A Little Trivia

What was the first drive in movie?

A ten acre site in Camden New Jersey. It was opened by Richard Hollingshead on June 6, 1933. The screen measured 40 by 30 feet and there was room for 400 cars.

Ah...the drive in movies. Gee, I remember going to them every Friday or Saturday night with a car load of friends. Back then they had all night horror movies. We'd bring food, drinks and blankets. The blankets weren't always used for keeping out the cold:) We'd also bring those little coiled do dads that you would have to burn to keep the mosquitoes away.

Man, those were the good ole days!
