7 Products You Need If You're Heading to a Drive-In Movie
The best part of drive-in theaters? You control the snacks!
Drive-in movie theaters are having a moment, and we're feeling equally nostalgic and ecstatic about this come-back. Sure, reclining theater chairs are comfortable, but nothing beats cozying up with blankets, pillows and — of course — your favorite snack in the back of your car. Yes, the best part of drive-in movie theaters getting a reboot is the new control you have over your snacks and overall movie-watching experience. We've rounded up a few products that are essential to make you a certified drive-in expert.
No movie night is complete without popcorn, and we really love making popcorn at home. This popper by W&P quickly air-pops kernels in the microwave without oil. Make a batch before you head out to the drive-in and bring it with you — this portable bowl comes equipped with a lid. Plus, it's collapsible for easy storage on the way home.
You can get classic, butter-laden movie theater popcorn anywhere, but only when you make your own can you add the fan-favorite flavor of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing. Sprinkle some on top of your homemade air-popped popcorn for a unique movie snack.
While this tumbler is great for coffee or water on a daily basis, it also makes for the perfect vessel to bring a large soft drink to the movies. To get that classic movie-theater feeling, we think the bigger the better, especially since this YETI rambler will keep your drink cold until the movie ends.
The luxury of a drive-in movie is you're not limited to the food and snacks provided at the concession stand. If you're upgrading your mid-movie snacks, make sure you have a good cooler bag to keep everything fresh and organized during your drive to the theater.
Create your own mini snack station with these classic favorites. In addition to candies including Swedish Fish and Sour Patch Kids you would normally find at the movie theater, this pack also comes with a few more substantial items including Ritz Bits, Fig Newtons and Belvita cookies.
