Went back to the future last Saturday, with a trip to the old Tivoli Drive In not far from Ipswich. Drive Ins used to be THE family outing in the days before home theatres and DVDs. The Tivoli is now the home of the Rivers of Life Christian Church, which does a lot of social work in the Ipswich community, and holds free movie events every Saturday. Last Saturday the Cars movie inspired a gathering of muscle cars and street rods,.
including a car done up to look like Lightning McQueen.
My grandkids loved it! Clearly the star of the car show. It was a great day all round – the drive in looked great, with masses of flowers inbloom:
This is the original Tivoli Cafe, open for business again;
We loved it when the sun went down and the screen lit up – talk about nostalgic!
We will be back! There’s no magic like drive in magic.
