Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer.  Here’s an idea to add to your end-of-season traditions:  the drive-in movie.  Remember?  The place with playground equipment under the big screen, the smell of popcorn on the breeze, and watching a movie under the night sky.   

There are a few drive-ins remaining.  Surprisingly, some are scattered across the listening area.  Here’s a list from driveintheatre.com
