Yes, Moberly does have a drive-in theater. We saw it yesterday, the Mrs. and I drove over there. The drive-in theater shares the property it's on with the inside sit-down theater. That is very cool because I love drive-in theaters! We did the Wal*Mart test: if we approve of the Wal*Mart shoppers, we generally will be able ta live in that locale. The result? Moberly Wal*Mart shoppers passed the elkotronics and Mrs. elkotronics informal livability-of-an-area test.


Thanks for the below, padre!

I keep hearing that drive-in theatres and record players are making a comeback. Now if only Taco Bell would bring back the Bell Burger.

Did you know that the founder of Taco Bell, Glen Bell, started with a hotdog and hamburger stand and got the idea for selling tacos while he was parked in the parking lot of the very first McDonalds in California ?

No I didn't. But I lived for a brief period of time in the 70s half a block behind that McDonalds which by then was a music store.
