Thats right, it was jiffy pop, and I had no idea they still made it. I stand corrected. I was thinking everything went to microwave popcorn. How many people still pop by getting out a pan, and doing it on the stove using popcorn our of a jar?
I guess the drive in theaters went for 2 reasons. In Los angeles, the land was too valuable but movies all got Dolby surround sound and the only way to watch a good movie was inside a theater with nice seats and sound system. They also increased and increased the prices, until who in their right mind would pay those prices just to sit in the car.
Besides the drive in was never about watching a good movie, even in Austrailia Chiselray.
