Does anyone remember their first drive-in movie as a kid?

The first movie I saw at a drive-in was an Elvis movie...Love Me Tender...I think.  I was five or six and after the excitement of the big screen, all my brother and I wanted to do was run around and play on the swings and slide!  I think we saw all the Elvis movies at the drive-in.  Great memories!  How about you?

What a fun topic!

 

Ours was "The Days of Wine and Roses". What I remember is what most who replied remember; we kids having a great time playing and eating way too much not usually allowed food.

 

But I also remember Mom and the "Aunts" (real and designated 😉 sobbing their hearts out while having imbibed too much of the title beverage.

 

The men were somewhere across the street from the drive-in doing whatever they did in the early 60s when no sports were being broadcast.

 

Later, when I watched this movie as an adult I realized the significance; for me it is an outstanding movie, well made and performed; it always brings flash-backs to that night; ALWAYS...  

 

Thanks @besslewis for this GREAT topic!

You're welcome!  What a fun memory!  I love the 50's and 60's!!!  There were times when I had a lot of my cousins there and we were a terror, I'm sure!  When I watch the movies from the 60's now, I realize they all had a very deep meaning!

I do, it was Benji 1974!  It was a big deal for us. Our dad even splurged and bought us popcorn and drinks. This almost never happened lol. My goodness, my grandkids are spoiled haha.

I'm not remembering much but it would have been with my folks and it would have been in the mid 1950's.

True Grit with John Wayne.  I don't remember much because I was busy socializing @ the playground with all the other kids who didn't care for westerns. : )

That's funny...seems like all the kids wanted to play instead of watching a boring movie!  I know we drove my parents crazy!!!
