If you have ever observed first-graders watching a movie, lying down is the prefered viewing method. Elephants are no different, I guess.
Ibby Friday Jun 9 01:51 PM
First-graders? It goes up to eleven, buddy.
Pancake Man Friday Jun 9 04:00 PM
It is hard to lay down and maintain a state of apathy, so high-schoolers tend to avoid the whole situation.
milkfish Friday Jun 9 04:59 PM
None of the drivers seem to have brought a date to the drive-in. What fun is that?
wolf Friday Jun 9 07:59 PM
As far as the elephants go: Where do you hang the speaker? They don't have windows.

UT, just curious, why did you think it was necessary to further explain drive in movies by saying how (in cars)? I **know** I have some company that can personally recall going to the drive in movies. Yes, in a car.
wolf Friday Jun 9 08:19 PM
Kids today have no idea what they are.

Prefered to take the pickup truck and back into the space. Couple lawn chairs and a birds eye view of the groping next door.

We've still got three or four open drive ins here in the KC metro. We typically hit one a couple of times a year. Not too shabby on a nice night, especially now that they all have low power FM transmission of the soundtrack, so you get real good stereo fidelity over the car radio. No more shitty mono tinny ass window speakers to deal with...unless you want to.

The last actual drive-in movie place I saw was in the early 90s and that's because it was scheduled for destruction. The last one I actually went to was late 80s.
Ibby Saturday Jun 10 09:20 AM
I went to one a couple years ago, in Alabama. They still exist, at least some places.

That is a beautiful pic UT. I like the different ways the drivers are relaxing with them. It looks so much different than the pathetic existance of the circus or zoo elephant much more of a partnership.

Oooooh. Those things. I have some but I only vaguely recall what to do with them.

I enjoyed intermission. Remember the little ditty that would play while the screen showed popcorn overflowing a big box? 'Its intermission..la la la la dum dum dum de dum...'

Nobody brought dates because there's no back seat.

Let's all go to the snack bar.

I told my nephew to use elbow grease to get burned food off a pot. He enquired as to where he might find it...

Bubba Blue (Mykelti Williamson): Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sautee it. There's, um, shrimp kebabs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir fried. There's pineapple shrimp and lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich... That's, that's about it.

I've also watched a many a movie from outside the fence too. Then eventually there'd be a whole cut in the fence. They seemed to tolerate it kinda like a farmer and a watermelon patch.

I just got back from Thailand, and playing with my elephants, I must have missed that viewing at the movies, bummer.
