    Downsides to drive-in movie theatres
    “...you had to leave your car and walk to the food booth - sometimes a considerable walk and, sometimes, miss part of the movie to do it.

    “...drive-ins have the same type of snacks and stuff without the environment or peace inside of a movie theatre. If you are outside it could be loud, which you would most likely not get inside of a movie theatre. The overall experience of the indoor theatre is better in my opinion.”
