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.

It was fun, and you can bring your own food and snacks.

Awesome! What a hidden gem (although they're not trying to be hidden!) more people need to go. We had a blast seeing Pee-Wee's Big Adventute & Hook for my birthday :)
