A Massive Christmas Drive-In Cinema Is Coming To Manchester

Love them or hate them Christmas films are a massive part of the festive season, so why not watch them on a massive screen?

Live the 1950’s American dream and take in a drive-in movie at AJ Bell Stadium in Salford this Christmas. Claiming to be Europe’s biggest Christmas drive-in, the four-day event will run from December 20-23, showing some of the most popular festive films, including Home Alone, Elf and The Greatest Showman. As well as alternative favourite Die Hard, which is definitely a Christmas film and I’ll fight anyone who says it isn’t.

Guest will be able to bring in food and non-alcoholic drinks, while elves will be serving up festive cocktails and drinks at Santa’s North Pole Bar and yuletide treats will be available from the street food kitchen. And Rudolph’s fire pit will be the ideal place to toast giant marshmallows or pick up a luxury hot chocolate dusted with enchanted snow shavings.

There will also be an In-Car Karaoke session before the film is shown on what organisers are claiming is the biggest LED screen in the world.

Tickets are available from Fever and are priced at £26 per vehicle, meaning you can bring unlimited guests with just one ticket. Screenings will take place from December 20 – 23. Click here for more information.
