UK-wide tour across 11 cities running 2nd July – 27th September
Tickets start from £35 per car
This summer, friends and families across the UK can enjoy an exciting take on the drive-in cinema experience. Running for 12 weeks across 11 UK cities, @TheDriveIn invites passengers to pull up in their cars to enjoy a whole host of drive in experiences, from stand up comedy to bingo to silent car discos, ahead of watching some of the world’s best-loved films beamed straight into their car radio. Featuring a top-of-the-range LED screen, a food delivery app serving American-style dishes and snacks via roller waiters, whilst adhering to safe social-distancing practices, @TheDriveIn offers a much-needed escape for those missing outdoors entertainment post lockdown. Tickets start at £35 per car and go on sale Wednesday 27th May, with films and venues announced soon. Sign up for the exclusive pre-sale via atthedrive.in
More than just a movie, each screening will be preceded by a range of entertainment including bingo, silent car disco or stand-up comedy show, elevating @TheDriveIn to a must-do experience for families and friendship groups of all ages. A food delivery app will allow guests to order Americana-inspired food from some of the industry’s best suppliers, delivered straight to special boxes by each car via roller waiters.
Cars parked over two metres apart provide naturally built-in social distancing and entry will be via license plate checking, meaning no interaction between staff and guests is necessary. Toilet facilities and strict hygiene measures in line with government guidelines will ensure a safe environment for all.
With 6 shows per city, there is something for everyone, from family-friendly afternoons to late-night shows providing a must-do ticket this summer.
