We went to this drive-in frequently when I was a kid.  They tore it down and replaced it with a multiplex theater in 1982.  My wife and I still go to drive-ins occasionally, but now we need to drive almost an hour to get to the closest one.


I also miss Gino's fast-food restaurants, which were popular in the 1970s:

I miss our local drive-in theater too.  It closed decades ago.  I would LOVE for my wife and I to go see movies there, that would be so fun.  But the nearest one is a 2 1/2 drive.

When I was a little girl, my mom would somtimes take me to WOOLWORTH'S.  It was a 5 & dime store (precurser to today's Dollar Stores).  Anyway, the place had a small eatery in the middle of the store. It had long counters with the old fashioned round, stool-like seats.  As a treat, I remember my mom would order vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup for the two of us.  Our little outing was very special to me ... something only the two of us shared. The store is long gone and my Mom has been gone almost 15 years now.  But the memory of the place still makes me ... smile.  Smile

     Ah, yes.....Woolworth's, Kresgees, Neisner's, and the one nearest to us, a few doors north of the Dreamland, Scott's. Five and ten stores were cool.

the local drive-in movie theater is actually on top of an old grocery store that hasn't re-opened since Katrina. TongueOut Once a month, they'll play a movie on top of there and admission is actually free since it's a public service. Cheers

I grew up in Cleburne,Texas and I miss several things no longer there:

Duke and Ayres....a fabulour two-story Five and Dime where we literally spend hours of our childhood

The City News Stand....they carried all the best and most recent comics

Kitchens Bakery....they made petit fours that were so scruptious that they melted in your mouth; I can close my eyes and still taste the vanilla

The Esquire Drive-In....spent many a Friday night there in the back of the pick-up; we saw all of Clint Eastwood's spaghetti westerns there

Tizer Ice was my favourite drink EVER. It always tasted cold even when you hadn't put it the refrigerator. They stopped making it, I think because it didn't sell too well and because it had some weird chemical in it, but I still would've drank it.

I miss record stores in general, but particularly Tower Records. I was fortunate enough to have one open in my home town (Paramus, NJ) in the '80s and were the ultimate record store for the hardcore collector/geek. Most "mall" record stores might have the latest release by a certain band and maybe a best-of collection, but Tower would have every single thing they ever released, including CD singles, imports, live discs, etc., etc.... If they didn't stock it, it didn't exist.

In the early 90s I worked @ the Kmart next door to Tower and spent every lunch hour there poring through the stacks of CDs. I was there so much that people assumed I worked there and started asking me where to find such-and-such a CD.

Video Power. It was an early 90's video game show.

It was the first time I saw Splatter-house TG-16. I was an instant fan.

I miss the fields, orchards, and forest out by my father's house.  Spent hours out there with one of the dogs (Topper or Bozo), a backback with some water and a container or two for gathering berries in the right seasons, and my bb gun or .22.  In the summer there would be these huge grasshoppers along the fields that I'd use the bb gun again. 

I miss the neighborhood around my mom's house.  We spent our summers playing war with plastic guns, running through fields, crawling along hedgerows, and sneaking behind cars.  I knew every tree, every fence and hedge (and every hole through a fence), and every shed in that neighborhood.

I miss arcades too but not as much as some might.. I do have a classic arcade downtown I can go to, and I have my own mini-arcade in my house and tons of old games on my computer.  So I'm generally happy with that.
Drive-ins I also miss.  Got 2 or 3 still in Oregon but they're only seasonal and play only new stuff.
From what I recall Mr. Steak was rather good back in the day.

And I miss getting these from the store:
