As parks all over town roll out the big screens for free outdoor movie showings this summer, we are left with two questions: “What movie do I want to see outside?” and “What should I bring?” Check out our cheat sheet below for answers to the latter question.
Batik-style tapestry, $30
You will love this local store’s blanket options from India for movie-going in style. PSA: If you bring a chair, sit in the back — please.
Plantation Patterns paisley print, $13
Lay that pretty head of yours on something designed to be comfy no matter what nature throws its way.
Cutter Skinsations, $4.50
This half-ounce bottle of mosquito repellant came as a freebie with a larger bottle of Skinsations. The smaller “pen size” is handy because it won’t weigh down your travel bag.
Sour Patch Kids, $1.39
Sour Patch Kids are far superior to any other movie theater staple, but you can pick up a box of your (less impressive) favorite candy at most grocery and drug stores.
Blue Avocado mini-chill clutch, $17
If dragging a cooler to an outdoor movie sounds obtrusive, try a cooler in a carry-on, like this eco-friendly Blue Avocado brand bag.
