This isn’t going to be my usual Living List goal after-the-fact recall. They are usually quite long because the experiences typically are, and there’s only so much I can write about a two-hour movie. What I will say is we were a little concerned it was going to happen at all as we drove towards the city – the rain pelted down on our windscreen. Luckily, that cleared up as we turned into the long driveway that led up to the drive-in gates. As we arrived before the gates opened at 6pm we sat in a short queue, but that quickly got moving. We were pointed in the direction of the field/screen for our particular movie (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) and we headed over, keen to find a perfect position. We parked in the same row as the other early arrivals, about in the middle about halfway back, as we figured they looked like they knew what they were doing. Perfect. We tuned in the radio to the correct frequency, turned off the engine and realised we had 40 minutes until the movie began. So – to dinner!
As we were leaving, there was no traffic turning left (our direction) instead of right (the city), so we got home faster than I was expecting. Double-plus! So while the movie itself was only so-so, the overall experience was excellent – I think we’ll be back!
Have you been to a drive-in?
