This year may look different, but there are still plenty of wonderful fall activities to safely enjoy. Whether you want to cozy up at home or escape into nature, experience autumn’s earthly delights and Halloween fun with these ideas.
Bundle up for an outdoor movie.
Enjoy the crisp autumn air while you indulge in classic supernatural or scary films such as Ghostbusters, Halloweentown, and The Shining. If you don’t have the gear for a backyard movie marathon, many audio-visual rental companies, including FunFlicks and Avista, have screens and projectors available.
Miss the big screen? Drive-in movie theaters have been experiencing a resurgence, and many of them will remain up and running well into the fall. In California’s Marin County, the Lark Theater is hosting Lark Drive-In — Movies Under the Stars—a pop-up outdoor theater with a 40-foot blowup screen and enough room for more than 100 cars—for families through October. There are also a bevy of West Wind Drive-In Theaters throughout the West in cities like San Jose, Calif., Reno, Nev., and Glendale, Ariz., so you can catch first-run movies and beloved standbys.
