Fancy watching your favourite film at a drive-in cinema? Have you been wondering if there's a drive-in cinema near you? Make your way to the 1950s-inspired Drive In at the Troubadour Meridian Water this July for a screening of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (rated 15). Older kids and adults alike will love this story of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus bound for the Outback to put on the show of a lifetime.
Make your cinema experience extra special at this drive-in screening of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Follow the epic journey of two drag performers and a transgender woman who travel across the desert to perform their very own unique style of cabaret in a heartwarming story of self-discovery, sassiness and acceptance.
Drive-in cinemas are the ideal way to enjoy a movie with your family whilst maintaining social distancing. There will be live actors, 1950s-costumed attendants, American diner-style snacks including popcorn and burgers and great entertainment - all from the safety and comfort of your own car. The Drive In will be screening a variety of fantastic films all summer, including Dirty Dancing and La La Land.
This may well be you and your children's first drive-in cinema experience - so don't delay and book your tickets today to this summer’s must-visit London attraction.
