Boat-in?

Remember the joy of watching a movie through the space between the two front seats of the family car? Standing in line for popcorn with a bunch of kids wearing pajamas? Being envious of the people who were smart enough to bring lawn chairs?

Ah, the good old days. Gone, but not—say what?

Yes, drive-ins are back.

Covid-19 has accomplished the impossible, rewound the clock. With the Cineplexes shutdown and social distancing the new watchword, cinema lovers are heading out to the nearest field or empty parking lot.

Granted, the rules are a little different these days. You have to bring your own popcorn and don’t even think about getting out of your car. Still, you’ve got the mega screen in front of you, the starlit sky above, and your nearest and dearest in the car with you—bubble members only, please.

Don’t have a car? No problem.

“When in Rome…”

Or, in this case, Venice…

Who needs a car when you have a gondola?

  1. Well-written!

    Our local baseball team has converted their field to a drive-in movie theater. It won’t help the players, but it might keep the facility going.

    Do you have to bring a jar to pee in if nature calls during the movie?
