The Big Mo

One last South Carolina memory before we start flooding you with all the Texas excitement.

We could not leave South Carolina without having date night at the Big Mo. It is a real drive-in movie theater outside Columbia. Pay $6 and get two movies, fresh air, a view of the sunset, and good old fashioned entertainment watching the kids play before the movies start.

Here's the line to get in to The Big Mo that starts forming over an hour before the gates even open.

We thoroughly enjoyed Ratatouille, but apparently are too old because we left after the first movie due to tiredness.

That's our Camry with the driver's door open. We had a great view. And, if you look closely you can see that the parking spots were on a raised hill - so you sat looking up towards the screen, rather than just facing forward. You can also see the kids playing soccer, football, frisbee, and chase in front of the screen waiting for the sun to set and the movie to start.

While waiting for the movie to begin we read in the car, ate junk food until our stomachs hurt, and watched a beautiful sunset.

Here you can see how many people drove out to visit the Big Mo. Many mini-van families backed their cars in, opened their trunks, and tailgated.

And so, if you rae in South Carolina, you need to go to the Big Mo. Meanwhile, we are setting out to discover all the date night gems of Dallas. We'll let you know what we discover!
