Drive-Ins are still a thing around GTA

They might be a thing from the 50s but believe it or not folks, Drive In theaters still exist and they’re AWESOME!.

Seriously they are a great, unique and affordable date idea. Where else can you watch 2 movies for the price of one from the comfort of your own, car? Kiss your date under the stars and comfort her while laying on the hood of your car while watching Independence Day.

Don’t let the summer pass you by without checking one of these jewels out. It will give you a feeling of how our parents did it.

Here is a list of some drive-ins around the GTA. Fonthill is my favourite.
