I 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.
