A few of us are planning on having a movie night at the auburn drive-in. we do not have a specified date yet. its going to be on a friday or saturday night.
was curious as to if anyone else was interested in going. let me know what you guys/girls think!
This is one of the last 6 remaining in the state. There are plans to plow it under and build some homes, shops and offices.
Here are the other 5 as a FYI
• Auto Vue Drive-In, Colville
• Blue Fox Drive-In, Oak Harbor
• Rodeo Triplex Drive-In, Port Orchard
• Wheel in Motor Movie, Port Townsend
• Skyline Drive-In, Shelton
there have been talks of it closing for years.... but i was down there a few weeks ago to see movies and everything was business as usual, no signs or talk of closing..... the only way they would pull in more business tho is if they renovated the damn place... half the poles wiring is fried
just created the event for july 28th. gonna have a pre-meet at 7 at the fred meyers to grab snacks and stuff.
public event so rsvp:
I went last Friday and saw Spider man and Men in Black both movies are okay. If you stay for both be ready for a long night. We left the house at 7:15 and got home around 2:00 and I only live about 20 minutes from the theater. As for lowered cars be careful there are some big pot holes in the theater we were in. You can easily see them going in (day light) but at night not so much. The sound for the movie is ran through your AM radio on 650 I believe so the sound quality isn't the best even with my 5.1 surround in the car. I got there early enough to watch the second Men in Black on the DVD in the car and after listing to it via DVD the AM quality from the theater really sucked.
There is nothing like going to a movie with a bucket of chicken and a growler of beer so have fun.
If I ever win the lottery I am 1: going to buy a golf course and 2: Open up a drive in theater that people would want to go to. It could be a big hit if done correctly.
of course I had to take some pictures.
