CLICK-> Drive In #9 [an error occurred while processing this directive] I liked the interesting shape of the ticket booth with the wide sign flying above it. So I set my camera on the ground to see what it would look like. At this place it takes two people to run the booth. Who knows why they put the window on the front of the booth, rather than on the side where the cars drive by. It looks cool though. The employee standing in front said he's into football. I told him I was into drive-ins and photographing them. So he looked at me like I was sorta crazy as I walked back out the gate onto the front lawn. Ha ha, I don't blame him. He said he'd check out his photo here on UltimateGTO.com . Maybe he'll leave a comment in the "Comments" section, below?
CLICK-> Drive In #9 [an error occurred while processing this directive] After you purchase your tickets, it's time to find a good location to park. But be courteous to others and mind the vintage sign. Turn Off Lights!
CLICK-> Drive In #9 [an error occurred while processing this directive] Hummm... Where should I park? Park up by the screen so I get a good view of the movie? Park by the snack bar for a short stumble in the dark from my car to get more candy. Park in the back to make out?
CLICK-> Drive In #9 [an error occurred while processing this directive] The Pontiac engine is rumbling, slowly purring at 600 RPM. Up ahead, each of the drive-in rows are marked with these rare lighted markers. Cool!
CLICK-> Drive In #9 [an error occurred while processing this directive] They are not all straight, but they help you find your way back to your car after the movie starts in the dark. Why are the poles in drive-ins never straight? Ask the dummies who back-up their cars in the dark.
CLICK-> Drive In #9 [an error occurred while processing this directive] Let's try row 5, my lucky number.
CLICK-> Drive In #9 [an error occurred while processing this directive] Park da Goat! To the right is a separate projection building. It is relatively close to the screen, providing a good clear picture. This place broadcasts the sound in FM stereo. They show trailers and the intermission films in addition to asking trivia questions for snack bar prizes. I spoke with Tony, the guy who runs the place. He's been here 15 years. It was his high school job and he said he just wanted to stick around, to keep the place going for people to enjoy. Nice going, Tony!
CLICK-> Drive In #9 [an error occurred while processing this directive] There is the snack bar. Lots of good food. One thing I appreciated about this building design is the large windows. If you're standing in the building waiting for food to be cooked, you can still see the movie playing through several big windows. They had the movie sound playing in the snack bar too. Outside, this drive-in has the optional window speakers for that vintage experience.
CLICK-> Drive In #9 [an error occurred while processing this directive] Peeking inside the snack bar. Mmmmmm... Mozzerella Stix and Jalapeno Poppers. One to plug you up, the other to loosen you up. Maybe I'll try both! I enjoyed the main feature, "Snakes On A Plane". They thought of a bunch of ways for slithery snakes to attack people on a plane. The premise of this modern B-movie was gory, but in a laughable way. Rating this theater on a five star scale, I'd give them 4 stars for overall appearance/appeal, 4 stars for the snack bar, 5 stars for projection quality & sound, 4 stars for their prices, and 5 stars for their showmanship.

CLICK-> Drive In #10 [an error occurred while processing this directive] Tibbs Drive In (Indianapolis, Indiana): On September 3rd we visited the Tibbs Drive In of Indianapolis. This place is huge. It has 4 screens and holds 1700 cars. They have one massive gravel lot which is divided into 4 screen areas by chainlink fences.
CLICK-> Drive In #10 [an error occurred while processing this directive] One corner of the large concession stand. We visited on "customer appreciation night" during Labor Day weekend. In the photo you can see the mirrored glass on the concession stand. It is reflecting a kid's jumping castle that was in front of the concession stand.
CLICK-> Drive In #10 [an error occurred while processing this directive] The kids were lined up outside the colorful air-filled castle to jump around and have some fun. In the background is one of the four large screens.
CLICK-> Drive In #10 [an error occurred while processing this directive] Neon sign and reflections at sunset.
CLICK-> Drive In #10 [an error occurred while processing this directive] Stay late for the donuts.
CLICK-> Drive In #10 [an error occurred while processing this directive] The largest concession building I have ever seen. They had sweatshirts for sale, very popular on this cool evening heading into Fall.
