Drive-in cinemas are a classic piece of American culture and have more recently been adopted by us British. As lockdown continues to ease we have started to see a rise in outdoor cinemas opening up and we’re here for it.
What better way to enjoy the experience of cinema without the worry of having to be around people? Whether its a Drive-In or an outdoor seating experience, most use state of the art equipment and high-quality personal sound systems so there is no better time than now to enjoy new flicks al fresco.
Need more reasons to visit? Here’s five.
1. Something For Everyone
Whether its lads night, date night or family night, you can guarantee there’s something for everyone. Promising a mixture of new and old time classic favourites you’re bound to find the film for you, from family favourites like Toy Story 4 to psychological thrillers like Joker and cult classics like Pulp Fiction there’s an abundance of choice tailored to everyone.
2. Food and Drink
Like to kick back and snack whilst watching a film? No problem. Whether its offered by the venue themselves with choices like hot dogs and burgers delivered to your car window or you choose to bring your own, the benefit of a drive-in is you don’t need to feel guilty for sneaking in the snacks or being a loud cruncher.
4. State Of The Art Screening
It’s a myth to think that you won’t be able to see or hear anything as most drive-ins take a modern approach to the retro experience using high tech state of the art screening and top of the range speakers or transmission kits to promise the best quality cinematic experience.
4. Romantic Scenery
Looking for somewhere different to take the wife or want to make a good first impression on your tinder date? An outdoor cinema is the perfect place. With locations like Blenheim Palace, Wimbeldon Park and Waddesdon Manor you’re bound to wow them.
5. Little to No Human Contact
Whether you are still wary about being in public with other people or generally just don’t like to mix with people, then the drive-in option is perfect for you. With social distancing adhered to at all times and no one around to talk through the good bits, you can enjoy the screening from the comfort of your own car and in your own company.
