Park N Party At This Wonderful Socially-Distant Drive-In Cinema

By Jack Saddler June 26, 2020

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.

Park N Party has organised film screenings all through the rest of June and July – a true drive-in party with a summer of cinema is going down at Eventcity.

Kicking off with Mary Poppins today (June 26), films are booked in every day until July 15. Some days even include as many as four different screenings. From Rocketman and Dora The Explorer to Joker, Shrek and Dirty Dancing – and even The Conjuring, 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. Screenings cost £25 for the vehicle space, 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.
