Friday: The Socialite

So, what’s this I hear? Drive-in movies are open to the public again? Sweet! Pack the family in the car and head out to an open-air night at the movies, complete with blankets and munchies. Friends can meet up and park alongside each other to enjoy a night out together. Finally! I have a list of drive-in movie theatres that are open this weekend that I thought you might want to check out in Toronto:

5 Drive-In

With three screens showing the latest new releases, you’ll definitely want to stay for both feature films. Oh, and along with the movies, this Oakville drive-in has an impressive diner and snack bar.

The Stardust

The Stardust, north of the city in Newmarket, is under the same ownership as the 5 Drive-In. It plays first-rate movies and along with its name, it maintains a 60s vibe.

Mustang Drive-In

Cruise down the 401 to London (or head here after spending a day at the beach in Grand Bend) and relax at this drive-in that play first-rate new releases.

Can-View Drive-In

This drive-in megaplex in Fonthill includes four screens, and each one plays a double feature. You can see ’em all for less than $15, meaning you can watch movies from dusk until dawn.

How to Plan a Backyard Movie Night | Denver Life Magazine

What if you would rather stay in, but be outside? How about making a drive-in theatre of your own (without the drive-in part). All you need is to plug in your smart tv outside and start up Netflix, or if you are really fancy, bring out your screen and projector. Huddle with loved ones under the stars and make it a night filled with big screen excitement from your own backyard. Make sure you put together your snacking favs, and maybe even light a fire if there is a pit. Roast those marshmallows and enjoy life in the great outdoors! I’ve posted a great nacho recipe below for you to try for movie night. I hope you all enjoy! Happy Friday everyone!
