All you need is a large sheet, a cozy picnic blanket, and some fresh popcorn to make it feel like you’re at a drive-in. The warm glow of the stars above will light up your movie screen, and the balmy summer breeze will keep you cool as you enjoy your feature presentation. Indulging in this sweet escape will make you forget that you’ve never left your house! So seize the moment and start planning your next movie night under the stars.
