This film made me so happy! And congratulations to Virgil and his whole eccentric crew for following their mutual passion by keeping this dying art form alive and running. For those of us who grew up going to the drive-in on balmy, summer nights-meeting up with our gang of friends, loading plastic lawn chairs into the back of an old hatchback, hiding someone under our legs in the back seat under a pile of blankets, reciting movie dialogue while perched on the roof of our cars, riding on rusty swing sets during intermission-we we feel the love. It was a simpler time.
I live in Southern California and a few drive-ins still remain. But, most have switched to digital, and yes, you can feel the difference. I hope to one day make it out to Mahoning Drive-In to catch a vintage double feature and soak in the nostalgia. Keep it up, guys!
