To those who are old enough to remember drive-in theatres, there's probably a little flicker of excitement to the news that drive-ins are making a comeback. The new normal is here and right now it makes so much sense to watch movies in your own little bubble. Watching a Movie from the comfort of a Zorb may work for some, but for others there's the good old-fashioned drive-in. Pulling into a big car lot with the family, there's something strangely romantic about drive-in cinemas. Perhaps it's the naive '50s version of Hollywood that connects us with the concept of diners and the hazy days of nostalgia around cars, milkshakes and popcorn.
Whatever you've heard or remember about the heydays of drive-in, the technology has come a long way. You no longer need to park next to one of those little speaker poles and can probably tune into the soundtrack with your car stereo on a designated FM audio frequency.
GoDriveIn is situated at 346B Victoria Rd, Salt River. The big idea is to catch a movie in the comfort of your car, but the experience is all about movies, music, comedy and good food. Tickets cost R240 for a single car's entry with two passengers with a R60 surcharge per person thereafter. You can book tickets through Howler and the venue will have food trucks for people who want to grab a bite to eat or some snacks. Amazingly the venue doubles as a Roadhouse by day.
In true drive-in style... GoDriveIn's grand opening will be around Back to the Future. Featuring a car, revisiting the golden age of drive-in theatres and cool cars... it's a perfect throwback movie to kick things off. Marty McFly knows a thing or two about getting nostalgic with Uncle Biff and being a timeless classic about time travel, so do we.
The line-up includes rewatchable classics like Jurassic Park, Bridesmaids and Get Out with a few fun evenings for Mamma Mia and How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. The schedule also includes a number of great South African films such as Knuckle City, Five Fingers for Marseilles and The Story of Racheltjie De Beer.
Let the good times roll!
