Drive In Cinema!

So this Bank Holiday weekend I went to a drive in cinema- something I've never done before. My friend and I went to Tattersall's out in Ratoath where all week they're playing horror movies every night up until Halloween. SUCH an amazing idea! 
The set up was great; Shake Shop, Tim Horton's if you feel like coffee and doughnuts, and an Eddie Rockets Van. We went for hot dogs and garlic fries in Eddie Rockets and ate them in the car- which resulted in ketchup all over my hands of course!

We went to see Friday the 13th- you can't have Halloween without some classic cheesey horror! These movies are so dated but hilarious- and we did did get quite scared at some parts I will admit!

This was such a fun  night and I can't wait to go back and see something next time its on! My one tip would be to bring lots of blankets and pillows, which is what we did so that the car was nice and cosy! You can bring as many people as you like but ideally only two is best so you can see the screen properly- also we wound our chairs right back which was super comfy.

Here's the link to where we went; check out what else they have on this week and I'd highly recommend going if you can! It makes such a difference to just heading to the cinema-its way more fun!

  1. There was a Tim Horton's there?! I am SO impressed! Good old Timmy's :)

    I've always wanted to go to a drive-in but there aren't many left in my area. Most of them have been bulldozed to make way for new condo towers and commercial spaces. Lame, I know.

    1. Its a relatively new idea here in Dublin- kind of a retro/novelty thing but people are loving it so more are popping up all over the place! I'd definitely make it a habit to go-way more fun than just the cinema! :)
      And I keep seeing more and more Tim Horton's around Dublin! As far as I know its a real Canadian thing isn't it?
