Maybe we’ve heard too many Bruce Springsteen songs, but is there any date more Americana than an evening at the drive-in? North Ridgeville’s Aut-O-Rama has been making the case for the car since 1965, with two screens (one 118-by-50-feet and one 96-by-49), Dolby FM stereo sound and a location down by the railroad tracks that would make the Boss proud. Open early April through early October, the $10-a-person drive-in boasts an enormous indoor snack bar (we’re partial to the fried pickles) and eclectic programming, including Halloween weekend movie marathons and “bring your dog to the drive-in” nights. Don’t just pick the latest blockbuster — lean into the retro redux on Retro Tuesdays, themed double features including Alfred Hitchcock tributes and ‘80s nights. 33395 Lorain Road, North Ridgeville, 440-327-9595, autoramadrivein.com Before: Feel like a regular at Lone Tree Tavern, an American pub with an extensive draft list and plentiful pierogies. 33009 Lorain Road, North Ridgeville, 440-309-4978, lonetreetavern.com #OldSchool #Culture #Inexpensive
