John Hanlon Remembers Drive-Ins

posted by Nell Minow

I have some great memories of drive-ins and never miss a chance to visit Disney World’s Sci-Fi Drive-In Restaurant.  So I got a special kick out of seeing my friend and fellow critic John Hanlon interviewed about his drive-in memories.  He said,

In 2014, part of the appeal of drive-in is the nostalgic aspect and the idea that you and your friends and loved ones can watch several first-run movies at a much cheaper price there than you would pay at a regular theater. Drive-ins are an example of classic Americana that can’t and shouldn’t be replaced in the American consciousness.

Another appeal of drive-ins is the atmosphere. At the drive-in, viewers can sit back, relax and watch films in an environment they are accustomed to. Viewers get the experience of watching first-run movies in their own vehicles (or outdoors). In a theater, you could be forced to cram into a small seat or sit near people who are constantly on the phone. In the car, the environment is defined by you and the people you choose to watch the movies with.

Be sure to check out the entire interview.
