We pass this drive-in, just off the highway, every time we go to Grandmother's house. "We should try that sometime..." we usually say. Turns out Scott's firm had to rent the place out to finally get us there, but it was as fun and nostalgic as I hoped it would be. The popcorn was burn-your-lips salty, and the air smelled like campfire. Lightning bugs signaled in front of the screen, while trees stood in shadow behind it. We could even see clearly enough to spot a satellite in the sea of stars overhead.
If you live around here and haven't been yet, I highly recommend you add the Harpersville Drive In to your summer list. Playing now: The Lone Ranger and Monsters University. A few friendly tips: bring bug spray and a portable FM radio if you plan to venture from your car. It will also be a late night. Owen was so proud he extended his previous stay-up-late record to 11:03 PM. Good times!
