Sites of Interest

Drive in Theaters were a part of my growing up in Taylorville, as many movies were seen from my parent's back seat early on, then to my high school years.  Here's a couple of sites I've found to quite interesting.  I didn't know there were four separate drive ins in Danville.  Also be sure and check out the history on the Frisina Drive Inn in Taylorville.  One unique thing about it was the outside seating section in front of the snack bar....and the very large playground down in front of the screen.

If I had but just one cable/satellite channel to pick for viewing, this would be it.
