    For an adult probably not all that exciting.

    They were dead by the time I was an adult.

    Cable television and HBO and VCR's killed them.
    Ditto. Loved drive in movies when I was in high school. Wish that they'd come back...
    I dunno, I'm not sure if I want to see The Groove Tube or Cheech and Chong (Up in Smoke) again...but it was fun at the time.

    Last drive-in theater I went to was on my 21st birthday in 1982 as a surprise gift by my college roommate. It was porno drive-in, just off I-80 between Davis and Sacramento. Oddly enough, there was a brief span along the freeway were you could get a pretty clear glimpse of the screen and see all the action. It was pretty obvious...I can't imagine something like that happening today.

    One thing I remember about that night very vividly was the drive back home in his little MG where I confessed that I was not big on birthdays, as it was always a reminder of getting older and that someday before I knew what happened, I would be an old man. I just turned 60 last month. So, almost there.

    The Ruskin Family Drive-In Theatre, with over 50 years of continuous service to the Ruskin and South Hillsborough County, has been a community gathering place since its first movie, “Singing in the Rain” played in 1952.

    We call it the “Last family drive-in” in the U.S.A. because families, dating couples, single parents with children and everyone else young and old can come and visit. We had family values when family values were the rule. We still have family values although by some we’re not considered cool.
