    My first job was picking up at a drive in on the morning after. I was about 14. We'd walk around with cardboard boxes, picking up popcorn boxes, pop cups, bottles etc. We tossed it all onto trach heap and burned it. The further you got to the rear of the theater, the nastier it got, there was articles of feminine hygiene and condoms laying around. I picked those up with a stick, then broke the end off the stick so I would not accidentally grab the wrong end. I got an education in the days when kids were still kids.

    The remains of the theater are still there in a used up post industrial neighborhood.

Positive experience?

    I love, love, love Drive-Ins!! Grew up in Ohio near the second-oldest running Drive-In.

    Holy crap! The last time I saw a drive in was in North Ridgeville, Ohio, I had no idea that place was still open. Movie was a double feature of Krull/Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone.

    We have a Drive-In that does first run movies. Haven't been this year, yet, but usually take the family once or twice a year.
    Flying a jet is no different than riding a bicycle. It's just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes.

    In St. Petersburg, Florida they had a drive-in that offered air conditioning at a small price. You stuck this hose in your window and cool air would blow into your car. It was called the Mustang Drive-In on Park Blvd. Now it is a flea market called the Mustang Flea Market. You can still see the raised rows that pointed your car a little higher.

    About a mile south of where I live now in Apollo Beach, Fl there is a drive-in still operating in Ruskin, Florida.

    I just remember how my butt felt after sitting in the car for three hours or so and can not get myself to go back. Perhaps this is why drive-ins floundered.

    Ive been to 3 of the Ohio ones, plus another in Michigan, and I'll soon be visiting one in MA.

    I once saw "faces of death pt 4" with a hot stripper/college english classmate.

    Yes, the movie was gory and off-putting, yes we made it through the whole thing just to get the certificate.

    Yes, I closed the deal afterwards.

    I have pretty fond memories of drive-ins from when I was a kid in the Tacoma area. There were a bunch of them. Star-Lite, Fife, AutoVue, 112th St, etc.

    There are still a few of them in the area: Valley 6 in Auburn, Rodeo in Bremerton, Skyline near Shelton.

    Back in the days when drive-ins were really popular, cars were freaking huge and a heck of a lot more comfortable. Back then the family had a monstrous boat of an Oldsmobile, thinking about sitting in my tiny car for a double feature is not a very exciting prospect. Unless there's beer. And a doobie.
