The Rebirth of Drive-In Movies on Long Island

 


Drive-in movies faded away a few decades ago, with many people opting out of this old fashioned fun. However, as more people are looking for ways to safely get out of the house, Long Island has come forward with some great drive-in movie night events for their communities. If you’re looking for something different to do with the whole family, consider attending a drive-in theater!


Town of Islip Drive-In Movies

Location: Varies, see location options here.

Admission: Free

The town of Islip is putting together many movie nights for families! Their locations vary, so you can look to see which will be the closest to you. Sponsored by Good Samaritan Hospital, they have a full list of family friendly hit movies. They do ask you to bring a non-perishable food item for the food drive. Gates open at 7, so expect to arrive a little early to get a good spot.


The Gateway Drive-In Theater

Location: The Gateway Playhouse, 215 South Country Rd., Bellport.

Admission: $35 per car

This drive-in theater is playing movies all summer from Ferris Bueller's Day Off to Bohemian Rhapsody. It is a charity event to raise money for the Performing Arts Center of Suffolk County. Movies start at 9 but they recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before in order to get a good spot!

Sag Harbor Cinema

Location: Havens Beach Park off Bay Street, Sag Harbor.

Admission: $40 per car.

Looking for a way to spend a nice Sunday night watching some classics under the stars? From movie classics such as Stand By Me and Thelma & Louise, it could be the perfect night out for those itching for some fresh air. See their other movie options here.


Will drive-in movies stick around even after this summer? We hope so!

Last Minute Summer Things to Do!


Summer is coming to a close, which is a sad thing to accept. No one wants the long sunny days to ever end. The warm temperatures are going to slowly turn into cool breezes. It’s going to get darker outside sooner and before we all know it, the big holidays will all be here.


It’s not too late to grasp at the last remaining days of summertime fun! Don’t wait, use this list and check each of them off before summer of 2018 is gone forever!


Find a Local Swimming Spot


It may not be blistering hot outside as much as it was a few weeks ago, but going for a swim is still possible! Find a local pool, river, creek, and go for a swim. Stretch out in the water and wade through an afternoon with friends and family.


Take a Small Road Trip


There are places within a day’s drive of Long Island that you can make if you want. Mystic Seaport is only a couple hours away. A museum filled with extraordinary pieces of nautical artifacts, along with fine art, film, and video. Philadelphia is about an hour and 45-minute drive also. Visit local shops and get yourself a Philly cheesesteak. Take to the road and explore nearby treasures before the snow hits!


Go to a State Park


State parks surround the state of New York. With your road trip, perhaps visit a state park. Find a place to bike, hike, picnic, grab a camera and take photos, go swimming in a natural spring, if you’re into it go caving, geocaching, rock climbing, or stargazing.


Hit The Beach


If you can, brave the waters. It isn’t as hot as it once was outside, but the ocean awaits! Don’t forget the sunscreen, maybe go out and sunbathe for the day.  


Camping


Camping can be done in all seasons, but nothing beats a summer night camping experience. Sitting in the moonlight by a firepit is one of the best experiences ever. Feeling connected with nature is one of the most calming experiences to have. Decrease your stress and go camping for a few days.


Visit School Locations


Have any highschoolers? It’s time to go scouting for school locations! Take a trip to potential schools and go on some tours. Take a look around the campus or get a tour.

Best State Parks in Long Island





After tax season has ended at P.T.R.C. it is time to take a break and enjoy the nice weather in Long Island. You may not realize this, but Long Island has some great outdoor activities. These are some of the best state parks in Long Island.

Belmont Lake State Park


This state park has several activities for you and your family. You can rent a boat and take it out on the lake. You can also go hiking on one of the many trails. There are open fields for play sports and this is a great place to get out and enjoy nature.

Sunken Meadows State Park


This park has several great geographical features. There are bluffs, tidal flats, salt marshes, and even a brackish creek. There are several hills where you can see wildlife and trails to go hiking on. There is also an area for swimming and during the summer months, there are lifeguards on duty for safety. If you like to picnic there is a large area dedicated to this. If you have a special event coming up such as a wedding or other part of the park can be used to host this event.

Hoyt Farm Park Preserve


This park is one of the largest in Long Island and is over 133 acres. There are fields for different sports including baseball, a playground, and an area for a picnic. If you like to go bird watching this park is home to many different species of birds including the red-bellied woodpecker and the American Goldfinch. This park is open all 365 days of the year and is a great place for you to plan a family outing.

These are some of the best state parks in all of Long Island. When taking a break from P.T.R.C. these state parks will allow you to enjoy the outdoors.
