Summer Fun

This past week was wonderful and the weekend was just as great. Saturday night, I went to my very first, Starlight Cinema

(At Starlight Cinema)
All last summer, I had been wanting to go to one of these and this year it worked out that I could attend. Basically, it's like a drive-in theater but you bring your camping chairs or blanket, sit on the group and watch the movie. However, in this town they show it at an amphitheater which is located on the river front. They have this giant screen up and you literally watch a movie under the stars (hence the starlight) and with the river breeze blowing. I thought it was really fun. They show a random array of movies and this weekend they played Big Daddy. I'd definitely like to go again! If you've never done something like this, then check your local listings because I know in other areas they have similar things.

I also had the luxury of getting to hang out with some great people this week. It actually feels like summer is finally here! Before this weekend it had rained for almost 9 days straight. How awful is that? Awful!

Lately, there's been a few things that I've wanted to talk about but I'm still debating if I want to. I usually talk about it on twitter so if you're over there tweeting, look me up! @Jmomiller

That looks like so much fun! They closed the last drive-in theater near me. Gotta love summer time when you can do all that fun stuff.

Hooray for Summer!!

That looks so much better than a drive in - no stinky cars! I haven't seen Big Daddy in ages! Funny movie!

We have one of those theaters in KC. I have always wanted to go. It looks like so much fun. We went to a drive in when we lived in UT and it was such a neat experience. Glad you are having a great summer! We are too!

Sounds like a fabulous time!

JMJE said...

That looks really cool. I used to go to a regular drive-in when I was little and it was fun.

Watching a film by starlight? It sounds completely awesome. I don't think we have evening ones where I am but have been to some outdoor plays which were cool.

Candace said...

Looks like so much fun! They do have things like that around here; but I haven't participated for fear of being eaten alive by mosquitoes! They are brutal!

Thanks for stopping by to see me and for the note! I did set up my twitter account at your suggestion the other day..tweeted once...and haven't been back. You can find me @michiamocandace. I will look for you over there sometime. Have a great week! Candace~♥

Krystal said...

I love that idea! :)

JG said...

There was a drive-in just down the street from our house back in OK. We LOVED going in the summer. I miss that a lot.

Jessica said...

okay.. where are you living?? I thought we were close to each other, but I've never heard of that awesome sounding theater and I haven't seen rain in a month and 1/2!

Brittany Ann said...

So fun! I wish we had one of those around here!

You've totally inspired me to make Mr. M go to the outdoor movie our city does every Friday. They call it Friday Fish Fry and a Flick and it's outdoor near the lake. It looks like such a wonderful way to spend the evening.

This looks like so much fun... I am so jealous that we don't have something like this in Memphis where I live. We do have a drive-in though, and until your post, I almost forgot about it :) Now I think I have a good date-night idea for me and the fiance for next weekend! Sweet, sweet summertime! Have a great week!

Bri said...

Goodness I love summer. And this looks like an absolute blast! My friends and I used to go to the drive-in theater, and I loved it. I want to find something similar to what you experienced here - like a "movies in the park" or something.

Q, La, and Gooner said...

Oh wow, that does look like fun! I haven't even been to a drive in! I know that Q wants to go do something like this but now it is WAY too hot! Maybe this fall!?

Ashley said...

That looks like a lot of fun! They just opened a Drive In Theater here in Charlotte that I can't wait to go too!
