Sherry Pratt, 49, is a grandmother of six. She told ABC News that she came up with the idea after seeing a projector on Amazon. She ended up recreating a drive-in movie experience for the kids in her family.
“I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be fun to have an outdoor movie night?’ So I made these cars out of these little boxes for them. My son is a graphic designer, so I had him make the license plates with their names,” Pratt said. “Things just kept popping in my head to make it like a real drive-in. We just invited anybody who could make it. I think we had 12 children there.”
Her niece, 18-year-old Jessie Woods, postedphotos of the event to Twitter, where they quickly went viral.
