There's a First Time For Everything
Two firsts in one:
1. I went to the drive in for the very first time last night.
2. The picture has notes on it!
Yes, we went to the drive in Saturday night. We borrowed a van and loaded up our two and Chef Jr's best friend in the back seat to go see "Race To Witch Mountain." It was a double feature, but let's be honest, does "Confessions of a Shopaholic" sound like a good follow up to the movie we chose? We didn't think so, either.
We arrived early and Ed parked us right behind the projection building and in front of the snack bar. Once situated, we grabbed some dinner-pizza for the kids, a corn dog for me and a sausage dog for Ed, some popcorn and drinks. It reminded me of years ago trips to the roller and ice rinks with what snacks were available. Just before show time, we grabbed another drink and the best movie candy ever, Raisinettes.
I have to say that Race to Witch Mountain was a good follow up to Escape and Return. It was suspenseful and good characterizations and had us on the edge of our seats at a few points. Even better, the original stars, Kim Richards and Iake Eissenmann had roles in this one.
It was rather pleasant to see a movie in this manner, and trust me-we will go back.
Maybe even as soon as this Friday night.
