Southington drive-in to feature themed 50s shows (Record-Journal)
When the popularity of drive-in movie theaters peaked, it was a time of roaring engines, greased hair and poodle skirts, as moviegoers took their hot rods to a see a show under the stars. In an effort to revive some of the historic nostalgia, organizers of the town-operated drive-in theater have planned a themed weekend, with "American Graffiti" on July 22 and "Grease" on July 23.
Victoria Triano said she and fellow Rotarians who are hosting the "Grease" night are excited. She wouldn't say exactly what her outfit would be. "It's a time to have fun and raise a little money, which then goes to help out Southington," Triano said of the Southington Rotary Club fundraiser. "I think it's wonderful that we have this in town." - more
