Rooftop Film Club is now selling tickets for a contactless drive-in movie experience opening on 4 July at the iconic Alexandra Palace. The company has adapted its previous drive in set up to keep all the magic but ensure events meet social distancing rules.
Family films like Grease, Toy Story, Up, The Incredibles, The Goonies and ET, are on the schedule alongside cult classics like Breakfast at Tiffany's, Mean Girls, Fight Club, and Pulp Fiction, plus recent hits like Aladdin, Joker and Knives Out.
There really is something for everyone and that's just the listings for July!
Lucy Fenner, Commercial Director at Alexandra Palace said: “With spectacular panoramic views of London, Alexandra Palace Park is the perfect setting for this truly unique cinema experience for everyone. I’d encourage anyone who is able to travel to this lovely part of north London to check out the schedule and get involved.”
There will be two daily screenings with extra daytime family screenings on weekends with an impressive 40Ft LED screen and audio that can be picked up through local FM stereo in a car, or via portable radio. Toilets with extra sanitisation procedures are available.
Customers are welcome to bring their own snacks or order from an online system for sweets, refreshments and hot food on the day, delivered to outside their cars.
Rooftop Film Club co-founder and CEO Gerry Cottle said: “We want to bring people together, albeit safely, during this challenging age of social distancing. We believe that leaving your home in the safety of your vehicle will provide a fresh opportunity to share new experiences with the people you’re isolated with.
"We also want to give our staff an opportunity to earn a living without compromising their health and partner with local businesses so they too can continue to operate and generate economic value. At the same time, we want to give back where we can. Drive-in cinemas first arrived in the US when the world was recovering from economic turmoil, and here it is again to help us on our way.”
To thank frontline workers 20 free tickets per screening are being set aside for the UK’s incredible NHS workers (valid NHS email address required).
The company is also using the events to raise vital funds for anti-racism work, writing in the release: "As the UK is dealing with two crises right now – a pandemic and systemic racism, all proceeds from one screening/month will be donated directly to anti-racism charities."
BUY TICKETS NOW £27.50 per car for 5pm and 2pm screenings and £29.50 for 8pm screenings, plus booking fee (cars, SUVs and 4x4s only). Age rating for films will be strictly adhered to and ID will be required.
