So you met Mr. or Miss Right (Now) and you're looking for some place in the Charlotte area to take them on your first date ... and you're trying to do it without breaking the bank.

Usually people say skip the movie since you can't talk and it's dark. I say go to the drive-in in Belmont. It's an old throwback to 1950s dating and the cost for admission is $4 a person. Though it's discouraged, you can pack a dinner that you two want to eat and watch a movie in the car. But the food at the drive-in snack bar is much cheaper than what you pay for at most cinema-plexes around the Queen City.

At the Belmont drive-in, you can buy fries for $1. Their menu is online along with the prices.

You can talk all you want and not worry about someone telling you to shut up.

Show time is at dusk.
