There’s something wonderfully retro about a drive-in movie experience. Feel like Sandy and Danny from Grease on an exciting date night or treat the whole family to a night out they’ll remember for a long time. Drive-in theatre events are relaxed and designed to be enjoyed. But there are some rules to follow. So, here’s what you need to know.

  1. Turn your car lights off

One of the first things to remember at drive-in theatre movies is to turn off your car lights to avoid dazzling fellow viewers. There will be an LED screen at the front showing the movie and all attention should be on this. If you want to keep your car running to preserve the battery, but can’t turn off your lights, it’s advisable to bring a portable FM radio instead or use an app on your phone.

  1. Don’t overcrowd your car

There’s no limit to the number of passengers in your car, but it’s expected that everyone should have their own seat. This makes perfect sense as it’ll help you to watch the movie in comfort and will ensure your vehicle isn’t overly cramped.

  1. Ensure everyone is the right age

Drive-in movies can be enjoyed by people of all ages, but you still have to ensure that everyone’s the right age for a film. You might be asked to hold valid ID up to your window for inspection. Exceptions are made for babies under 12 months who can attend all movies regardless of age ratings.

  1. Don’t bring barking dogs

Dogs are allowed at most movie screenings, but you won’t be allowed to walk or take them for toilet breaks during the movie. So, think carefully about whether you want to bring your furry friend or not. Also avoid bringing dogs that have a tendency to bark as this will ruin the movie for others.

  1. Don’t smoke

Drive-in movies might be somewhat of a retro experience, but that doesn’t mean you can smoke anytime, anyplace as if it’s the 50s. Drive-ins tend to be a non-smoking experience so that means no lighting up on the premises – even when inside your own car.

  1. Don’t call an outside delivery service

Feeling a little peckish? Fancy some movie snacks? Then order from the drive-in and avoid calling an outside delivery service. The Drive In, London, is offering a whole range of movie treats for all upcoming theatre shows including fries and cheese dogs, as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks – so don’t worry about thirst or hunger.

  1. Don’t litter

It’s also fine to bring your own snacks to the drive-in. Just be sure to take all litter with you to keep the site clean for the next guests. Don’t throw any wrappers, drink cartons or bottles out of your window at any time during the movie.
