Our Drive-In Movie Party


When was the last time you went to a drive-in movie!?!?  Do you even know of any still up and running?  I remember as a kid going with my family to one a few towns over and we always had so much fun!  I can’t imagine our kids not even knowing what one is! (wow! - I feel sound old!)  Charlie and I decided to take matters into our own hands and create a drive-in theatre in our backyard!  By the end of the night we were already talking about when we could do it again!  We rented a projector and screen from a local company and set it up right on our patio.  It was only about $90 to rent.  We asked everyone attending to pay $10 per family and this helped cover the expense.  Plus, who can take their family for a fun night out and spend less than $50 these days!?!?  Everyone backed their trucks in, filled their truck bed with lawn chairs and sleeping bags and we had our very own Drive-In Movie!  The kids loved it and so did us parents!  We watched The Lorax and Happy Feet 2!
 
 
 
We even had our very own concession stand!
Caramel Corn, Butter Popcorn and White Chocolate Popcorn!
 
And of course, there was a candy bar...
 
 
 
We created all of our own food tags and concessions sign!
 
We had such a blast and it was a great way to spend time with family and friends!  Have you ever thrown an outdoor movie party or created your own Drive-In? 
 
We can't wait to do it again!
 
Until then, here's some FREE printables for you so you can have your very own Drive-In!

If you have a party of your own, we'd love to hear from you and see your photo's!
 
Thanks for stopping by!
 
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  1. This is so stinkin' cute!!! I want do it!!

    Looks like you guys had a great time! It might be worth the investment to buy one of those projectors! I'm sure my boys would be watching movies outside every night if we had one! We would definitely get our money's worth out of it!
