Bill Harrison Presents: Under the starry skies
UNDER STARRY SKIES
80 years of Thrills & Chills at Arizona Drive in Movie Theatres
The decade after World War II was unlike any other time in American history. The G.I. Bill helped veterans open businesses, marry, buy houses, and start families. A near frantic quest for freedom and status resulted in the sale of forty-two million automobiles. Not only was the family car a flying-carpet to exotic locations like the supermarket, but it also offered new opportunities to spend time with family.”Kids, put on your pajamas and grab you blankets! We’re going to the drive in theatre tonight!” No muss, no fuss. Mom didn’t have to cook dinner, dad could wear his old shirt, and no babysitter was required. The 1950’s were the golden age of drive-in movies theatres, with thousands of screens across the country. The movies were a bit hazy, and the sound was lousy, but it really didn’t matter, because the whole family was enjoying sinfully delicious food from the concession stand and savoring the fresh evening air. Arizona had more than 50 drive-in movie theatres that have sadly closed over the years. This is a nostalgic presentation that will bring back fond memories of a vastly more innocent time in America.
Dinner will be Taco Casserole, chips& salsa & Churro’s for dessert. BYOB
