Turn down highway 87 beside City Hall, go a ways, up and down gentle hills, to the outskirts of Mountain View. Watch for the water tower because just a few feet past it is a tiny, graveled, lane full of pot holes, beside a little green sign that says you've reached Theater Lane. Turn right to follow this lane around to a 1950's era drive-in tucked into a somewhat level pasture behind the water tower.
Stone County Drive-In is one of only a few survivors of the almost dying era of movie viewing. The screen is patched and a bit tattered but once it becomes dark enough to project the movie onto it, the tatters don't matter at all.
As more and more families arrived in cars and trucks and put down tail gates and lifted hatches, set out lawn chairs or a blanket, the memories came flooding back of movies watched decades ago from the backseat of a car, or the bed of an old Ford truck. We sat in the truck in comfort; Zach sat on the ground down front with some kids from the car in front. Fireflies, buttered popcorn, and fountain drinks, making new memories remembering times past.
