Have You Ever Gone To See A Drive-In Movie?

The drive-in movie theater conjures up all kinds of romantic ideas of date night and steamy make-out sessions in old-timey cars. I was lucky enough to grow up in a town with a drive-in, and my Summer weekends were full of two-for-the-price-of-one screenings, huge tubs of popcorn and extra-large Dr Peppers, and lots of family-friendly movies under the stars. I can still remember seeing the original Planet of the Apes at the drive-in in Napoleon, Ohio.

Drive-ins are definitely still out there; this site has a pretty comprehensive list. There are about three within an hour or so drive of Kalamazoo. But in these modern times with Netflix, iTunes, and OnDemand, I'm wondering if people are still going — or if you've ever even had the chance?
