Twilight Drive-In Movie Theatre
Langley Township Date Idea
What We Loved
Twilight drive in movie theatre allows you to experience a night out, away from others in the out doors.
Our Date Experience
Both P and I will admit it – isolation is starting to get at us. When we started Vancity Date Ideas it was easy to come up with new experiences for us to enjoy, being stuck inside is harder then expected. That’s why we were both excited to hear that the drive in movie theatre was open for business.
For those of you that need help with this – a drive in movie theatre is a movie theatre with an outdoor screen where you drive your car and sit in it to watch the movies. If you’re a millennial you may not know this but our parents are intimately familiar with them. The neat part about a drive in is that the sound for the movie is “streamed” through the radio to your car’s audio system. So if you have an SUV; you can back in – pop the trunk and watch it from the back of your car.
The two movies we watched – really – weren’t that important. The drive in experience is the point. We don’t own a car but we rented one through Zipcar for a few hours. Make sure you take a bigger vehicle.
For our night out we have a few tips for you:
Pack blankets and pillows for the back seat or trunk space and get cozy!
Rent a big vehicle with a hatch back or truck bed to make viewing easier
Bring wine and snacks – in our case we picked up a pizza and brought a bottle of wine!
Twilight drive in movie theatre is a great Vancouver date experience because it’s something different then the normal movie theatre and allows you to be isolated from other people.
Let's admit it, nobody goes to drive ins for a good movie. Its more cuddles and inappropriate kissing in the car, while watching some crapy film, that you probably have seen already. But, if you couple it with the COVID-19 isolation, it suddenly becomes the most amazing adventure.
I am lucky to have a very creative partner, who comes up with all sorts of wonderful date ideas and the Drive In was definitely one of them. He planned the whole thing, got my favourite pizza and even set up a couch at the back of our SUV.
We were watching some weird Super Sonic movie and you know what, I loved it! Or maybe I just loved the idea of being out on a rainy day, self-isolating with my boyfriend at the back of a car with some wine and snacks.
The COVID-19 is going to pass, but the creative date idea of watching a movie out of your car is here to stay and the best part is that you can make it as creative and fun as you want. You can also pull this one off at any stage of your relationship, whether you’re still earning the right to hold her hand or looking forward to missing the entire movie because of all the cozy snuggles and kisses.
Drive-in movie theatres are kind of my jam. Near Toronto there is a large drive-in with multiple screens that I loved going to.
When I first arrived in Vancouver and was considering date ideas for P and I - a drive in movie theatre was at the top of my list. She had never been which made it even more fun for me to take her.
I find that drive in's have a small town vibe to them - so I love it. Our parents lived in a simpler time and it's such great experience to get to relive it.
Date night at the drive in move theatre is highly recommended (by me) - a piece of advice though guys, if your girl wants a better parking spot, don't argue with her just go get the one she wants.
Popcorn, wine, blankets, pillows really help round out the night and make the whole experience enjoyable and fun for the both of you.
Show up 20-30 minutes early to ensure you get a good parking spot to watch the movie from. Also - pizza and wine!
