Movies in the Park continues at Spring Lake Park Thursday, May 24, presented by the City of Texarkana, Texas Parks and Recreation.Make sure to bring a lawn chair or a blanket to watch the great family movie "Puss in Boots" under the stars beginning at 8 p.m. I have to admit this, I've done this before and it makes for a great family outing, and sort of reminds me of  the old drive-in days. There is something about the ambiance  of being outside watching a movie that brings up some great childhood memories. Remember the 67 Drive-In? It was next to Razorback Stadium. Or how about the Joy Drive-In out in Nash, Texas?

You never had to dress up. You just went as you were since you were going to be viewing the movie from your car. I recall the speakers you attached to your car window, of course that was all before surround sound. If you wanted some popcorn and a hot dog, you just walked to the concession stand located on the lot. Back in those days they had the old double-feature movie, two movies for the price of one.

Back then their were NO cell phones so actually everyone watched the movie with the occasional fogged-up window, but that's a whole different story. Best of all, you could load up as many people in your car and get everyone in for one price. But, if I remember correctly, that eventually changed with the times.

So grab the family and head to Spring lake Park for Movies in the Park on Thursday night. (Concessions available.) For more information call (903) 798-3978.
