Drive-in Drive

Last night, Will, Christina and I headed south to Harpersville, Al. to see a movie. Yes, it's more than 30 miles away, down the infamously clogged Hwy. 280 and in the absolute middle of nowhere. And, yes, we have a perfectly good fully digital theater only a few miles down the road from us.

So why Harpersville? To see "Cars." In a place where they don't mind screaming kids. In fact, this theater we visited loves screaming kids, barking dogs, and we brought our own food and drinks. And it only cost us $10 a car load.

Yep. Drive-in. We saw the movie "Cars" at a drive-in. Sure, the picture was scratchy and dim at times, the audio was not great (though the new subwoofer in the car really helped), and the big trucks passing on the highway just feet away were distracting. But it was, in my opinion, the perfect way to see that movie. I highly recommend it.

Great movie, btw. Will wore one of his many car outfits. This one especially fit the occasion since it had a tow truck on it.

Oh, very nice. I'm envious.

There are a few drive-ins in the greater H'ville area, and I keep meaning to go sometime, but general laziness precludes it.
