With warm sunny days and comfortable nights forecast for the weekend, Prides Corner Drive-In in Westbrook could not have picked a better weekend to kick off their season.

Prides Corner Drive-In originally opened in 1953 and is still in business today. I remember seeing Superman III at Pride's Corner back in 1983, which was the first of two really bad Christopher Reeve Superman films. I liked it as a kid, but looking back now, it was awful.

Prides Corner Drive-In still shows first-run movies today, but they also show retro classics going all the way back to the days when the drive-in first opened. Last season they were still open in December to show Christmas Classics like The Polar Express, Elf and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

With the price of everything going up these days, tickets prices at Prides Corner are still affordable at $20 per car with up to 2 people, $25 per car with 3 to 5 people, and if you're rolling in with a minivan, it's just $5 more for each additional person above 5.

What's on the really big screen for opening weekend? It starts with Sonic The Hedgehog 2 with Jim Carey as Dr. Robotnik. This blue guy has already raked in $349 million worldwide in ticket sales, with some more to be added to the til this weekend at Prides Corner.

The second feature is The Lost City with Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum and Daniel Radcliff, proving he can play other roles other than Harry Potter.

Gates open May 13, 14 and 15 at 7:30 or earlier and tickets will be available at the box office.

These 5 Closed Drive-In Theater Locations in Maine Still Show Hints Of Their Past Today

The Price Difference Between a Condo on Washington Ave in Portland, ME, and St. Louis, MO is Astounding

I found two condominiums. One in Portland. One in St. Louis. Both in their respective cities. Similar square footage. The major difference, of course, is the ever-important location, location, location. And, even with similar square footage, Portland has one bathroom up at St. Louis. Still, the price difference is massive. Portland comes in at a whopping $1,105,000. St. Louis? An easily digestible $110,000. That’s not a typo.
