THE ROCKVILLE DRIVE-IN!!! That was one of the most treasured aspects of my childhood. My family lived in the neighborhood of Montgomery Square (near the intersection of Montrose and Seven Locks), and going to see a movie or two at the Rockville Drive-In was always a big occasion. Dad would pop a big pot of popcorn, dump it in a brown paper grocery bag (usually from Giant), then we’d all pile into the white Oldsmobile stationwagon and go. The first time I saw my favorite movie of all time, “2001: A Space Odyssey,” was at the Rockville Drive-In. It had a terrific playground, plus a great outdoor seating area in front of the concession stand. Such a shame that cool old drive-ins like that are such an endangered species.

I went my whole boyhood never going to the Rockville Drive-In. When I was seventeen, I figured it could have good date potential. Alas, the week I got my driver’s license in the summer of 1981, it closed forever.
