Looking for something fun and green to do this weekend?
How about going to a drive-in movie?
Earth911.org turned me on to this tip yesterday and I thought it was a great idea to pass on. Drive-Ins encourage carpooling, use less energy than conventional theatres, and save can you a trunk load of money as well!
Oh you don’t think there are any drive-in theatres around you? I bet there are.
True, there aren’t 4000+ drive-in theatres that there were in the drive-in hay-days of the 50’s and 60’s, but there are about 530 still operating in the U.S. today.
Drive-Ins.com is the place on the web to find all the drive-in information you need. They have a handy zip code locater that allows you to find all the drive-ins near you.
Drive-In Fun Facts:
- Drive-Ins normally have a reduced ticket price (around $7)
- That price is, in most all cases, for a double feature (or maybe even 3 shows in a night if you’re lucky)
- Concessions are DIRT cheap and oh-so-yummy
- Most drive-ins sell a food pass that can be purchased for around $5, permitting you to bring all the treats you’d like and is good for the entire car load!
Care to share your drive-in experiences (whether they were from the 50’s or from today)?
I think every little step toward living green is an awesome one… but eco-snobbery sucks! My goal is to help newbies learn the most important steps toward living green — individually and collectively. Personally, I strive to have as little impact as possible on Planet Earth while I'm here.
