Drive-In Movies

We've been going to the drive-in theater in Reo, IN, quite a bit this summer and last.
Back in May we went to see The Croods. It was early in the season, and the temp dipped into the upper 50s after nightfall, and I guess for those reasons, we were one of only two families there! Which was actually wonderful. We picked up some pizzas on the way out there (it's about a 20 minute drive), so we had dinner, and the kids run around and play ball before the show starts. Once it got chilly, we all slipped into sleeping bags and were snug as could be! The movie was cute enough, but it's more about the experience anyway, right?

We have been back a couple more times since then. We saw Epic (blah) and Despicable Me 2 (so cute!). After Epic, we attempted to stay for the double feature (Iron Man 3), but after 30 minutes I was dozing (and Penny had been asleep for an hour!) - and we'd driven both our vehicles, so we had to leave - I was afraid I'd fall asleep driving home!

We love the drive-in! It costs $24 for our family to get in - about half what it'd cost us to see a movie at night at the regular movie theater, and we can bring all the outside food and drinks we want.
