I grew up at the Monetta Drive-In(now the Big Mo). My great granddaddy operated the drive in for years. After his death, my aunt continued to operate the drive in. So I grew up around the drive in and loved it. I go to the Big Mo every chance I get. You can not beat two movies for $6.oo a person. I am so happy that Richard and Lisa opened the Big Mo.

That is not true. There is two drive-in movie theaters in SC. One in Monetta and the other is in Beaufort, SC.

I'd love to see one open back up in the Columba area. There'd probably be just enough of us who'd love the nostalgia to support it.

I had a bad experience there, thought it would be nice to take the misses to the drive in.
Order some Red Lobster (her favorite) to go, had some champipple we were enjoying the movie, when I got to get some ice, a group of young white teens in a yellow ford ranger started making racist comments like "Go to the back of the Bus"..
