What better way to celebrate the nation's 75th anniversary of the drive-in movie theater than to honor the STARLIGHT SIX DRIVE-IN? Once considered a dinosaur, the drive-in has undergone a mild renaissance in recent years as fans have grown weary of overpriced tickets, mall parking and smaller screens. The Starlight not only alleviates all of these headaches, but also offers a variety of movie-watching opportunities, best exemplified in the summer-standout events Monster Bash and Drive-Invasion.

You can see the major Hollywood releases at practically any neighborhood cineplex, but will you enjoy the experience? At a time of high ticket prices and audience misbehavior, going to the movies can be more trouble than just waiting a few months for the DVD release. STARLIGHT SIX DRIVE-IN nearly always guarantees a joyous communal experience, no matter whom you’re with, what snacks you’re eating or whether you’re watching Pirates of the Caribbean or Grindhouse. (Honorable mention: For technical excellence, check out Fernbank’s IMAX screen at least once.) less...
