Want to pimp out your ride for the night out? Keep reading to see how you can get your car drive-in ready for a night under the stars!
What should you take to the drive-in?
Your first instinct may be to pack your cooler and snack bags full so you’ll have something to munch on during the show. But the same general rules of the regular theatre applies to the drive in — concession stands are open, which means outside food and drink is not welcome. However, there are some other things that can help take your night from good to great.
Blankets & pillows
If you’re planning to watch from your vehicle, and few blankets and pillow and help cozy up your ride. Shows typically go pretty late, so chances are someone in your party won’t make it to the end credits.
Advice from a professional lounger: if you have a blanket with sleeves, take it with you. There’s nothing like watching a movie and snacking away, all while staying cozy.
Lap desks & trays
Whether you’re sitting in the front seat, back seat, bed of a truck, or outside on lawn chairs, there’s one thing that’s for certain — you’re going to be snacking. To keep yourself (and your little ones) organized, consider taking lap desks or trays to make snacking more accessible. With a place to rest your food and drink while you enjoy the show, you won’t have to worry about too many slips and spills...
Clean up supplies
But chances are, they’ll still happen. Go prepared with paper towels, wet snaps, hand sanitizer, and Lysol wipes for any surfaces you feel need a quick wipe down. A spare bag for empty wrappers and bottles will help keep the mess contained — and keep you from making multiple trips to the trash can during the show.
When the night’s over, it’ll make for a quick and easy clean up, so you can hit the road and get home to your bed ASAP.
