Hi-

I just wanted to say Thank You for the memories of the Bridgemhampton Drive-In.
I like many other have very fond memories of that wonderful fantasyland for kids.

Anecdote-the screen could be seen from the road and I recall passing by one night as the chase scene and pile up from the Blues Brothers movie was showing-very cool.

I believe my parents started to go every summer Saturday night from the time that it opened. I saw one of the last presentations-Blue Thunder.

Thanks !
