They are promising a movie extravaganza from July 19 to August 1 with films including A Knight’s Tale, Bohemian Rhapsody, Back to the Future, The Rocky Horror Show, Mamma Mia and How to Train your Dragon.

Spokeswoman Heather Joy said: “Proving that nights out, fun with the family and decadent meals out still exist, the Loxwood Drive-in Movies will be opening its gates for both matinee and evening performances, showing family favourites, sci-fi classics, musical blasts, romantic tear jerkers and a plethora of fun feel-good films, for young and old alike.

“Following its huge success last year, the big screen will be lighting up the Loxwood Meadow, with the excitement of the classic drive-in movie experience being reignited once again this summer. And, if you are more than ready for a socially distanced, safe night out, this spectacular American-style drive in movie extravaganza is going to turn your dream into a reality.

“And with sound being channelled through each individual in-car stereo system, the thrill just gets better and better with a selection of food and beverages available for delivery to your car.

“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, the food delivery service will enable you to text your order from your vehicle, and a Chevrolette will deliver it straight to your car.

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

“And, with safety and visitor comfort always a key priority, 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.

“Tickets must be booked in advance. Tickets for matinee performances are £20 which includes your vehicle plus three people; with tickets for evening performances at £30 to include your vehicle and two people. Additional persons in a vehicle are at £5 for the first additional person and £2.50 for each individual after.
