Drive-in theaters are seeing a boom during the pandemic, mainly due to the fact that regular movie theaters aren't opening up yet.

Unfortunately for me, none of these cool theaters are in El Paso. I mean, we kind of have a drive-in called "Fiesta Drive-In" but aside from one event we held there, it's not really showing regular studio movies, if you know what I mean. If one did open up here, I'd for sure go, and make sure that I followed social distancing guidelines. Going to the movie theater was part of my normal routine. I miss going to the movies, and, even more, I miss that Buzz would pay for my movie ticket and snacks. We had JUST started "BJ's at the Movies"! But I do completely understand the severity of this pandemic and I'm not about to start protesting just because I want to sit in a theater eating popcorn and watch a movie.
