Catch Classic Movies At This Wonderful Socially-Distant Drive-In Cinema

Time for some drive-in cinema action.

A lot of us may only be familiar with drive-in cinemas from the movies. Those nostalgic films depicting long, hot American summers sat behind the wheel in front of the big-screen with some popcorn.

Now, you can be part of the socially-distant resurgence of outdoor cinema! A full schedule of drive-in films, equipped with family-friendly classics for the kids to enjoy, to spine-tingling horror, is on offer all summer.

The Great British Drive In Cinema has organised film screenings all through the rest of July and August – a true drive-in party with a summer of cinema is going down at the lovely Sandon Hall.

Screening hits such as Life of Pi and Les Miserables this weekend, films are booked in every day until August 4th so far. Some days even include as many as five different screenings. From How to Train Your Dragon and Finding Nemo to Iron ManShrek and Ready Player One – and even Straight Outta Compton, there are films to enjoy whatever your favourite genre might be.


All you’ll need is your set of wheels with your ticket and you’re good to go. Tickets are available now, and can be purchased here. Sound will be streamed through your car’s radio, too, so you don’t need to worry about missing a single moment of your chosen film.
