The drive-in is one of the most precious heirlooms of Americana, and we must preserve it. And the Georgetown Drive-In in Indiana is as as good as it gets with two screens, snacks and a family-friendly vibe. On Screen 1, you can delight the kids with “Boss Baby: Family Business” (not sure why we needed another one, but OK) and “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway,” (also perplexing, but hey, little Liam likes it). On Screen 2, it’s the action lover’s dream with “F9: The Fast Saga” (9? This is getting ridiculous) and “Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” (you get a sequel, you get a sequel; everyone gets a sequel).
