Only Baby-Boomers Know What These Are. Do You Know?

Before there were iPods, iPhones, Gameboys, and all that other technology that confuses me, we had a great way to get some entertainment:

Drive-in movies.

Gone are the days when you could drive up to watch a movie, enjoy some snacks, and have a relaxing evening. Although if you were parked at the back you knew you weren't there for the movie...if you catch my drift.

But in order to get the full effect of whatever movie was playing, you needed something important...sound.

That's why we had these bad boys:


Drive-in speakers!

You had to hand one of these from the window of your car in order to get sound for the movie, but it was definitely worth it. Remember how high-tech we thought this was??

Now, you have to dial in to a certain radio station in order to get the audio for a drive-in movie (if you can find one, that is.) I guess it makes sense, because car radios are so much more advanced now. But a part of me will always be nostalgic for the old days!
