If, like us you are now in desperate need of a day out, then we have the ideal solution for you. The drive-through cinema.
These have been back on the scene for a few years now, usually popping up at Halloween, Christmas and in summer time. They’ve had loads of films scheduled over the past week and they seem to have been inundated with requests to keep going during the current Covid-19 crisis.
Unlike the normal cinema where we’re all piled in on top of each-other (not ideal at the moment) the drive-through is the perfect alternative.
You can buy your ticket online (they scan your phone screen so no handling of tickets needed!) and you simply tune your radio in so you can hear the film. Then, voila! Kick back and relax in the car and enjoy the film.
Both have had tonnes of great classics on over the past week like Stand By Me, The Van, Dirty Dancing and Big.
There have also been lots of earlier showings which are ideal if you have bored kids at home, like The Lion King, Frozen and Mrs Doubtfire.
As it is of the upmost importance at the moment to be social distancing as much as possible, we are not recommending that you invite all your friends along. Instead, do this with those you are already social distancing with at home like your family.
So, stock up on snacks (we also like to bring cushions and a blanket to make it extra cosy) and book your tickets. It’s the closest thing to a day out you’ll get for the next while.
