The drive-in movie theater ... oh the memories! And no, they weren't dirty ones because I was still a kid. lol ;)
Drive-In Reminiscing I saw this picture going around Facebook - does anyone remember these? Well, as a child of the 60’s and 70’s, I sure do!! In fact, I’m lucky to live near a place where these are still being used – the Drive-In movie theater. The antique looking speakers are still in position at one of the few drive-in theaters we have left in Minnesota.

We went to the drive-in theater in Decorah in the late 70's early 80's. Good times!
Speakers at the drive in....Reminds me of the Judean Drivein!
Baby Boomers know me! Drive-in movies were so much fun!
What is it? ___________________ Today's Quiz: What IS This Contraption Pictured Above: A. Mitt Romney's Heart B. Mitt Romney's Communication System to the Planet Kolob C. Mitt Romney D. Drive-in Movie Speakers _________________________ Answer: Drive-in Movie Speakers Once upon a time Drive-In Movie (outdoor theaters) were attended by millions of people on a weekly basis. They had their heyday in the 1950's, and by the 70's most were gone. Popcorn, candy and soda pop concessions were usually found at the base of huge screens where "creature" movies usually played. "The Creature From the Black Lagoon" and all the "GODZILLA" movies were shown with crackly speakers sounding out bad dialog that no one payed much attention to. Most of us didn't go to "drive-ins" to watch a movie anyway. "Drive-Ins" were where many of us who grew up in the 50's got our 'sex educations'. "First Base-Second Base-Third Base", and if we got really lucky, "HOME-RUN" SEX! When most of us left the "Drive-IN" we usually did so with wet, stained under wear that we washed ourselves because we didn't want our parents knowing what really happened at the "Drive-IN. Too much information? Maybe. But some of our memories are stirred by those old speakers. If you were born after 1970, you probably didn't have a clue as to what that contraption was. Now you know! It's a sex education instrument used by your parents and grand parents. You have computers and virtual games. We had "Drive-INS" that provided direct hands-on training. J.
I saw this picture going around Facebook - does anyone remember these? Well, as a child of the 60’s and 70’s, I sure do!! In fact, I’m lucky to live near a place where these are still being used – the Drive-In movie theater. The antique looking speakers are still in position at one of the few drive-in theaters we have left in Minnesota. I have both past and present memories of going to the drive-in!! I recall the drive-in in my hometown and my best memory, as a teen, was seeing the movie “Halloween.” The movie is where Jamie Lee Curtis first came on to the scene as an actress. “Halloween” was probably the first horror movie I remember seeing at the drive-in theater. It was pretty creepy watching it in the outdoors, where possibly, Michael Myers was stalking our car. Then that eerie music would play in my head and he’d jump in the car at any moment where I’d be his next victim. It could happen…yeah, it REALLY could!! Another hometown drive-in moment was going there for my high school “Senior Skip Day.” The drive-in was the place to be and hang out. Groups from our senior class would overrun that night with shenanigans and, of course, the classic attempt had to be done – a couple of us hid in the trunk to get in without paying. Don’t remember if I volunteered for that or if I was nominated! I’m sure I volunteered. Ha! However, I have no idea what movie was playing that night. Yes, I did eventually get out of the trunk!!!! Now, fast forward, to the fairly present when Mister O and I started bringing our kids to the drive-in. It’s a great nostalgic family night out! We’d pack up the hamburgers and hot dogs then grill from the tailgate before the movie started. We’d load up on snacks and bring out the blankets and pillows to pile in the back of our pick-up where the kids would snuggle in for a three movie extravaganza. We’d make bets on who would fall asleep first. It was usually me or, occasionally, Mister O would reach dreamville before me. Though, I don’t think any of us have ever made it to the beginning of the third movie. My daughter, who is now a young adult, goes to the drive-in with her friends to make her own fun memories. I think that’s pretty cool. Hopefully, you have wonderful memories of the drive-in and you’re lucky enough to make some new ones before the drive-in experience disappears. Feeling reflective? Here are some memorable movies that have well-known drive-in scenes, Grease and Twister. Oh and don’t forget the opening to the Flinstones TV show. Along with your popcorn and, why not more than just “a square of chocolate,” watch my favorite drive-in scene from Grease. Put your smile on, Laurie O Feel free to share a square!
Drive-in movies. Good memories.
Bucket List, Drive, Movie Theater, Movie Theatre, Drive In
drive-in theaters. Never got a chance to go and now they've phased out its on my bucket list for sure
Drive-In Movie Theaters - essentially a large outdoor screen where a film is projected. People park their vehicles and hang a speaker from the inside of their window, and watch. 50 cents a car. Mom would pop corn and make Koolaid and sometimes hot-dogs wrapped in slices of bread, and it was fun.
Drive-in movie theater with Mom and Dad (and with supper from Max's Chicken-in-a-Box)
Drive-in movie theater Still one of my favorite things to do!

Flash Cubes, Camera, Flash Bulbs, Memory Lane, Baby Boomer, Flashcubes Remember
Flashcubes - remember the smell after you used them? Can always remember it was a Christmas shopping ritual to make sure you bought BOTH rolls of film AND enough flash cubes to match the number of photos on the roll(s) of film.
Pinched this from the facebook group 70's and 80's good ole Flashcubes, could make or break your photo memories.
Flashcubes - You slid a lever to spin the flash after EACH picture. 4 flashes on each bulb then that was it, you had to pop in another flash cube. No cube? No flash! I can still remember the smell they made after you flashed one.
Flashcubes - remember the smell after you used them? -- we used to put them on earrings!
Flashcubes - remember the smell after you used them? my first camera used these>>>
Flash Cubes. Old school. Sometimes you got a "dud". Dinosaur age for sure.
On "clipsait" les flashes sur l'appareil photo. Un cube = 4 flashes!

Drive-in Movie Theater Speaker *, remember these? if you ever really did watch the movie lol.
Drive-in Movie Theater Speaker *, remember these? You could barely hear what they were saying.
Drive-in Movie Theater Speaker *, remember these? You would clip them on your car window! 😊
Drive-in Movie Theater Speaker These were always fun, except when you had someone in the car who kept talking and you couldn't hear the movie. I never did that, but Norma Ilene from BINGO would, and sometimes it got to be so much I had to get out of the car and stomp around a little for her to get the point. I never talked through the entire movie, though, I wouldn't do that....Nothing more annoying that some chowder head who doesn't know when to shut it...
DRIVE-IN MOVIE SPEAKER ~ YOU PROP IT ON YOUR ROLLED DOWN CAR WINDOW / OH. THE MEMORIES
Drive-in Movie Theater Speaker *, remember these? wow how I miss those times!

Drive, Drive In
A & W Root Beer stand, with car hops that brought your food out on a tray and placed it on your car window. Perfect for summer weather.
drive - in restaurants with carhops. Mom used to take us to Sydney's Drive-In in Woflin Village in Amarillo when we were kids in the fifties. Dad would take us to A Rootbeer stand for root beer floats. And this is why I go to Sonic as often as possible!
I remember going to the A&W for a Baby Burger and Root Beer Float in the 70's....rolling around in the back of the station wagon with my brother & sister. Sometimes Mom would get Dad to buy a jug of Root Beer to take home. We'd chug it right from the bottle. Good Times!!
At the Drive-In by Dusty_73, via Flickr Carhops took your order at your car then brought it to you on a tray like this that hung on your car window. I LOVED these. Those were the days... sigh... and those A Root Beer Floats!

We had to push the buttons on our car radio.
Button Car, Childhood Memories, 2Nd Button
push button car radio I could get one AM radio station clearly on my little Falcon convertible. It was local. No cool music. So I listened to a great deal of fuzz for the sake of tunes.
Video killed the Radio star! Or not? Check for the best industrial style TV & Radios. More sugestions at http://vintageindustrialstyle.com/
2nd button was KIXZ, Amarillo and the last button on the right was set to KOMA, OKC. Those were the 2 I needed as a kid!
Push button car radio. I had one in my Gremlin. AM only. Eventually, I upgraded to AM/FM cassette. So cool.

Teeter totter, bread & water, wash your face in dirty water.
See-saws or teeter -totters on the school playground
my favorite thing on the playground
See-Saw Childhood 1980s - 1990s
There's a new playground at Zachary's school. It looks exactly like a typical playground found in any park in 2010 in the USA. It's all plastic. And he is not allowed to play on it. It's too dangerous. Only 3rd - 5th graders are allowed on it. If younger kids play on it they may bruise their elbows or skin their knees or something horrific like that. Please. I wish my kids knew the joys of an old school playground. You know, the ones we grew up on. Threw up on. Cracked open our heads and knocked out our teeth on. The goldmine of all playground equipment was the merry -go -round. It was especially fun if recess came right after lunch. Who didn't enjoy jumping off the seesaw as it lowered and watching their partner slam to the ground, nearly breaking their tailbone. I busted my lip open on one of these. What fond memories. I miss this most of all. The metal slide. It was always strategically placed in the sun where you could go careening down at 100 mph leaving a legacy of melted skin behind. And my kids will never know these joys. Perhaps I'll let them ride their bikes without a helmet on. If they survive, they may get a small taste of what it was once like.
Metal Jacks and Ball Many,many, many, hours playing with these "things" I can still feel the flipping and gathering!
Childhood Memories, Rose Hip, Rosehip, Vintage Jacks, Childhood Games
Jacks! (Do you remember stepping on them too? ~ OUCH) I adored playing Jacks ( Pick-up-Sticks). Probably first sign of OCD. http://www.etsy.com/listing/83602067/vintage-jacks-and-ball-game-jaxs-set-12?ref=sr_gallery_37_search_submit=_search_query=jacks_order=most_relevant_ship_to=ZZ_view_type=gallery_noautofacet=1_search_type=vintage_facet=vintage%2Ftoy
Jacks! They were metal and came in a drawstring bag with a red rubber ball, but we liked using a golf ball too. We played during school recesses, at home, inside on the kitchen floor, outside on the sidewalk, and took them with us wherever we went. Taps, double taps, bounce no bounce, and round the world were just a few of the names.
We would play Jacks for hours on the floor or even the cement in the driveway or playground. I can't believe how good I used to be at this game when I was a kid. Pat Schwab
We loved to play jacks but always used a super ball. Those red spongy things were useless. :-)
I would sit on the kitchen floor and play for long periods. They looked just like this
Jacks.....I was excited to find vintage jacks game at a yard sale recently.
Jacks! Loved to play jacks...my Mom was really good at this.. :)

Memories Of A Loved One, Childhood Memories, Growing Up, Grandma S Vanity, Mom, My Sister
Wow...we had one too! I remember Mom put it in my room, although I didn't know what to do with it at age 7. From a previous post it said to be from a Waterfall bedroom set from the 1930s.
My grandma had one of these..memories! .... My mom & dad had bedroom suite with dresser like this, have no idea who ended up with it. . . .
This looks identical to the one my sister and I had, until my mom was going to sell it and I shattered the mirror!
My mom had one of these when were little. My sisters and I would stand in front of the mirror and make stupid faces at each other, dance, and act silly, until mom would kick us out of their bedroom and make us go outside to play.
I have the whole bedroom set, mine is in very good shape, better than this one. I used to sit on the stool and put on my makeup. It was my Mom and Dad's
My mom and sister had lovely dressing tables with antigue gold trim, and my sisters had a skirt! Mom ahd all her perfume there...Joy, Intimate, and more with crystal perfume bottles, so girly!
my grandmothers bedroom set looked just like this! Now my mom has it, soooo pretty
This was part of a three piece bedroom suit my parents had when I was growing up.
this brings back memories, my sister and I shared one of these growing up.
These were fun.
