Drive-in theaters are also not as big as they once were.

There were approx. 4,000 throughout the U.S. between 1950-1960 and it's roughly 350 today.

There was one that I usually went to called "The Memphis Drive-In". It closed in 2005 and I love to go to drive-in theaters.

Maybe next summer, if my dad is STILL around (a broken heart does take a toll when you're a widower) maybe me, him, my sister, and my nieces can caravan to the Aut-O-Rama Drive-In in North Ridgeville.

The circus & vaudeville in real life. As far as tv, trashy talk shows have faded out significantly since their height in the early-mid 90's & soap operas are nearing extinction.

Slapstick Comedy- This kind of comedy was phased out in the 90s I believe. You hardly see it these days

Doo-Wop- Other than various acapella groups , this kind of singing is pretty much extinct.

Bowling Alleys - Very popular leisure activity back in the 1950s. It's not as popular as it use to be.

Arcades - Kids who grew up in the 80s and 90s should remember the arcade. That was when it was extremely popular. Nowadays , their almost extinct.

Movie theaters- Yes , Many still go to theaters, but ticket sales have been on the decline because of the ability to watch films online. It's unfortunate if you ask me .

Video games- Considering how many people are addicted to online games , it's no surprise as to why video games are becoming increasingly unpopular

Home organs.

My wife's grandparents had an organ that had a three-layer keypad plus different tabs that would produce different sounds.
The sounds could be drums, flute, rhythm and blues, rock... many,many others.
It was like having an orchestra from the organ.

Now I don't think anybody has an organ in their house.

Well, I do have a keyboard. And it can sound like several different instruments.

It was a Wurlitzer Organ, the site below has a picture of it or something fairly similar. It also had a cassette recorder in it.

Board games. Electronics killed a lot of old fashion fun.

I know there are still practitioners out there, but I would say the entertainment form of magic has declined markedly. When I was growing up in the 70's, it was pretty big but you rarely hear of a magician entertaining at a venue these days.
