Something I'd love to see at a drive-in: on weekends in October, run a series of the classic old monster movies (Frankenstein, Dracula, etc) and have people in monster costumes 'haunt' the drive-in. Scare the bejeebers out of the kids with a monster suddenly popping up in your car's window.

Weedpuller I just drove by the Heights Theater..... They are playing Dracula! If you have not been to the Heights, you are in for a HUGE surprise. No previews, the most beautiful redone 1920's theater with an operating organ that is raised and lowered hydraulically an occasionally you can see a Cartoon before the show! Check it out! on their web site! Drive -ins are the best! I bet 70 percent of children in school have never even been to one. Sad! Thanks for keeping this one open! We owe you our gratitude and can repay you by patronizing both the movies AND the concessions. Love the story!!
