Google Doodle Celebrates Drive-In Movie Theatres!

I know it’s a little late in the day to bring this up, but, did anyone notice that cool-ass Google Doodle that’s been up all day today? And if you noticed it, did you take the time to actually click on it too?

Well, just in case you missed it, here again for your viewing pleasure is Google’s salute to the 79th birthday of the drive-in theatre! Wow…who knew they had drive-ins in the 1930’s? Crazy, huh?

Anyway, enjoy the clip below and if you happen to be lucky enough to live near a drive-in, I command you to head over there and get your outdoor movie theatre on! I grew up near the late, great Skyview drive-in in Santa Cruz and have many tales to tell of my adventures there, none of them suitable for a family blog, but all of them as vivid and wonderful as drive-in culture itself! Oh, the memories…

Happy 79th birthday drive-ins…seriously, you don’t look a day over 50 to me!

  1. Reblogged this on Stay-at-home-Yeti and commented:

    Sorry for double blogging the same story, but, this was too cool not to share with you guys here, too. Enjoy!

  2. Nice clip! I’ve only been to a drive-in once with my family. I thought it was pretty cool and it’d be nice to take my kiddo when he’s a bit older. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Me too! We are dying to take Greta to a drive-in one of these days. I think you’re in the L.A. area too, aren’t you? If so, you might wanna check out the Mission Tiki Drive-In in Montclair. We haven’t been there yet either, but, I hear it’s really fun!
