Kids these days might never know a drive-in theater.

You know the odd delay/echo sound you here from digital TV's all on the same channel while walking through your house...

That it what walking through a drive-in sounded like.

Now, "Let's all go to the lobby. Let's all go to the lobby. Let's all go to the lobby, to get ourselves a treat."

@nybill I'm told #Sacramento has one drive-in theater still operating. Maybe #Sac is just 30-40 years behind everywhere else.

@lnxw48a1 I know of 2 in this area. (well, within ~30miles)

Not saying drive-in are dead. Just most kids these days have probably never been to one.

@NYbill
It's not the ubiquitous experience it used to be, but much like BBSs, Drive-ins are still around, if you look for them (at least around here). We have at least one across the Mississippi River in Illinois about 45 minutes away.
