It may be a Christmas classic, but there's no reason why John Hughes' superb caper Home Alone can't be enjoyed any time of the year! If you're missing your family cinema trips, make your way to the awesome 1950s-inspired drive-thru cinema at the Troubadour Meridian Water in Enfield for an extra-special screening of Home Alone (rated PG) this summer. There's no doubt this new drive-in cinema will be an unforgettable family-friendly experience!
Eight-year-old Kevin is left at home alone when his parents fly to Paris for their Christmas holiday, not realising he isn’t on the plane with them. Kevin must protect his house from a pair of burglars who threaten to break in and rob the place. Starring Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister and Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern as the pair of con men, Home Alone is what a good family film should be all about - entertaining adults and kids with a healthy dose of slapstick comedy!
Experience the magic of the classic American drive-in movie theatre with the whole family. The 1950s-inspired Drive In will be screening a range of films, from classic movies you know and love to massive blockbusters, including Grease, La La Land and Back to the Future. The Drive In is fully contact-free and sound will be broadcast straight to your car's speakers. Expect a top-of-the-range LED screen, 1950s-costumed attendants, American diner-style snacks including popcorn and burgers, and great entertainment.
It may be your first time watching a Christmas film in July, but is there a better way to do it than at a new drive-in cinema?
