An Immersive Drive-In Cinema Perfect For Summer Nights Is Coming To Manchester

By Laura Rogan

The sell-out experience has had a magical makeover.

Taking Eventcity by absolute storm last year, the fabulous Park N Party experience – also behind the sell-out ScareCity – is back. And this time, they’ve got a number of absolute hits up their sleeves for us to enjoy. Promising to be ‘better than ever’ before, the new concept – SecretCity – will return next week, with a roster of cinema classics and new releases to enjoy.

Bringing the biggest LED outdoor screen along with them, the event will feature a host of immersive entertainment – including live actors who’ll be out and about across the venue, a large scale laser show, as well as food and drink vendors and many more surprises in store for guests to enjoy. If that wasn’t all, there’ll even be an alfresco bar where you can chat with friends and catch up over a drink with gourmet burgers, loaded fries and more on the menu, as well as a variety of different picnic seating areas to choose from.

Boasting a magical secret garden theme throughout, upon arrival, guests will be led through the enchanted tunnel (where you’ll be greeted by a ton of photo opps), before entering the drive-in cinema where SecretCity will be playing hit after hit.

Check out the full schedule below:


  • The Exorcist – Wednesday 26th May at 8.30pm

Providing a safe and socially distanced experience for Mancs to enjoy, SecretCity will roll into town on April 15th, with bigger plans in store for when more Coronavirus restrictions are lifted. Later in the summer, the unique events space will be home to outdoor events suitable for guests arriving by foot as well as by car, including cinema screenings, DJ appearances, live football broadcasts and a giant amphitheatre – with a capacity for 300 people.

For now, the SecretCity drive-in cinema is set to be a sell-out affair, so bag your tickets here before it’s too late.
