  21. To truly get the drive-in film understanding, you may even consider leasing concession hardware like a popcorn or frank machine. You could keep the snacks basic or have somewhat more fun with it. Consider themed bites to go with your film; chocolate to go with "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" or a meatball hors d'oeuvre with "Shady With a Chance of Meatballs". FreeHDMovies
