A few Drive in Tips!

Get there early!

Most of them are on a first come first serve basis so get there early! 

Aim to get there half an hour early to avoid queues and get your food and drinks orders in

Find out if you can bring your own food and drink

This can save you good money if you can pack a picnic to bring with you. There’ll always be popcorn and hotdogs on site if not.

Make sure your radio works

You can only hear the film by tuning in through your car radio. So if your car radio doesn’t create the best audio, you might want to think about going in someone else’s car.

Take cash with you

Depending on the venue, you might not be able to use your card to buy refreshments. So take some cash out just in case.

Check the age rating of the film if you’re taking the kids.

While drive-in cinemas are great for family nights out, film classification rules still apply and you could be refused entry if your children are under age.
