Loxwood Drive-In Movies launch on July 9.

Spokeswoman Heather Joy said: “For 14 days this summer, the big screen will light up the Loxwood Meadows as the classic movie-going experience is reinvented. And, if you are more than ready for a socially distanced, safe night out, this American-style drive-in movie extravaganza is going to turn the dream into a reality.

“Showing favourites such as A Knight’s Tale, Rocket Man, Finding Nemo, Despicable Me and Dirty Dancing and with sound being channelled through each individual in-car stereo system, the thrill just gets better and better as a selection of food and beverages will also be available to be delivered to your seats.

“Cars will be parked at least two metres apart in numbered bays and, having chosen from a selection of meat or vegetarian burgers, hot dogs, chips, popcorn, sweets, soft drinks or alcoholic beverages, a food delivery service will enable you to text your order for delivery to your vehicle.

“The huge state-of-the-art LED movie screen will make the family matinee performances running at 5pm, and the evening showings at 9pm each Thursday, Friday and Saturday and Sunday, an experience never to be forgotten.

“The films are now available to book on the website, and the film days are themed, with Thursdays being historic films, Friday’s music night, Saturday classic favourites and Sunday as ‘date night’ films.

“Gates will open at 3.30pm for the matinee and 7.30pm for the evening film, to allow ample time to park and settle-in, in readiness.

“In addition on selected showings, entertainment in the form of roving entertainers and live performances will add another unique dimension to these special evenings. And the all-important toilet facilities will be set a minimum of two metres apart and comply with all social distancing and hygiene regulations, with hand sanitisers both inside and out and a distanced queuing system in place.

“Set in the tranquil Loxwood Meadows, this is the perfect way to have a unique night out and be confident of staying safe. The dates for the showings are July 9 to 22 with a matinee and evening showing each day.
