MUST DRIVE IN
Remember when your parents put you in your pyjamas, packed you in the station wagon and took you to the drive-in movies? You watched wide-eyed from the back seat until you fell asleep. In those days, the speakers that hung from your car window squawked and crackled, but the popcorn was always good. Fast forward, to the Mustang Drive-In, a new generation of summer evening fun on a giant outdoor screen. Check out the movie listings that new owners Dawn Laing and Drew Downs are screening this summer – from double features, must-see movies, an indie music festival to good old standbys.
