With summer’s warm, gentle nights, who wants to stay indoors and watch movies on the TV? The drive-in theater is where it’s at! Find yourself a parking spot and set up that speaker, because we’re about to broadcast our first drive-in movie guide. Sure, it’s nice to put on your jammies and snuggle up with a film on a Friday night, but how often does that include socializing with classmates or meeting a potential sweetheart?
According to this BBC News article, fewer than 500 drive-in movie theaters exist in America today, down from about 4,000 in the decades just after WWII. With the emergence of the oh-so-convenient VCR in the ’70s, the drive-in was slowly forgotten. Luckily, a couple hundred still remain across the country for you and me to enjoy. If you’re not sure where your nearest drive-in is, simply check out this list!
Before you drive off, we picked this fun ensemble for when you meet up with your buddies to see a cheesy horror flick or the must-see ‘rom com’ of the summer. As for snacks, fill your bento box with healthy snacks such as this Hershey Kisses and pretzel concoction, sweet potato crisps, or spiced and roasted nuts.
