Do It. Vineland Drive In.

One of the last standing traditional drive ins in Los Angeles, the Vineland Drive In in the City of Industry is a must do for any Angeleno, and a great Valentine's date possibility.

Strangely located in the, well, industrial part of town it is a far drive east for many LA residents. But the charms of an old time drive in are all there. Staying in comfort of your car, tuning the radio to the right station, running in to the concession stand. And, a lost charm of many theaters, this drive in has double features.

For the same price admission as most solo shows in conventional theaters, drivers can pull in and watch two movies one after another, making it kind of a long night.

Run by the large movie chain Pacific Theaters, this movie theater has most large, current movies and pairs them pretty well. Alvin and the Chipmunks? Tooth Fairy. Edge of Darkness? The Book of Eli.

The one that that can be a problem is leaving. Cars get packed in pretty tight and getting out takes about 10 minutes -- the same amount of time that it would take getting out of a crowded theater.

Also, the Devil's Night Drive-In in downtown L.A. will be playing Sid and Nancy for a downright romantic Valentine's evening.
