This slice-of-life comedy both documents and satirizes small town life in a rural Texas town where the only entertainment in the day is the roller rink and at night the local drive-in. Hosting a cross-section of the town's population, the drive-in comes to life at night - parents show up with their kids in tow, teenage paramours arrive with their dates, and the local gangs fuel their rivalry - under the gigantic screen and at the snack bar. The film playing is a '70s staple: the disaster movie. Tension builds on the screen and also among the patrons. Director Rod Amateau, producer/director of legendary television series "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show" and "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis," is no stranger to comedy, and this off-beat, little-known film (with a lesser-known cast) is a hilarious flashback to the seventies. Newly remastered.

I love this movie. It's dated but so am I! I first saw this movie when I was in elementary school and I have often thought about it over the years. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Django
I first saw "Drive-In" in the 1970s on HBO. I thought it was one of the funniest movies for its time. It's a campy, cult film. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Richard F.
Great campy 70's fun. I love drive in movies so this has a soft spot in my heart. But the DVD has no extras.. BummerPublished 2 months ago by The joker 308

I was a movie projectionist in a small Texas town in 1976, and remember showing this movie. They were fond memories, so I ordered a copy to see if it was as good as I remembered. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
I've loved this movie since the first time I saw it in a drive in as there is a movie inside the movie, a compilation of every disaster movie ever made. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Paul Kataja
I like old B-movies and 70s drive-in flicks, so I checked this rarity out. It's 90 minutes I'll never get back (as the expression goes). Read morePublished 6 months ago by AnotherMusicExpert
