    Default The Semi-fantastic Four and drive-ins

    I took my 7 year old to the drive-in to see the Fantastic Four Saturday night. It was as about as perfect of a night as one could ever hope for to go to the drive-in. It was 65 degrees, low humidity, and every star was visible, slight breeeze also. With that said, after enduring the first movie, "Rebound" I think??, I wasn't completely happy or disappointed with FF. Maybe it was the just being at the drive-in on such a beautiful night, but it was okay, not great, not bad. Of course it's really hard to judge a movie from the drive-in experience, bad SQ and bad PQ. The FM station they run the sound through was really noisy on the high-end, so even with it playing through the Polk components(MMC 6500) and the Phoenix sub sounded sub par. I'll not pass any judgement on the movie until I either see it at a theater or on DVD.

    Just had to say it was really nice to take my 7 yr old son to his first drive-in movie on such a perfect night. There are just so few drive-ins left and it's an all-to-fast fading forum to enjoy a movie at. I grew up going to the drive-ins in Memphis, TN. The Summer Ave drive-in was the BOMB when I was a kid. We would go several times a month and it was just a blast. Not very many people under 30 have even seen a drive-in much less gone to a movie at one. If there's one within driving distance of where you live, I highly suggest you take in a movie at one. It's definitely old school in a good way.

    I saw the first Back to the Future in a drive-in theater. They are fun to go to. Unfortunately, drive-ins, like you said, are rare nowadays......There's only one left near my house (I think).

    closest one to me is about an hour. My old car club use to go every month or so to hang out. Pretty fun.
