‘Flix Drive In’ movie theatres offer a classic vehicle drive-in experience, and they’re coming to Dorset later this month!

If you’d like to enjoy a socially distanced movie theatre experience with great quality sound and video, and support Flix Drive In’s local suppliers, you should book your tickets before they sell out!

Drive-in movie theatre

Flix Drive In is the largest event in Bournemouth this summer so far, playing movies for all ages every day from Wednesday 26th through to Monday 31st August.

Following on from Flix Drive In’s other successful UK events this summer, Flix are bringing a new twist to an old classic, and they’re going bigger and better for your enjoyment!

High-quality sound and vision from a local company, great food, and drink from local suppliers, working with a community radio station and all from the safety and comfort of your own car.

Movie start times will be 11am, 3.30pm and 8pm, with a vast array of Hollywood blockbusters, classics and newly acquired titles for all ages. Children’s and family movies will be played during morning and afternoon sessions, while evening sessions will be reserved for grown-ups!

Aside from movies, Flix Drive In will have excellent food, drinks, and music from a local community radio station (Hot Radio) and a series of short films in collaboration with local filmmakers “Shoot From The Hip” before all screenings.

On offer for the early shows will be favourites Lion King (2019), Moana, Frozen 2, Wall-E, Matilda, and Aladdin (2019). For the matinees we have classic feelgood fun with Mamma Mia, The Greatest Showman, Bohemian Rhapsody, Grease and Pretty Woman. While the evening extravaganzas will let you choose from classics such as Fight Club, 1917, Pulp Fiction, Superbad, A Star Is Born and Joker.

Charity fundraiser

From 3:30pm on Sunday 30th August, Flix Drive In will be hosting a music charity fundraiser event with Hot Radio, with all proceeds going to the community radio station and Poole and Bournemouth areas.

Organisers say that the two-hour show will offer a selection of Ibiza classics for you to enjoy and listen to from the comfort and safety of your car (max. 4 people per car).

How it works

The movie will be played on a large high quality LED screen. Rain or shine, the screen is suitable for all weather conditions. Audio can be listened to through Ofcom-licensed sound broadcasted direct to your car’s speaker system.

Tickets cost £28.35 per car (plus small transaction fee) and can be booked on www.flixdrivein.co.uk (no vans, lorries or other large vehicles). You will be provided with your own parking space and scannable tickets.

On the day, simply turn up to Bournemouth Airport, Parley Lane, Christchurch, BH23 6SE.

All bookings are managed by SEE tickets and we will have food and refreshments for you to pre-order or to purchase at the event.
