#319: Go to a Drive-In Movie

LOCATION: South Bay Drive-in Movie Theater. San Diego, California.

This post is part of my San Diego/San Francisco trip series.

Drive-in theaters originated in the 1930s and rose quickly. However, over time, as real estate prices rose for land, drive-ins slowly diminished. Now, only 1.5% of movie theaters in the U.S. are drive-ins, thus making an experience at one rare to come by. Lucky for me, there was a drive-in theater right next to our hotel in San Diego!driveinmovie

We watched “Pacific Rim,” which wasn’t good, but it was awesome kicking back in the car without any annoying strangers around to ruin the movie. I wish I could go to a drive-in every time! Maybe I should invest in a lot of land and a projector…driveinmovie2

*Thank you Troy for accompanying me on this adventure.

WOULD I DO IT AGAIN? Absolutely!!! I loved it! Too bad there aren’t many left.

HOW TO DO THIS: Look up local drive-in movie spots. This was South Bay Movie Theater. Double feature showing for $7 per person.
