while were on the good old day thoughts
any of you even live close to a drive in theater. I know most are long gone now
the town I for the most part grew up in Sidney Oh. still has there's when I was a kid it was on the edge of town surrounded by farms may the hours I spent there as a little kid then as a teen sneaking in or hiding buddies s in the trunk 🙄 we went up to just a few years ago but one of my sons still goes .
my gosh the memories just driving by the place brings a smile. funny I don't remember the movies from my teen years while their 😍 🤩
any way now its like a small island surrounded by housing and businesses.😥
I am glad the family is trying to keep it going but it has to just be a matter of time before a next generation takes a offer from a local developer.
when my wife and I 1st met there was one ( drive in ) in about every town with in driving distance of 1/2 hr of us but sadly all are long closed except Sidney's
even one that's long closed down also it was about 40 minute drive from sidney and how they got away with it I still wonder it was in the middle of nowhere ( why I guess it managed to get by ) but as a teens we went they showed XXX films and I mean nothing held back the ticket taker would ask are you 18 and every one in the car why yes we are ,,Ok $2.00 each followed by know this we all going to jail together if you lied LOL while smiling at us
but of course drag strips is another old hang out and tons of memories we use have several tracks with in a 1/2 hr or so all gone now lot of hours burned up watching and hanging out even raced some
where we live now their is a small circle track been there for ever LOl they still race and have practice days we can here them on Wednesday practice and Saturday night races spend a lot of time their also when younger
