Old-fashioned fun

Randy discovered one of the perks of Ruskin - an old fashioned drive-in! And to our surprise, they show first-run movies. Tonight it's "Captain America: Civil War" and "Jungle Book". I wanted to see both of those, so we went. They even have the old speakers that sit on your car window! 
And they worked just fine, but the drive-in also broadcasts the soundtrack on an FM station and we wanted to keep bugs out of the car, so we went that route. We got a good spot with a clear view  of the old (and surely original) movie screen. 
We arrived early, which gave us plenty of time to get drive-in food: chili-cheese nachos and chili-cheese hot dogs!
I enjoyed the movie, although it wasn't quite as good as I had hoped. During the break between shows we got a small pepperoni pizza to share, then settled in to watch "Jungle Book". But it was 11 pm by then and the movie couldn't hold our attention, so we went home early. I'm just not as young as I used to be!
