The only downside is you can't switch between screens once you pay. So we have to wait until they're showing two movies that we want to see on the same screen. Having said that, they don't start the first movie till it gets dark which is around 9:30 these days so it's not as difficult for Pearson to be home for the show. Also, on weekends, they replay the first movie again after the second one so if you can't make it by 9:30, you can come in time for the second movie and still see them both.
Anyway, I didn't mean to tall you all of that about the drive-in near us. But maybe you found it interesting. Let's get to the point of this post, shall we?
7 Tips for the Perfect Date at the Drive-In:ONE || Bring Dinner. Pearson and I usually go through a drive through. Especially if he barely gets home in time to make it to the movie. We've also done the picnic thing for dinner too though. It's kinda cool to eat dinner while watching a movie.
THREE || Bring Snacks and Drinks. I always bring a cooler full of drinks and fruit. Then I also bring chips or crackers to munch on. The last time we went, I popped some popcorn before heading out and we ate that during the movie. They have concessions there, but it's cheaper and more fun to bring your own.
THREE || Bring a Blanket. Pearson is always hot and I am always cold. The best way to compromise is to keep the air conditioning on and for me to cover up with a blanket. Plus it's cozier to watch a movie under a blanket, right?
SEVEN || Bring Jumper Cables. The first time we ever went, they told us that you just need to turn your key "one click" to turn on the radio and listen to the movie. That way you don't waste gas. Well that worked a few times in our old car,b ut for some reason when we tried it in the Rogue, the battery died. Fortunately, the drive-in has a jumper box because they say it happens all the time. But you have to fill out a bunch of paperwork and wait your turn to use it. Ever since then we've just left the car running. But if you really don't want to waste the gas and you want to hear the movie through your radio, you might consider bringing your own jumper cables in case your drive in doesn't have them.
