The Luna Drive-In Cinema fuses the nostalgia of classic American drive-in with up to date films and state-of-the-art sound and visuals, and a bespoke sound system, the only one of its kind in the UK.

Neither will there be a need to have the car radio running and risk draining the battery. 

There will also be a fantastic selection of food and drink items available either as a pre-order with tickets, or ordered from the car on the night using a smart phone, with staff speedily delivering orders on roller skates and scooters!

George Wood, founder of The Luna Cinema, said: “Since 2008, when we first started putting on outdoor cinema events, I’ve been asked countless times ‘why not expand into drive-in screenings?’.

“My answer was always that they lacked the sociable, communal quality of open-air screenings, as the audience were cocooned in their cars.

“Fast forward to the era we are currently living in, when social distancing is the “new normal”, and drive in with its immediate separation from other audience goers, is the perfect solution to get people back to the big screen!

“Not only that but we are confident we have cracked the sound with an incredible in-car wireless solution. We’ve managed to make every aspect of the event fully compliant with social distancing regulations, from the way they tickets are scanned through to the provision of food and drink, audiences can attend our drive in screenings with confidence, and return to one of the things we’ve all been missing most in lockdown – enjoying a great film on a giant screen under the stars.

“We plan to commence open air cinema screenings as soon as it is safe to do so, when the official advice allows, but in the meantime, we can’t wait to welcome audiences for a fantastic drive in cinema experience.”
