A DRIVE-IN cinema is coming to Newport - and they are showing a mix of films perfect for all tastes.

With cinemas having been shut since March as Wales and the rest of the UK was put into lockdown, many of us have had to rely on streaming platforms to get our movie fix.

But now you will be able to watch outdoor screenings from the comfort – and safety – of your own car.

The films being screened are: Grease, Joker, Walk the Line, Dirty Dancing, The Goonies, Pretty Woman, Back To The Future, Stand By Me and the Blues Brothers.

And the tour also includes in-car dance parties, where passengers can tune into club classics and party anthems from the 80s and 90s, accompanied by visuals on a giant LED screen and a light show.

The sound is transmitted via speakers given to each car upon arrival.

The Drive-In experience will be in Newport from Thursday, September 24 to Sunday, September 27.

You’re allowed to bring your own food and drink – so no more sneaking your food past a steward at the cinema.

And on-site toilets will be available.

A venue is yet to be fixed.

“We’ll be using our breadth of experience from the last three years within outdoor cinema creating a memorable experience for all those who attend. Not only do we have some fantastic movies to show, we also have music events that bring you the ultimate in-car party. We cannot wait!”
