How does the sound work?

And how does a while family watch through the front windscreen?

My friend went to one. You could either sit in your car or on deckchairs at the side of your car. They had speakers or you can tune your car radio in to it. They had a great time.

You tune in your radio to the station they tell you, and then you listen through that.

The height that the screen is set at means that you can see it through the windscreen from the back seat. You tune the radio in to the soundtrack. Most people put the DC in the front seats and the parents sit in the back. The last time that we went they had closed the snack trailer so on the booking website they advised bringing your own snacks. It is possible to sit through a whole film and not eat, but it's more fun with popcorn and a fizzy drink. They had loos but advised that they were for emergency use only, we peed before we left home. It was fun. I hadn't even realised that the DC had never seen Back to the Future before, I assumed that they had seen it on TV.

I keep looking at doing this but they have such a dire selection of films near me, I wouldn't change the tv channel to watch them, never mind go to a drive in grin
