Truly at the Drive-In

It's date night and Truly is at the drive-in movies.

For 32 years we had a drive-in movie theater in Naples.  Actually it was a flea market and drive-in theater.  It's been 6 years or more since it was torn down ... sigh.  The Boys and Girls Club of Naples was built on the site.

I can remember as a teenager piling into someone's car and going to a late show.  $5 for a car load of people - what a deal!   It was so much fun - eating popcorn, drinking large Cokes and watching car windows steam up!  (I wonder what they were doing...)

The little roadster is not truly a Truly car, but I saw it in the parking lot at Michael's one day and just knew it would enjoy this movie too.

(I spent way more time than I had planned composing this collage!)

How about you - any drive-in theaters nearby?

Oh how I miss Drive-in theaters. Sigh!! Last one around here was 18 years ago or so. I miss them.
Wish they would come back.
Great piece by the way!

Good to see the Trulies enjoying themselves as the movies! I can see why this took you a long time. Doing digital collages is totally addicting. I'm 64 now, but when I was a kid, my folks would take me and my sister to the drive-in theater. I never got to go to one with a date, though....

I am smiling. I get a kick out your sense of humor. I remember dates at the drive in when I was young. Now it is too late to stay up. :) Valerie
