Moonlight Drive In owner Scott Mackin said:
“Tickets are selling really well! They are going out as more people here about what’s coming to Southport this Christmas.
“We first had the idea two years ago during the Covid pandemic, on a different site.
“Unfortunately the Government then brought in the Tier system of restrictions, and we thought it was too big a risk to go ahead with it back then.
“But there was huge interest in the idea so we are delighted to be staging it now! We had done all the planning so thought we would try again.
“We approached the Southport Flower Show and Victoria Park Events General Manager Alan Adams about staging the cinema drone-in at Victoria Park and he was delighted by the idea. He has been really supportive of the event.”
The reaction to news of a drive-in cinema in Southport has been really positive.
Scott said: “The response has been really, really positive since we announced it!
“People love the idea, they are looking forward to trying something new and exciting this Christmas.
“We have 16 films that people can choose from now, but we have also left some spaces in the calendar in case some films become really popular and more people want to see them. We don’t want to see anyone miss out.
“Home Alone, Elf and Frozen are proving to be really popular so far!
“We have a real mixture of films, lots of kids’ favourites, perfect for families, and movies which older audiences will love. We have the perfect Christmas movie for people of all ages.” Moonlight Drive In takes place at Victoria Park, Southport, 9th–18th December 2022.
