A Night at the Drive-In

Disclaimer: I did not take this photo. It was a little difficult for me to take a proper photo in the dark. Not to mention, I was nervous that someone would think I was attempting to record the movie and I didn't want to get fined. This just happens to be the image that most closely resembles the theater I went to and it can be found here.

Last night, I went to my first drive-in movie with my sisters, bro-in-law and cousin. It's something that we've always wanted to do, but never got around to. If you haven't been to one, then I highly recommend it. It's a completely different experience and well worth the drive out to barren country road (like we had to do last night). We went to the drive-in in Sharon, Ontario, which is about 45 minutes outside of Toronto. The movie we saw was The Conjuring. I'm sure you've heard of it ... it's apparently the scariest movie of the summer. To be honest, I wasn't that scared and I feel like the movie was a little bit over hyped. The scariest parts of the movie for me were 1. the creepy guy that drove by us super slow in an old creaky station wagon 2. since you have to listen to the movie through the car radio, after it finished we were driving home but the creepy music was still playing in the car and there was the most amount of creepy static. Not to mention a random person walking towards us in the dark on this long country road, with the music still playing. PRETTY SCARY. But I loved it. So like I said, the drive-in is what made it such a great experience. I also recommend going to see a scary movie, because even if the movie isn't scary ... something around you is bound to frighten you in that moment. So, if you're still looking for something to do during your last weeks of summer, definitely see if you have any drive-ins around you. A lot of them seem to be shutting down (for obvious reasons) technology is a gift and a curse. While you still have a chance, don't miss out on this experience!

  5. We have never had cinemas like that where I live, but just this summer two often sprung out of nowhere. I have been dying to go see a movie in one of them. Thanks for sharing and inspiring to go to one of them ASAP!

  6. I've always wanted to go to a drive in. I don't think we have them out here in Louisiana that I know of. I do know that when I have a home and a big yard, outdoor movie parties will be in full effect. LOL!

    I wanted to see The Conjuring and I've heard rather good things about it. Hopefully I'll get around to seeing it soon.

    1. The conjuring wasn't a bad movie, it was definitely entertaining .. I just wasn't as scared as I thought I would be. But outdoor movie parties sound like such a great idea! All you really need is a projector and extension cord, then you'll be good to go :)
