Have you ever been to a drive-in movie? There aren't many around these days. When I was a teen though, they were quite popular. The drive-in's peak popularity came in the late 1950s and early 1960s, particularly in rural areas, with some 4,000 drive-ins spread across the United States. Among its advantages was the fact that a family with a baby could take care of their child while watching a movie, while teenagers with access to autos found drive-ins ideal for dates.
I recall certain nights a whole carful of people could get into the movie for $1:00. We packed the car. Or sometimes for a quarter a person. $1:00 sounds cheap, but back then it was a lot of money for the working class.
You hooked the speaker to your window and relaxed.
Ah, the good old days.
