A NEW drive-in cinema is hoping to open after lockdown restrictions are eased this summer.

TheDriveIn will be playing 80s classics and more recent blockbusters films preceded by a range of entertainment that includes stand up comedy, bingo or silent car discos.

And NHS key workers can attend for free.

The company says they have got 10 free car spaces at each event reserved for the people who 'deserve a break the most'. 

The retro experience will see the sound broadcast straight to your car’s radio, while you watch the film on a giant LED screen.

Food and snacks will be available to order online through a mobile app and, in true 50s drive-in fashion, roller waiters will bring your order to a drop off point by your car.

A spokesman added: "This will be a safe environment to spend the evening. 

"Cars parked over 2m apart will provide naturally built-in social distancing, and there will be extra measures in place to ensure the experience is in line with government guidelines.

"Entry will be via licence plate checking, meaning no interaction between staff and guests is necessary.

"Toilet facilities and strict hygiene measures in line with government guidelines will ensure a safe environment for all, providing not only a coronavirus-proof way of going out, but a rare opportunity to bring back a few hours of normal life."

The drive-in cinema is going on tour across the country with six shows per city including family-friendly afternoons to late night shows.

​Tickets will be released on May 27 with anyone interested urged to join the waiting list by clicking here. 

It will be in Manchester from July 16 to 19 and in Liverpool from August 13 to 16.

Exact locations have not yet been revealed.

Tickets are £35 per car.
