Tips for the Best Outdoor & Drive-In Movie Experience
- Bring blankets and pillows to make the car comfortable.
- Bring your own snacks and drinks to avoid long lines.
- Go early—these events will be crowded, and you want a good parking spot with a prime view.
- Bring something for the kids to do (books, games, drawing supplies, or a screen) while you wait for the film.
- Bring small flashlights, especially for kids, for finding the restroom after dark.
- Know how to turn your lights off both inside and outside the car (especially if you plan to have a door or hatch open during the film.)
