    I'm thinking about bringing Murray to see the secret life of pets, he seemed to like the preview! Have you guys ever done this before? Would love to know your thoughts. Thanks

    Yes we did bring them a couple of times. It works out fine, we usually bring a blanket and some lawn chairs and sit outside at first, and then we go back in the car. They usually just sleep on the back seat. We just make sure to feed them before we go, and bring water for them to drink. They go for potty breaks in between the movies. The Drive In where we go has some fields around it, so there are grassy areas on the perimeters for them to go. It should be fine, as long as the night is a little cooler, so they don't get hot in the car and overheat.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Oh, and I forgot always make sure they are wearing an ID tag with their name, address, and phone number just in case they get loose, or run out of the car.

    What a great idea! We will have to see if there is one around here. Mabel would love going with us.

    Drive Ins? I haven't seen one of those around here in 40 years. The closest thing we have to that around here would be the Fantail Film Festival where we can go watch movies on the fantail of the battleship Wisconsin. My son volunteers at Nauticus in Norfolk and we get to go for free, although I've yet to go. Not sure that dogs would be allowed.
    I bet it would be fun though, why not? Movies, TV, etc. are always more enjoyable in the company of a nice warm Bulldog.

    Was thinking the same thing.... I do not think they exist around my area any longer.
    I did see on the web... I think in Toronto there was a showing at a rooftop theater where you were allowed to bring your pet to the movie (Secret life of pets)

    We still have a drive-in, that is open until the end of Sept. It is much too hot(over 100) to go to this summer! I did see the movie in the indoor,and it was a fun movie. @CCandMurray

    Well now it all depends and how much of the movie will you be watching. Maybe sneak him in the trunk...you may have to pay double.
