Bumblebee's Drive-In Movie Theatre

Imagine its the summer of 09', and you go to check out debut of Transformers 2 at the local Drive-In in your new Camaro-And none other than Bumblebee is steadily holding the screen....And you know you've got the best "seats" in the house!

(Note-I switched out orig pic with smaller, easier viewing pic.....Also, attached 2 new ones! One is abandoned Drive-In, and second is same Drive-In with some PSing. Update-Cashier hired....BB Theatre is open for business!)

Thanks! While working on it, I got to thinking how cool it would be if GM got together with Paramount to host the actual debut of movie at a Drive-In somewhere, and invite everyone who has the new Camaro, or an older one. What a sight that would be.

Yes, it would be great to see this movie in particular behind the wheel of a new Camaro! Sorry to hear you haven't gotten chance to visit a Drive-In yet. Drive-In's are a dying breed, for sure. Where I live, in Twin Cities, there were probably 10 or so in greater metro area back in the 70's. Now, there's only one, I believe.....Lost Americana, for sure. If you go to the Photobucket or Flickr sites, and type in "Drive-In Theatre", some great pics pop up of abandoned drive-ins. I may try to PS one from abandoned to reopened with Bumblebee's logo.....Here's another filtered version. Have a great day!

VERY nice photoshop there..the only thing with the camaro though is that your friends can't fit in the trunk to avoid paying at the drive-in!

Thanks Phantom! Its not quite up to your awesome Chops, but was fun doing! I'd love to see your PS version of same idea. Your pics are always top-notch!

I just added another one at top, of PS'd abandoned Drive-In, along with original (after a PS auto adjust, which made it much lighter)....Here's the untouched version. Something very nostalgic about those old Drive-Ins!

Thanks! I did a prior PS of same Camaro in Drive-In scene, and after seeing photos of the giant autobot BB at Chicago Auto Show, got the idea! Gotta love those old Drive-Ins!

Where is that abandoned Theater? I see you are from MN. I have lived in MN all my life up until 3 weeks ago. I used to go to the Drive in Theater just north of Litchfield MN, and I would LOVE to go there again in a New Camaro to watch Transformers!

Yeah those were great days. The only time you could have a rye and coke and watch a movie on a big screen. Man, I had some good times at the drive in. If you know what I mean! HEHE They used to think my car was a low rider with hydraulics on!

Hi,
Looks like you picked a great place to move! (back here in the summer though?) Great to hear from a fellow Minnesotan. Actually, I found this photo on the Flickr photo-sharing site, and it is an abandoned building somewhere in Texas. Is that theatre still open in Litchfield? I went to a few in the northern metro as a young person, but now believe the only metro area one (excluding Litchfield, which is out a ways west of Delano, of course) is in Cottage Grove.

Would be great for sure to see T2 at Drive-In in new Camaro! Hope you enjoy South Florida! We've vacationed in Fort Myers/Sanibel/Captiva and that's a great area!

I do beleive that theatre in litchfield is still open. I know I was there a year or two ago, so I think it should still be open

And yes, I did pick a great place to move! I heard from the family it is snowing and cold, like normal back in the land of 10,000 lakes, I made sure to inform them that it was as the Floridians consider chilly here the past day or two with highs only in the mid-upper 60's The parents and my younger sister are all comming down to their second home in Cape Coral the first week of March for a week or two though, so at least they will get a little break from it all. I am moved down here permanently though, so no comming back to MN in the summers. I am used to the hot/humid summers back home, but I have a feeling the summer's here are going to be brutal Oh well, worth it for not having to deal with snow anymore.

And as an added bonus, you can drive that new Camaro year round without subjecting it to the road salt/adverse elements here in Minnesota! My ulitimate goal is to have mine as second car, and store it from mid-November to late April, if possible. It almost seems criminal to drive such a nice car in our winter driving conditions.

You sure won't miss the winters...lol. Hope you're able to post some photos of new Camaro once you get it, with some nice Florida backdrops!
