It's prime time to freshen things up for date night with your partner. How about hopping in your car and head to the drive-in theater for a romantic movie night underneath the stars? All you need are some yummy snacks, a Polaroid camera, and drive-in movie Instagram captions to capture the sweet moments together.

Drive-in movie theaters are making such a comeback. Along with listing safety guidelines online due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, places like Mission Tiki Drive-In Theatre and the Paramount Drive-In Theatre near Los Angeles are fun spots for couples and roomies to head to for a night out. Not only are they super dreamy, but they also give off a cool throwback feel like you're in Grease or Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. Plus, you know you have a great seat when you're getting cozy in your own car with your favorite treats on deck. Some theaters even offer double features so you can watch not only one great film, but two.

Imagine the adorable selfies you and your SO can capture while you're sitting in your car, watching the sunset, and waiting for your movie to begin. You can even snap a quality foodie pic of all your favorite movie snacks like popcorn and M&Ms. When the show's about to begin, you don't want to be fumbling around on your phone trying to come up with a punny or cute caption. Instead, use any of these 45 drive-in movie quotes that will make your post picture-perfect.
