Unlike the ghosts and 60-year old Spam cans, drive-in movies make people of all ages nostalgic for the 1950s. Relive the sentimental moments of yesteryear with today's Groupon: for $12, you get FM slot admission for one car (a $25 value) at Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In's East 6th Street or Cesar Chavez location in Austin.

Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In is a year-round, boutique drive-in movie venue that flickers proudly thanks to vintage equipment, a quirky concession boat, and a diverse film schedule. Drive-in guests can perpendicularly park their ride and enjoy projected wonders that span the film spectrum, including indie and cult flicks, childhood favorites, and drive-in classics such as E.T., Some Like It Hot, and Clerks. Between cheers and tears, passengers can waltz over to the drive-in's docked dinghy, which supplements each spectacle with candy, soda, and popcorn that pops as frequently as a balloon bouquet in a bee swarm.

Though drive-in "walk-ins" are welcome, making a reservation in advance ensures passengers a parking spot with cinematic sights and sounds. Likewise, although modern SUVs and eco-friendly clown cars are known for carrying large populations, Blue Starlite limits each vehicle to four passengers. And, if clouds start to cry during particularly saddening scenes, the show will be canceled and rescheduled for a later date when the weather has pulled itself together.

Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In

After restoring a cluster of vintage theater speakers that he bought on eBay, Josh Frank used them to launch Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In in the middle of Texas' capital city. At the retro cinematic establishment, Frank and his staff beckon moviegoers to cool their car or jetpack engines while immersing themselves in feel-good flicks, many of which are time-tested pop-culture favorites such as E.T. and The Karate Kid. Two car hostesses stay on-hand to add to the nostalgic ambience, whisking concessions such as hot dogs, nachos, and pretzels to trays perched in open car windows or inside the mouths of especially hungry visitors.

Bring comfy chairs and/or enough blankets to be comfortable on a rocky floor. Otherwise, great drive in.
