The last Drive In closed near my home in Joplin Missouri closed in 1994 or 1995. I was shocked when I got to Florida and there were still Drive In's! That's the advantage of Florida though, the weather rarely gets bad enough they need to close.
They've reopened a Drive In near Joplin Missouri, but it's strictly a family movie place. The one here will show anything.
While some movies should be seen in a state of the art theater, others are best seen old school.
It was great fun to watch "The Cabin the Woods" under the stars.
The Silvermoon Drive In even did a classic movie series with free admission. "Christine" was just one of the movies they showed. It's a horror fans dream to watch these in this format!
Here are some pics I took at the Silvermoon Drive In, enjoy!
|It does have a horror movie vibe to it.|
|I'm all for nostalgia, but we used my car radio for sound.|
|Almost show time.|
