The Luna Cinema, announces its return with an amazing new drive-in season opening from April 12th. Following the government roadmap announcement that allows specific entertainment to start again, film fans will have the opportunity to experience new and classic movies in a nostalgic, socially distanced setting.

The outdoor Cinema will be at the Birmingham NEC from April 15th - 3rd May 2021

There are a range of film classics to choose from, including:

  • Jurassic Park - April 15th & 28th
  • Grease - April 17th & 30th
  • Dirty Dancing - April 23rd & 29th
  • Greatest Showman - April 16th, 24th and May 1st

George Wood, founder of The Luna Cinema, said:“Following an extended winter break, we are incredibly excited to be announcing our Spring drive-in season, starting in April, and to be able to offer the return of the big screen experience for all those people desperate for some entertainment that isn’t inside the four walls of your living room.

"The move to Drive In Cinema in 2020 was a revelation for us, after staying away from the format for the previous 12 years!  The socially distanced element was a given, but the level of audience enjoyment and communal sense of being part of an event that manages to blend that rose-tinted 1950’s American nostalgia with brand new 21st century technology to bring the drive in cinema right up to date, took us all by surprise.

"People clearly love the experience and it wasn’t just the novelty of getting out of the house!  It took a pandemic, but the drive in cinema is now a part of the UK’s cinema offering and long may it continue.

“We’ve managed to make every aspect of the event fully compliant with social distancing regulations, from the way the tickets are scanned through to the provision of food and drink.

"Audiences can feel confident we have created an experience that is safe so they can have confidence in returning to one of the things we’ve all been missing most in this current lockdown – enjoying a great film on a giant screen under the stars.

"The summer is set to be filled with the triumphant return of open air cinema, with hundreds of Luna screenings planned for the country’s most stunning green spaces, but in the meantime, it’s all about the drive in and we can’t wait to welcome audiences back for a fantastic Luna drive-in cinema experience.”
