Going to the cinema for a datenight might not be easy for new parents who got babies needing their full attention at the moment. Watching Netflix at home might be fun, but you still need to go out some times to watch the summer sequels no matter how overrated they are, right? Well, a really good option is to go to a drive-in! You can watch a new movie, while nursing your baby at the back seat and putting him to sleep afterwards. Your baby can cry or have his diaper changed anytime he likes because it's your own car, nobody's gonna get annoyed by your baby's crying! How convenient, right?
After looking for options, we decided to go to Coyote Drive-in last weekend, and we had a blast!
Located at our neighboring city, Fort-Worth, this drive-in has got 3 screens that projects 6 movies each night (2 movies per screen). The first movie screening usually starts at 9 p.m. and the second one at around midnight.
So you come, pay for the tickets, and park your car in front of the screen, just pick a spot!
Then you head here to purchase popcorn, refill-able sodas, cotton candies, pizza and even wine. They also got food trucks that sell gigantic turkey legs and snow cones. All topped off with a live music performance and most importantly, clean toilets!
With $8 / adults ticket fee, I think this place is definitely worth going to. We put baby J to sleep in the car seat, and we enjoyed the movie (well not really enjoyed it, Transformers sucks...sorry Michael Bay) screening experience. It's been a year since we went to the movies on a saturday night, so it was good to be able to bring a baby without worrying about him being loud and annoying in a public place.
