52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy - Movies

The first movie I saw at a drive in theater was CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG.

The movie came out December of 1968. That would make me 6 years old. It was at the Starlite drive-in in Chubbuck, Idaho which is no longer standing.  It is part of the mall parking lot now.

Brother, sister, and I were all decked out in our jammies in the back of the 1967 Jeepster. I'ts the only time that dad went with us to the movies (that I remember).

When I was in grade school the PTA sold bundles of discounted movie tickets.  There were probably about a dozen or so tickets, one for a matinée each week.  All of us friends in the neighborhood would all go together.  The parents would take turns dropping us off and picking us up.

Some of the movies that I remember from those summers are CALL OF THE WILD, SOUNDER, OLD YELLER,  and WHERE THE RED FERN GROWS (are you sensing a theme here?) 

Last month hubby and I went to DRIVE ANGRY 3D. Got to have me some  Nicolas Cage once in a while.

Thanks to Amy Coffin at We Tree for coming up with this series.
