Patti Randall: Couldn't we just once see a nice quiet movie where boy meets girl, they have problems which aren't too weird, they fall in love and live happily ever after?…
Canoe Henderson: All right, I'll make you a deal. Well, you go with me to the drive-in Thursday night, and next week I'll take you to one of those happily-ever-after clambakes. Deal?
*That Darn Cat!*. Perf. Hayley Mills and Tom Lowell. 1965. Walt Disney Productions.
TIME: 8:33 PM
PLACE: The Drive-In
SUBJECT: Movie screen
We went to the drive-in this evening for a double feature of “Toy Story 3” and “Shrek Forever After.” I love going because it’s inexpensive to get in ($14 for me and 4 kids), you can bring in your own food and drinks (Dominos pizza and then a candy run to the grocery store next door) and I get to send the kids to the playground before the movie starts and I get me some quiet time! What more could you ask for? The drive-in has two screens and recently the city approved a measure to help tear down an adjacent vacant property, so the drive-in will add a third screen and improvements to the business. It’s nice to see a local company being able to expand in this economy.
