What things do you think every lover of retro pop culture should experience at least once in his or her lifetime? What things do you think fans of retro pop culture would enjoy experiencing? Let's make a list.

1. Go to a drive-in movie theater.

I would say watching every John Hughes film at least once.

You love this signature.

Another one would be to meet a celebrity from a TV show or movie that was a big part of your youth. With a lot of pop culture conventions popping up all over the place, this one is more doable now than ever before.

My goal since boyhood, was to meet Arnold Schwarzenegger. He was my role model growing up and I finally saw both him and Sylvester Stallone a couple years ago at a movie theater in San Diego

Cool! My big retro celebrity encounters to date are Tracy Scoggins, Margot Kidder, and Cerina Vincent, all of which I met at conventions. It's really a surreal experience to meet someone you admired as a child, isn't it?

Eating at a 50's style diner or a restaurant from a retro movie/tv show (like Tom's Diner from Seinfeld, for example)

Do you ever just get down on your knees and thank God that you know me and have access to my dementia?

Did you actually meet him? What were the circumstances? Arnold is pretty much the only celeb I'd wait in line for aside from The Rock and possibly Will Smith.


I think visiting film locations of your favorite movies is a good bucket list item. This January I went to the Christmas Story house which was awesome.

I had a part-time job at a movie theater in San Diego (gotta pay the rent somehow!). It was a very cool job and during Comic Con ALL of the new film screenings were at our theater. So we had lots of celebrities come in to surprise fans of the film.

As an employee, we were instructed not to interact with the celebrities. Anyhow, Arnold came in to the empty theater lobby all by himself like a badass and was literally ten feet away from me. We looked at each other and did a nod and smile. Later on, he was about to go in to a movie theater and one of his security detail said no and Arnold I shit you not said, "Don't be a girly man" LOL

Go to a concert where a band or solo artist you were into during your youth is performing.
