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.

    5. 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? =)
