Drive-In Movie Tips and Tricks

The drive-in is a classic part of summer. If you’re looking to relive your childhood, follow these easy drive-in movie tips for a fun, carefree night with the whole family.

Drive-In Movie

Bring Activities

Going to the drive-in isn’t the same as going to a movie theater. You’re allowed to get out of your seat and play around, so it’s a good idea to bring stuff to do for your kids.

Bring Warm Clothes

You’ll probably get to the drive-in before dark, while it’s still hot outside, but once the sun sets you’ll get chilly fast. Make sure you have sweatshirts and blankets to keep you warm after the sun goes down.

Bug Spray

It’s summer, and you’re going to be in the middle of a big open field at the drive-in. You definitely need to bring bug spray, especially if you want to keep your kids from getting eaten up by mosquitos.

Have a Way to Listen

You can tune into the movie’s audio with your radio, but that means you’ll have your car battery running the whole two hours you’re there. If you’d rather play it safe, bring a portable, battery-charged radio for easy listening.

Eating and Getting Rid of Food

You’re going to be at the drive-in for a while, so don’t forget to bring snacks. But make sure you have a garbage bag to get rid of chip bags, plastic bottles, paper plates, and napkins.
