Summary, etc.:
The "home theater" will never replace the drive-in theater in America's imaginary landscape. Donald Davis recalls a summer working under the lax supervision of Daff-Knee Garlic, owner and operator of the Sulpher Springs Big-Screen Drive-In Theater in rural North Carolina in the early 1960s. Davis recalls his duties at the concession stand, catching "slip-ins," and patrolling the back rows. But the story culminates on Labor Day when the last movie, The Guns of Navarrone, is almost over. Davis and his buddies decide to give a friend and his date a night to remember--one Daff-knee Garlic can't forget either!
