Popcorn in a Parking Lot

Back in the day drive-in-movie theaters were the thing to do……. at least I’ve been told. I’ve seen them in movies and heard about it from family who have been to them but I had never been to one…..until yesterday. We heard about it through friends as way to get out of the house and catch a new release. We went to a theater in South San Jose and to no surprise the parking lot — if you can call it that — was packed with cars. We backed in and parked in front of screen number five to watch “War with Grandpa.” It was a bit chilly but not too cold. In fact, we watched and enjoyed dinner with popcorn from the trunk of our SUV with blankets. The kids enjoyed the experience and my wife and I both agreed that it would be something we should do again. Just another example that while we have unremarkable times that we can still have new experiences that can make for some remarkable memories. And yes, the movie was good.
