Drive-in movie theater
That’s right, boys and girls, it’s another sure sign of spring.

Pay no attention to the posting on their website that says they won’t be opening until April.

The Hi-Way Drive-In on Route 9W in Coxsackie is opening for the 2010 season tomorrow. The drive-in will be showing “Cop Out” with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan on a double bill with “The Blind Side” starring Sandra Bullock in her recent Academy Award-winning role.

The Hi-Way Drive-In will be open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and the screenings are scheduled to begin at about 7:30pm.

Thanks to Bill O’Donnell for the tip.
