Relax, You're at an Intermission in a Drive-In

These days, a good drive-in theater is a relatively rare gem to find. Although many have recently been resurrected and a DIY drive-in movement has even occurred, a drive-in is still often seen through nostalgic eyes rather than considered to be an everyday venue for movie screening. The collection of Drive-In movie ads that is on Internet Archive can bring you back to a time when you could watch a movie from the comfort of your car, visit the snack stand at intermission, and hang speakers from your car window.

Take a peek at some of the films shown during intermission:

  • “Step right this way, folks, for the most extravagant array of refreshment goodies ever assembled under one roof!”
  • “Public Demonstration of Affection } Will Not Be Tolerated Here (‘Nuff Said?)”
  • “If you like hot dogs, you’ll love corn dogs. Everybody does!”
  • The management urges you to go to church on Sunday
  • “Music to the ears of the hungry: the sizzle of a mouthwatering hamburger.”
  • Now go get yourself a snack, refrain from PDA, and visit your place of worship on Sunday.

          Actually, YOU are the dick.

          It’s somewhat surprising that a dick such as you would be here at all, instead of trolling at youtube.

      Actually, these consession stand promos bring back memories of kids gathering there during the intermission and having a lot of social fun, mosting talking loudly with school friends, sometimes we’d actually buy something and that was a treat!

      The drive-in cinema is the perfect movie for young parents, they just take her baby in her car – it bothers nobody – in which cinema you can to? Only in the drive-in movie!

      Or just take your dog to the drive-in cinema, he must not stay at home!

      Why do most cars have speedometers that go up to at least 130 when you legally can’t go that fast on any road? =)
