Summer is around the corner and rolling up just in time for the hottest months of the year is the Disney+ and Openair cinemas Drive-in, which you may remember from earlier in the year when it popped up at the Carrara Sports Precinct Parking next to Emerald Lakes Golf Club.
Once again, Disney+ and Openair cinemas have teamed up to bring us a selection of Disney and Co. movies. The drive-in cinema will offer a mix of old classics and contemporary favourites, kicking off with 10 Things I Hate About You on Thursday 25 November.
From then, it’s onto other films like Deadpool, The Devil Wears Prada, and Pirates of the Caribbean. New releases will also hit the screen with the likes of Free Guy, Jungle Cruise and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
This season won’t be a short three weeks, though. Rather, we’re getting more than a month of movie magic including festive films in the lead-up to as well as on Christmas Day. (If you’re curious as to what film has pinched the headline Christmas Day slot, it’s The Santa Clause starring Tim Allen.)
Cinema-goers don’t even have to get out of their car as snacks can be brought from home so stack up on popcorn, drinks, and ice cream. But since this is an event for all ages, leave the alcohol at home. Hot food can also be purchased via DoorDash and be delivered straight to your car by staff onsite so that you don’t have to miss out on dinner or any of the film. Winning!
Unlike Disney+ and Openair cinemas first visit to the Gold Coast, this summer season will also feature The Park—an outdoor seating area where you can be waited on while you relax in comfy bean loungers and have your own personal volume-controlled radio. Perfect if your own vehicle doesn’t offer up the best views or comfort for the ultimate drive-in cinema experience.
