Drive-In Cinemas Are Coming To The UK This Summer

Drive-In Cinemas Are Coming To The UK This Summer

Have you ever fantasised about the all-American drive-in cinema experience?

Picture the scene: you and your beau sweep up to a moonlit cinema in your battered teen-mobile of a car, armed with buttery popcorn and a takeaway pizza, and cosy up for an evening of big screen magic.

It's a vision that has Grease written all over it - and it's coming to the UK this summer.

Yep, @TheDriveIn will bring its modern take on the retro drive-in cinema experience to 12 cities around the UK this summer.

With cinemas remaining shuttered for now, a drive-in experience where viewers are contained in their vehicles offers a practical alternative, with built-in social distancing.

Films ranging from 80s classics to noughties blockbusters will play on a top of the range LED screen while 50s-style roller waiters drop your food order to a (distanced) drop-off point by your car.

All screenings are preceeded by a range of entertainment, including stand-up comedy, bingo or silent car discos.

Tickets start at £35 and will be released on May 27th, with limited spaces available for each show.
