Welcome to The Daily Quote – a podcast designed to kickstart your day in a positive way. I’m your host, Andrew McGivern, and today is June 6th.

It’s National Drive-In Movie Day, a celebration of a classic American pastime that conjures up images of vintage cars, popcorn, and outdoor movie magic under the stars.

Drive-in movies have a special place in American culture, dating back to the first drive-in theater opening on this day in 1933 in Camden, New Jersey.

It was a novel idea that brought families and friends together, offering an exciting blend of the comfort of your car and the communal experience of watching a great film.

Speaking of great film’s, lets segue into our quote of the day, which comes from the legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg:

“Every time I go to a movie, it’s magic, no matter what the movie’s about.”

Spielberg’s words capture the essence of why drive-in movies have remained open for generations. Spielberg himself is no stranger to creating movie magic, having directed some of the most iconic films of all time, like “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,” “Jurassic Park,” and “Indiana Jones.” His films have that unique ability to transport you to another world, much like the experience of watching a movie under the stars at a drive-in.

Drive-in movies are about more than just the film on the screen; they’re about the atmosphere, the shared reactions, and the memories created. There’s a special charm in tuning your car radio to the movie’s sound, snuggling up with a blanket, and enjoying the film in an open-air setting. It’s a slice of nostalgia that reminds you of simpler times, even if you’re experiencing it for the first time.

On National Drive-In Movie Day, Spielberg’s quote reminds you to appreciate the magic in these moments. Whether you’re reliving childhood memories or creating new ones, take the time to savor the experience. It’s a reminder that sometimes, it’s not about the plot or the special effects, but the simple joy of being present and enjoying something together.

So, maybe tonight is the perfect time to find a local drive-in or set up your own outdoor movie night in the backyard. Grab some blankets, popcorn, and your favorite people, and let the movie magic transport you. After all, it’s not just about the movie; it’s about the experience and the memories you create.

Thank you for joining me on The Daily Quote. I’m Andrew McGivern, reminding you to embrace the magic in everyday experiences. Until tomorrow, take care, go to a drive in and enjoy the show.
