I was randomly googling drive-ins because I thought they were all gone but to my complete and utter joy, there is one about an hour away from where I live. I first visited back in 2012 and every year since then, with my boyfriend and I saw The Raven with John Cusack. It rained but it didn't really change anything. If you do happen to kill your battery they have people who can help you jump your car! (Free of charge which I think is nice) The staff are nice and helpful. If you are going for a special occasion just ask one of the cashiers for an "Announcement" and they'll read it during intermission! (This time I went on my 23rd birthday!) If you go to see one of the later movies admission is usually about $5. (which is cheap!) If you attend the first movie, (sometimes they have triple features) it's only $9 a person which, around where I live, is what we pay for "student" pricing. Bengie's allows you to bring in outside food, for a fee, but they really make their money off of the concession stand. They do take credit cards at the concession stand (Visa and MasterCard only) but I believe they only take cash for the admission. I feel like the food is kind of expensive, but again, this is how they make money, so I don't mind paying a little extra. (you can buy gifts too. As well as online)
In short, Bengie's drive-In is the coolest place! The traffic to get there for me is worth every minute. It's amazing to have a piece of American culture left in today's society.
