London’s Drive In Cinema

We all know that post lockdown, life isn’t going to be the same for quite a while. As someone who enjoys going to different experiences and often reviews them, it’s making me a tiny bit anxious about what life will be like this summer. Although, I need not worry because London is full of creatives and making the most out of things is what we do best. What am I talking about? This summer, London is getting it’s first Drive In Cinema!

What is it?

The Drive In is a fully loaded drive in cinema experience that brings a whole host of drive in activities to several cities across the UK.

Think 80’s classics and 2010’s blockbusters films, all from the comfort of your car. The films will be preceded by a range of entertainment that includes stand up comedy, bingo or silent car discos. Sounds epic tbh and just what we need right now.

How will it work?

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, providing not only a coronavirus-proof way of going out, but a rare opportunity to bring back a few hours of normal life.

What about the film? Well they will be using the radio transmission kit from the biggest US Drive in Cinemas, which means the sound will be broadcast straight to your car’s radio, while a top of the range LED screen provides the best quality visual experience. Food and snacks will be available to order online through a mobile app and, in true 50s drive in fashion, roller waiters will bring your order to a drop off point by your car.

What about social distancing?

Cars parked over 2m apart will provide naturally built-in social distancing, and there will be extra measures in place to ensure the experience is in line with government guidelines.

When can I go?

The London dates are as follow:

South London – 2nd – 7th July
East London – 17th – 20th September

I imagine it to sell out VERY quickly so keep your eyes peeled on when the tickets go on sale.

With 6 shows per city, there is something for everyone, from family friendly afternoons to late night shows. With a reduced range of entertainment options available this summer, The Drive In is a must-do!
