If you have a drive-in movie theatre near you it can be a fun and relatively inexpensive way to see a movie as a family. The ticket price can be similar to seeing a movie in a theatre, but most drive-ins have no problem with you bringing in your own snacks and some even allow you to barbecue before the show. Most drive-in theaters also show a double feature so you get two movies for the price of one.
our family go's the drive-in atleast two times a summer. we take tiki lamps,candles,lots of food and drinks. the kids play football before the show. we have a great time at the drive-in each summer!
Some drive-ins ask you when you check in if you have "even" a can of pop with you and if so they charge you an additional $5.00; they say they make their money from the concession stands. Check first so you won't be surprised.
We are lucky enough to still have a drive-in theater in our area. It's two movies for $7.00. You can bring your own food and drinks for a $5.00 charge or buy from their concession stand. The concession stand prices are really not that bad- better than the local regular theater and I am glad to pay if it keeps this historic landmark around. The kids and my husband and I love it.
