You may not think it – but planning what you’re going to wear to a drive in movie is a very important step! Don’t be afraid to bring your kids along in their favourite PJs so if you’re seeing a later film they can fall asleep in the car on the way home. It’s all about building excitement leading up to the main event- some like to dress to impress or even come in costume – whatever you choose its up to you but the main priority is that everyone’s comfortable!
Your car seat doesn’t have to be the only option for your drive in movie experience. Get creative with what you bring with you in terms of seating arrangements. We’ve seen everything from bean bags and deck chairs right through to blow up beds! All are welcome as long as you’re careful not to obstruct anyone else’s view! You can even bring light duvets and blankets with you to enjoy your favourite flick under the stars.
Make sure you bring a portable radio along with you to the drive in movies! This means that if the worst were to happen and your car battery runs low – you have a back up. It also means you can sit outside in the gorgeous summer sun without compromising hearing all of your favourite actors and actresses perform their best lines. Don’t worry though – the Drive in Movies Co lovely stewards will be more than happy to give your car a jump start if you need!
A very important step is to leave room for all the delicious food at the Drive in Movies. Everything from pizza and burgers, slush puppies, fresh cooked crepes and ice cream is available for you to enjoy. Make sure you bring your mobile phone too so that you can text in your order and it will be delivered right to your car door – how easy and stress free is that?!
The biggest mistake is to leave booking your tickets to the last minute. Events like the Drive in Movies are extremely popular and tend to sell out very quickly. There are rarely tickets left on the door so don’t disappoint yourselves and get booking now. There are lots of movies to choose from ranging from family favourites such as The Greatest Showman, through to classics like Grease and modern marvels like Bohemian Rhapsody.
