see it: drive-in movies

After our Long Island adventure Saturday afternoon out to the breweries, we weren't ready to go home yet. We had talked about finding a drive-in movie theater near the city, since outdoor movies are always fun and I had never been to a drive-in before. We found the Warwick Drive-In in Warwick, NY, about 90 minutes outside the city. (Coincidently, it's located only 5 minutes from Masker Orchard where I go apple picking every fall!). Double features start at 8:45p, and they show films on 3 different screens, for a total of 6 movies each night. We picked X-Men First Class and Thor, and paid $8 each to get in.

The drive-in is located on 11 acres of farmland and is family run, with a concession stand near each of the 3 screens. I was surprised how many people were there, given that it was cold and rainy and seemingly located in the middle of nowhere. After grabbing popcorn and sodas we cozied into the car, reclining our seats and tuning in to the audio over the radio. You could see fireflies in the trees all around the screen, and despite the rain it was a beautiful night to be outside. Was such a fun night, can't wait to go back!
