The idea of going to a drive-in movie theater always appealed to me. Laying under the stars, popcorn in hand, watching a film seemed like the perfect date night – until I actually experienced it. While I was a fan of watching a film under the stars, I wasn’t keen on the fact that the movie ended at midnight and we still had a long drive home from the theater ahead of us. Therefore, I decided to make a few modifications to throw the perfect outdoor movie night!
You don’t need to drive to the countryside to enjoy an outdoor movie. Just throw down a blanket in your backyard, add a few pillows and you have set the stage for a cozy date night. Bonus points if you add a few twinkle lights!
Add in a few of your favorite snacks and you are ready to snuggle in and watch a film. You can get fancy with a projector, but we chose to keep things simple and propped up an iPad. This date night is the perfect way to get outside and enjoy the ambiance of a drive-in theater in your own backyard!
