Tips & Tricks for the Drive-In Theater

courtesy Door County Visitor Bureau

To make the most out of your drive-in movie night, here are a few tips and tricks. 

Be sure to do these things before you arrive:

  • Go to the bathroom. With COVID and social distancing, public restrooms might not be open. 
  • Eat something healthy and/or bring your snacks: the snack bar will only have candy and treats, and it may not even be open due to COVID. 

Be sure to bring the following:

  • Cash for the snack bar.
  • Garbage bags for easy clean-up.
  • Sippy cups or cups with lids so the back seat doesn’t get sticky.
  • Coloring books, crayons, pens for pre-movie doldrums.
  • A board game the family can play if there’s a spot to spread a blanket.
  • Wipes (but you never leave home without those).
