I have many fond memories of my time as a child in Houston back in the 1960's and one of them was the joy of going to the drive in theater with my family.  Unlike most kids, I didn't like sitting in the car to watch the movie, instead I'd go play on the playground they had set up just under the huge screen.  I can still remember many of the movies I watched while swinging or riding on a teeter-totter. "Flipper", "The Amazing Mr. Lipett" "Robinson Crusoe on Mars" (My dad was a science fiction freak!) and many, many others.  Having a playground at a drive in theater in those days made a lot of sense.  Parents weren't nearly as worried about strangers in those days as we are today and it gave energy-filled kids something to do beside jumping around in the car while mom and dad tried to watch the movie.  But THIS idea is terrible!  Installing a playground in an indoor theater? What could possibly go wrong? Instead of just bugging your parents in the privacy of a car, kids will be bugging everyone in the theater!  Playgrounds were made for outside play, not for the confines of an enclosed theater! What do you think? Read the story here!
