Then Is Now Podcast Episode 44 – 2021 April Ghouls Drive-In Monster Rama

We’ve discussed Drive-In Theaters in the past, and while many indoor movie theaters have closed down because of Covid-19, the outdoor Drive-In Theater has not only thrived, but is experiencing a resurgence!

This past weekend my wife and I had the good fortune to be able to attend the 2021 April Ghouls Drive-In Monster Rama at the Riverside Drive-In in Vandergrift, Pennsylvania. It was 80s weekend and they played four horror movies all night on Friday and four more on Saturday. There were vendors and a special guest appearance!

I got some great interviews and you’ll hear those in this episode, as well as trailers for the films, and give you a little discussion about them. And there were some other fun things that we got to check out and some things that we didn’t have time for, that I’ll tell you all about!! This episode also ties in with Then Is Now Blog #51, so for pictures and video, check it out:
