Drive-In Movie Day celebrates the opening of the first “park-in” movie theater in Camden, NJ on June 6, 1933. Park-In Theaters, Inc. charged 25 cents per car and 25 cents per person, not to exceed one dollar. It was advertised as fun for the whole family.
How to Celebrate
To celebrate Drive-In Movie Day, try your best to locate a drive-in theater and take in a movie or double feature with your significant, your family or your friends. If you’ve never gone before, it is a unique experience. I am lucky enough to have two drive-in theaters within thirty minutes of my house and we try to go at least once a year. One of them is Shankweiler’s, the second Drive-in built on April 15, 1934 and the oldest existing Drive-in. Here is a list of drive-in theaters. You could also check out last year’s Google doodle for this day.
To celebrate this day, we selected two energy drink cans. The first is the 2012 DRIVE Me Energy Drink Can from the Russian Federation. On this can there is a speedometer with its needle past 300 km/h (186.4 mph) and a small icon that looks like a gas pump with a plus and minus symbol on it.
The second can is the 1997 The Lost World: Jurassic Park Energy Drink Can from Germany. On this black can is the “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” logo with the words “T-Rex Power-Drink – Something has survived” at the bottom.
Happy Drive-In Movie Day (6/6)!
