOL I remember going to something called the Midnight Bug Invasion (triple- feature) they were showing. I remember this like it was yesterday! It was The Swarm, The Worm Eaters and Invasion of the Bee Girls. :cool:

They were also giving away these purple glowy worms things in a cup. I think they were candy as I recall, but I remember taking a bunch home. We tried to get them to glow for days.:D It was funny as hell. And yes, I have so many memories.

Does anyone have any Drive-In/ double features experiences (movies watched) to share?

I'm most fond of Invasion of the Bee Girls because everytime I watch this from my Mill Creek DVD set, it always brings me back to those great times!

BTW, I noticed this film requires you to sign up to watch the full movie online on you tube because of the nudity! :rolleyes: Gimme a break! I have seen much MUCH worse on youtube than that!

My older brother took me to the drive in for the first time when i was 6 or 7 years old.

A double feature that I still vividly remember...Without Warning and Phantasm.

I just got to record Without Warning in HD last week on DVR and man the shivers came back almost immediately. :D

Phantasm and The Fog I remember going to a walk-in theater, I was about 8. I fell faint and had to be carried out of the theater before The Fog even began. As a kid that young, the yellow blood wasn't too easy to look at! lol

No Drive-Ins in the UK :(... Always loved the style and concept of a Drive-In though. Are they still popular over there in the states?

As Straker says, no drive-thrus here but the first film I remember going to see when I was very little was Tron (looking forward to the new one to come out btw).

I also remember going to a double bill of Empire Strikes back & Return of the Jedi (I was about 7 at the time).

They need to put the double features back on the silver screen for sure. I really miss those.

Sadly the few drive-ins that are around these days, have become more of rarity these days. There are still a few around, but not enough.

I'm still not sure why a lot of drive-ins closed down. Just as they were at the height of popularity, most were suddenly shut down, which is a crock.

There's a drive-in across town here but they never show any of the old stuff, just the new stuff, which is a crock too.

Yeah. At our old drive in we use to get double features like that. I think the idea was, show the kiddies their films first, and they either go to sleep or home when the more mature film comes on.
My fav was when they had a classic night. And they showed salems lot. Scared the shit out of me. I wouldn't look out my bedroom window for months.

My first drive in movie was when I was 5 or 6 yrs. old. It was at the local outdoor drive in. I'm sure you've seen these... Big screen outside, and speakers that went inside of the car so you could hear the movie. The movie was The Exorcist, (The original one, when it first came out). I did see several more after that, one was The Fly, (1958 verson), Night of the living dead (1967 verson), and several others. The drive in is no longer in use, however it is still there. The screen and everything. Everybody moved up to the theatre where you just sit and watch it, inside. I didn't care for that one. I prefered the outdoor drive in, myself. Now a days, I find it easier to just get the movie myself, and watch it at home. Much more quiet, Popcorn is cheaper, soda is cheaper, no ticket to buy, and most important... no standing in line.

Yes, you have a point there. I never thought of it in those terms. Picture it... Just go ahead and drive the car right into the theater. people will scatter, you will get your pick of any spot you want, and all the popcorn and soda you can drink, and all for free.
