Angry Birds & Captain America – Playing the week of May 20 – May 25, 2016
We decided to kick-it old school and taken an adventure to the drive-in theater off of 69 towards Lindale, Texas! All that replays over and over in my mind is…
“Stranded at the drive in, branded a fool
What will they say Monday at school?”
As you can see we got verrrry comfy, with lots of blankets, pillows, chairs, snacks etc! We kept it very casual with a “No shoes, No problem” approach to the evening & it was nice & relaxing! You could really bring a whole BBQ if you wanted, this was sort of a “no rules” type place… which we love, lol!
As you can see the screen is HUGE, so it was easily viewed from all angles and far away. However, we were only accompanied by about 25 other cars, which we like hehe! We thought it was so cool that, before the movie started lots of kids were playing an running about. It was just a fun, relaxed, happy environment.
Once the movie began, the girls decided they would be super cool and sit on the hood of the car… We sat probably 20 yards away from the concession stand (where the sound comes) and could hear the movie just fine. However, we ended up turning the radio on (96.9) in the car with the windows down & is was as if we had surround sound! Pretty cool!!
“NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY”
Lol- you can tell by these faces, the flash was sooo annoying to our little adventurers. Being the pesky moms that we are though… we don’t mind being the ones bugging them once in awhile!
Although, after about 30 minutes the girls were no longer interested in the movie… (Which ended up being fine ** Movie Review below)
So they just played with their ball and ran around in the area next to us! It was ok, because the sound was so loud near the concession stand, no one could really hear them. Plus they were having a joyous time just being together!
The parts of the movie Lili and I did catch were a mix of funny & inappropriate. I don’t think we would recommend this for a family movie. There is just something about calling each other “flocking birds” that just sort of rubbed us wrong… And I promise, we aren’t prudes, but it’s just a little too close for comfort for us!
DON’T FORGET TO BRING:
- BUG SPRAY
- LAWN CHAIRS / BLANKETS / TRUCK BED
- SNACKS (THERE IS CONCESSION THOUGH)
- TOY (IN CASE YOURS ARE LIKE OURS AND GET RESTLESS)
- STEREO FOR EXTRA VOLUME
- MONEY FOR ADMISSION (DOES ACCEPT CREDIT)
We would recommend this adventure for a fun casual night, close to home & way less expensive than the actual theater! Just watch movie reviews to see if you’re getting the right one for you!
All our love,
