As part of a new series of articles looking at unique cinemas across the UK, Adam Brannon visited Moonlight Drive-In Cinema.
A drive-in cinema is probably not the first thing you’d associate with a rainy winters evening, but that’s exactly what I did at the end of January.
After accepting an invitation to attend a screening of Jurassic World at the Moonlight Drive-In Cinema (how could I resist?) I cleaned the car and invited two friends along for the ride. In this article, I share my experiences of the evening as a whole; from the film itself, to the food and atmosphere.
Foreword by Adam Brannon: Drive-In cinema is something synonymous with American culture, but Ben Stonehouse had a vision to bring that traditional US pastime to the Blighty. I had a fascinating chat with him about the Moonlight Drive-In Cinema brand and how it came to be, which you can read in the following article.
I also enjoyed the Moonlight Drive-In Cinema experience first-hand when Movie Metropolis was offered tickets to watch Jurassic World in the UK’s City of Culture for 2017, Hull. You can read about my experience and the experiences of those I took with me early next week.
