To complement the film selection movie expert Alex Zane will be hosting special blockbuster film nights every Monday with films confirmed that include Rocketman, 1917 & Bladerunner 2049. The night will also consist of Q&A’s from actors and directors.
Brent Cross will also host the UK’s first ever red-carpet Drive-In Film Premiere on 22nd July. The film, ‘Break’, a British thriller stars the late Golden Globe winner and Hollywood legend Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner/True Blood) in his final film role. His co-stars include Bafta winner Adam Deacon (Kidulthood), Sam Gittins (The Liberator/Obey), David Yip (Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom, A View to a Kill) and Jamie Foreman (Layer Cake, Elizabeth). The film also features Terri Dwyer (Hollyoaks/Loose Women) who is producing the film alongside Dean Fisher, whilst Michael Elkin has written and directed the movie.
The Drive-In Club is the first and biggest multi-genre, outside entertainment experience to hit the UK. In line with government guidelines, ticket holders will be able to either sit inside or outside their cars with sound broadcast through a dedicated FM frequency. This entirely contact-free, live programmed event is a safe space to enjoy entertainment whilst adhering to social distancing government practices.
The specially curated content is designed to appeal to a variety of ages and interests and is set to bring people together in a controlled but fun environment. Food & beverage deliveries can be ordered online on the day and delivered direct to your car from a selection of traders.
The Drive-In Club importantly recognises the relentless hard work of our NHS heroes by giving away hundreds tickets free of charge to their hard-working staff. This allows them to spend much-needed quality time with their loved ones. In addition, the Drive-In Club will help the live entertainment industry that has been hit hard, to get back on track via this unique concept.
Drive-ins have already been a huge success in Germany and other parts of Europe. The venues will have carefully managed capacities and dedicated professional health & safety advisors, to ensure government regulations are implemented. Ultimately, The Drive-In Club provides an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of cultural content in a safe environment for customers, talent and event staff.
