Summer is a perfect time to visit the Drive-In Movie Theater and if your lucky enough, there maybe one nearby for your enjoyment (I know I have a couple in the Toronto area).
For today’s Vintage Photo Tuesday we are going to enter the heyday of Drive-In Movie Theaters. So grab your popcorn (or snack of choice) and let the movie begin.
