Visitors to Bromsgrove can enjoy a drive-in cinema experience from Sanders Park this August.
Blue Sky Cinema’s “Drive-in Movies” will be coming to the park from the 7th – 9th and 21st – 23rd August with a mix of 80s and 90s classics as well as the latest blockbuster films.
The films will be displayed on two giant LED screens during the day and into the evening, with three showings per day, providing visitors with the perfect opportunity to enjoy family films, RomComs, action movies and more from the safety of their own car.
With 18 films showing over 6 days, there is something for everyone. Whether you prefer sing-alongs like Mamma Mia, Grease, The Greatest Showman (subtitled showing available) and The Bodyguard, more recent films like Joker and Rocketman or household favourites like Back to the Future and Jurassic Park, there is sure to be something to please everyone’s taste. A full list of the films with dates and times is available at: www.blueskyoutdoor.co.uk.
Cllr Phil Thomas, whose portfolio covers leisure and cultural services, said: “I’ve heard many people say recently that ‘2020 is a write off’ so I’m really proud of our Parks and Events Team who have worked hard alongside contractors to bring this drive in cinema to our beautiful park. It’s exciting and different and so much more than your average trip to the movies; it’s bringing enjoyment and positivity to our residents during these strange and difficult times.”
A family of 4 can enjoy the movie in their car for as little as £22 (including booking fees) in the knowledge that all government guidance and social distancing requirements are adhered to and built into the cinema experience. NHS, Emergency Services, key workers and Local Authority employees can enjoy a movie for all occupants of a car for just £11 (ID will be required).
Ian Taylor, Managing Director of Blue Sky Cinema, said: “I’d like to thank Bromsgrove Council for providing the opportunity for Blue Sky
Cinema to bring these great value movie experiences to local people at Sanders Park. A lot of hard work is taking place in the background, with both my staff and council officers, to make sure that visitors will have a fantastic experience with the added security that they will be safe in their own space.”
Families are welcome to bring their own refreshments or they can pre-order food and drink through the Blue Sky Cinema website or app. Refreshments will include a “Retro Box” with candy floss, popcorn and sweets from the 80s, or for those looking to enjoy a more luxury experience there will be handmade crisps, toffee popcorn, raspberry ripple marshmallows, Belgian chocolates, prosecco and – for the designated driver – fresh orange juice. Designated drivers will all receive a complimentary bottle of water.
The cinema experience is expected to be popular and tickets are limited so interested visitors are advised to book in advance at https://thelittleboxoffice.com/bluesky/?category=892.
Bromsgrove District Council’s Parks and Events Team are working with contractors to bring fun and interesting events back to the park in a way which is safe for residents and visitors.
