What to Bring to the Drive-In Theater

All you need for the drive-in theater is a ticket for entry and a comfortable, spacious vehicle from Bill Roberts Chevrolet. But you can enhance any trip to the drive-in with some extra supplies. Here are five things to bring to the drive-in theater this summer.

Drive-In Theater


Many drive-in theaters will only accept cash at the concession stand and/or the front gate. Bring plenty of cash with you so that you’ll have enough for snacks and refreshments throughout the night.


If you want prime seating options, you’ll want to arrive to the drive-in early. If this is your plan, make sure to bring activities to keep people entertained while you’re waiting for the movie to begin, like coloring books, Frisbee, or a football.

A Portable Radio

Drive-in theaters broadcast the sound to the movies through FM radio signals. You can use the radio in your car for this, but if you prefer sitting outside you’ll need a portable radio to hear the audio.


You might be happy to spend the entire movie inside of your car. But, if it’s a clear night it’s also enjoyable to sit outside in the open and watch the movie from there. Bring lawn chairs for everyone for an easy second seating option.

Blankets and Pillows

Summer nights can drop to pleasant chilly temperatures. A light blanket and a few throw pillows will ensure that everyone stays cozy throughout the movie.
