Last night me and Tim went to a Drive In cinema.
I’ve always wanted to go to one of these and when I saw that they were doing showings nearby, OF CHRISTMAS FILMS, I thought it would be a fun little outing.
We went to see ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’
This is one of my favourite Christmas films, its lovely and hilarious.
Who doesn’t love the Grinch!
We grabbed a McDonalds beforehand as you can obviously take your own food in your car, they did have food services but it was a little pricey.
We also took some popcorn to have whilst we watched the film!
We were a bit worried that it would be freezing but I think we got lucky with the evening that we went, it had been a much milder day.
We did take a duvet to snuggle under anyway because it was still a little chilly and why not!
It was really great to find something fun and festive to be able to do together that was actually really COVID secure.
You stayed in your car the whole time (toilets were available but we didn’t need them, but apparently they were also cleaned after every use too) They have your Number plate registered so all you do is listen to a quick information brief (you stay in the car for) but obviously everyone is wearing masks, and then you obviously sit in your own car for the film, so very minimal contact with others.
I’d never really thought about how the logistics would work in terms of the sound, I’ve only ever been to a Outdoor Cinema screening, but you just set your radio to a particular station and the sound of the film plays through your car radio and you watch on the big screen that they have up.
It was really good fun and this was my first Christmas film of the festive season.
I really enjoyed doing something ‘normal’, this was an ideal festive activity during the current climate.
2 weeks to go!
Until Next Time,
