Lehigh Valley is fortunate to be home to not just one drive-in movie theater, but two: Becky's Drive-in in Berlinsville and Shankweiler's Drive-in in Orefield. Considering there are only 35 drive-ins left in Pennsylvania, I'd say that is pretty unique.

My favorite is Shankweiler's only because I grew up near by. They are America's oldest drive-in, opening in 1934. Usually they are open on weekends starting in April, but their Web site isn't giving their opening dates yet. (Becky's opened last weekend.)

Shankweiler's brings alot of childhood memories to mind. My girlfriend used to live right behind the drive-in and had access to the speakers so we could hear and see the movies from her roof.

We spent many nights hanging out inside the drive-in property as well. We used to load as many kids as we could into my mom's car, fill up on junk food and have a blast. I don't think we ever saw a movie from start to finish. 

Are you planning to head to the drive-in movies this year? If so, I suggest you get there early cause they fill up real quick!
