One of my favorite summer evening activities is going to the movies somewhere near Smith Mountain Lake. I am blessed with several special people in my world including my beloved mate. Whether it’s just the 2 of us or a family party, there is just something uniquely thrilling about the big screen.
If you are new to the area or have not tried out one of our local theatres, there are a couple of good ones to choose from. Take your best pal out for the evening…and don’t forget the popcorn.
MAYBERRY DRIVE-IN AND DINER is a real old-time drive-in theatre. You have to take the kids and let them experience the fun of a drive-in. Visit their great website for all the fun details… http://www.mayberrydrivein.com/Home.html.
