    Ready for the summer? Now you can add one more thing to your list of hangout spots--a new drive-in theater.

    It's called Full Moon Drive-In, a company that began in Mexico City now brings its success to San Diego.
       
    This drive-in will be the first one in the county to open since 1966 and will debut with the 1980s Italian film, "Cinema Paradiso."

    It will be 50s themed with a lounge area and have concessions, including food delivered straight to your car.

    Owners of the drive-in expect about 200 cars to fill the lot.

    With their digital projector, they will show family-oriented movies such as "Back to the Future."

    "It's not a permanent structure, it'll be put up on the weekends and brought down and they really want to give families an alternative to a night out, so they can bring the whole family wife and kids and see some classic movies that they probably enjoyed before, but in a new environment," says the Principal of Pacific Beach Middle School Marco Drapeau.

    Families are welcome to bring their blankets and chairs to enjoy a night out at the drive-in.

    Full Moon Drive-In will rent a dirt lot at 1500 Felspar Street on Pacific Beach Middle School's grounds. The price will range from $10 to $30 per car.
