DRIVE-IN AND OUTDOOR SCREENINGS

Latest update: further to the latest announcement from the Government, screenings in England will not be permitted during lockdown from 5th November to 2nd December as per the latest national restrictions. For screenings taking place in Scotland and Wales, please refer to the latest government guidelines before making your booking.

Following your feedback we have been speaking to the studios in order to improve our outdoor and drive-ins approval process, and to make this as efficient and easy as possible.

Notice: Warehouse Temporary Closure – DVD/Blu-ray delivery is not available at present. Please book under ‘own copy use’ (sourcing your own DVD/Blu-ray) when placing bookings online.

From parks to roof tops, green fields to sandy beaches, the most fabulous and unexpected locations can become the perfect setting for an outdoor or drive-in screening.

Read on to book and for more information.
