Your summer night would be perfect if you have a nice drive-in and it was one of the most common activities people would take part in back in the days. However, these trends have been lost in time and you would not see many drive-ins these days. Instead of searching for a drive-in theater, this grandmother from Ohio decided to transform her backyard into a vintage style drive-in theater.
Sherry Pratt is 49 and is a grandmother of 6. She decided to do something wonderful for the kids when they come home for a summer break. She was searching on Amazon when she came across a movie projector and decided to go ahead with the idea of a drive-in theater. She made cars out of the little boxes available and made it a wonderful experience for the kids. She wanted the kids to have nice memories from their summer break. Her niece posted a photo of the entire arrangement and the internet went gaga over the tweet. Feel free to share these photos with your near and dear ones.
“I was scrolling on Amazon one night and saw these movie projectors and it hit me,” she said. “I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be fun to have an outdoor movie night?’ So I made these cars out of these little boxes for them. My son is a graphic designer, so I had him make the license plates with their names. Things just kept popping in my head to make it like a real drive-in. We just invited anybody who could make it. I think we had 12 children there.”
She painted cardboard boxes to create the “cars” and even created a snack stand!
“I just like to build memories for them so they can remember as we get older,” she said. “Our family means a lot to us and we try to do things with the kids. That’s what I like to do best.”
Her niece, Jessie, posted photos on Twitter; her tweets have since gone viral.
My aunt made a "drive-in" for all the kids in the family and this is exactly how extra I want to be when I'm older pic.twitter.com/gN7mjszRcc
