To ensure the safety of guests, a number of social distancing measures will be in place - including plenty of space between parked cars and entry scanned via reg plates on vehicles to avoid contact with staff.

Guests can bring their own food, snacks and drinks to enjoy from their cars, which will all have full view of the screen.

Ben Lovell from Adventure Drive-In said: "We are extremely excited to launch our Adventure Drive-In tour and feel that drive-in offers the perfect solution for events when social distancing is required. 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!"
