Looking for a relatively inexpensive night out with the family? Then head over to Madison Avenue and hit the Oakley Drive-In. Although the box office has been taken over by Showcase Cinemas, I think they are still independent – (I think this because they don’t honor any Showcase vouchers or gift certificates). The box office prices have steadily increased, but since it is a drive-in you can bring your own food and beverages with you, which with my family usually costs more than admission. Make sure you have a good car battery however, since you no longer put the speaker in the window, you just tune to 90.1 on your FM dial. This definitely improves the experience as you no longer are listening to a movie through a small mono speaker and you could even bring you boom box along if you want. The double feature (which usually contains at least one ‘family friendly’ first run feature) starts at dusk, and then they repeat the movies – at least the first movie – I think both but I’ve never stayed that late.
