Although drive-in movie theaters were beginning to become relics of the past when I was growing up, I do have a rather clear memory of being taken to see Close Encounters of the Third Kind when I was about three. I haven’t seen the movie since, but there’s one scene that stays with me in that film because it’s been burned into my memory. It might be this one, as that yellow-orange light is part of the memory, but for some reason my 3-year old mind recalls something about this light emanating from somewhere in the kitchen, like an oven or something. Not that I think my 3-year old mind always perceiving things accurately, but still. Here’s the screen shot that I think my child brain had actually stored for thirty-three years now:
What – like a child would think that’s spooky or something? Pssh! All I can say is that my parents must have been short on babysitter change that night.
It’s good old memories of the drive-in movies that made me stop to view thess clips from Archive.org; they’re clips of intermission videos — dancing hot dogs and all. Do they bring back memories for any of you?
