When in China, check out these drive-ins

Haitian Lovely Home Car Movie logoI just had to share this with you. According to What’s On Xiamen, if you’re in the neighborhood, you might want to “Enjoy private movie time in Xiamen’s drive-in movie theaters”.

The author of that article, Sanmao Lin, clearly has a handle on the appeal of drive-ins. “Drive-in movie theaters are not only a place for family recreation,” he wrote, “but also great for a couple to share romantic times. And unlike normal theaters, you can cuddle and whisper without annoying anyone else in total privacy.”

It turns out that Xiamen, a city of the southeast coast of the People’s Republic of China, has two drive-ins. There’s the Xiajinwan Drive-in Movie Theater, which has a 40-foot screen and space for 100 cars, and the Haitian Aijia Drive-In, with a 60-foot screen and room for 300 cars. I want to see the movie that Google translates as “Fantasy Flying Piano,” apparently a feature-length version of this Magic Piano short listed on IMDB. No matter what’s showing, if I ever find myself in Xiamen, I’m going to go check it out.
