I had a discussion with a fellow employee a couple of weeks ago reminiscing about the RC matinee. We didn't grow up in the same town, but we both remembered taking our RC bottle caps as admission to get in. I went to many RC matinees, movie nights, and other afternoons at the Mall Cinema in Hartford. And although I didn't go as often, there was a trip to the Tri-City Drive-In in Beaver Dam.
Fast-forward to 2016, and both theaters are finally getting long overdue upgrades.
