How about a drive in movie mode?

I was at a drive-in movie the other night, and even though I had shut off the headlights, and darkened the screen, whenever I opened the door, it would turn on some of the cabin lights.

So ideally, I'd like a drive-in movie mode that did the following things
  1. Turn off all external and internal lights unless manually operated (The internal lights turned on every time someone opened a door)
  2. Lowered the screen brightness and blanked out the screen until touched (No screensaver like in camp mode)
  3. Maintain the cabin temperature controls like camp mode
  4. For those sitting outside the car, being able to play a radio station outside (this may already there, I didn't try it)
  5. Using the forward or rear cameras (depending on car orientation), display the movie screen and allow zooming into it. This would allow inside passengers to watch, especially in back seats, or in front seats if car has the rear pointed at the screen.
Other thoughts?

Ty hat would be cool. I did a drive in combined with a camping weekend in the Model Y. I put the screen in screen cleaning mode and it kept it dark, as I needed the radio on to hear the movie.
