Enjoy a blast to the past, when you watch the Drive-In Retro Classics triple feature movies retro science fiction DVD.
This fun movie collection includes three feature films from the 1950’s on one DVD disc.
I wasn’t around to watch these at the drive-in when they first came out, but I remember having fun seeing them years later on late night TV.
They are good, campy entertainment that isn’t realistic by today’s standards, but the old-fashioned sci-fi movies definitely are fun.
