This is the comeback! Going to the cinema is one of the favorite hobbies of many people, so why don’t you get your car and get ready and go to the movies! Like in the old school movies you can do it in Barcelona soon. The drive-in cinema is a form of cinema consisting of a large outdoor screen, a cinema projector and a large car parking area. The screen can be as simple as a white painted wall or it can be a complex steel structure.
It allows you to watch movies from the privacy and comfort of your cars. That’s why adults and children can enjoy the warm summer evenings watching movies from their car on the big screen. The drive in cinema was in fashion many years ago and is now coming back. The same is happening in the city of Barcelona, it will be released at the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020. There will be a capacity of 200 cars on an area of 25.000 m2 close to the Fórum o la de Bellvitge, Hospitalet. The company starting this project is called “Drive in Barcelona”.
The projections will be both billboard and classic premieres and there will be ‘food trucks’ with food of different styles and origin: “We want to get an experience that mixes the audiovisual with gastronomy and drink, therefore, if it is a Western movie that day will be accompanied by nachos, tacos and even cocktails. Sounds like lots of fun!
It will open between the winter of 2019 and spring of 2020 in the metropolitan area of Barcelona, in a location still to be specified with the councils of Barcelona, Badalona and the Hospitalet de Llobregat. The favorites are the Barcelona Forum or the Bellvitge area at the Hospitalet: “The space requires a large infrastructure, easy access and good equipment to perform the operation,” said Morató. The drive-in can be enjoyed every day of the week for a price of 10 euros, with one session a day in summer and it remains to be specified if they will do a session at night as well.
