Drive-In Cinema At Ally Pally

Anyone who’s ever fancied the full American drive-in cinema experience need not venture outside of the M25, as the Drive-in Film Club returns.

From 31 March to 11 April, the clever people behind Rooftop Cinema will transform the Pavilion Car Park at Alexandra Palace into a drive-in cinema, the only one in London. Complete with waiter service snack menu, it’s the ultimate lazy night out at the flicks.

We’re sensing a vaguely automobile-esque theme, with films on show including Rush and Fast & Furious 6. If you’re not an action film fan, quell your inner romantic with About Time, or laugh it all off at Anchorman 2.

Grease is shown not once, but twice, as it’s bound to be popular. We’re wondering how many re-enactments of that stretch-yawn-reach scene will take place. Corny move or perfect disguise? You decide.

As well as the classics, there are some hot-off-the press films being screened, including the Oscar-winning Gravity.

Films are shown at 8pm every night 31 March-11 April (7.45pm on 6 April), excluding 5 April. Tickets are £22 per car and can be bought here.

From 15-27 April, the Drive-In Cinema heads slightly further west, pitching up at Brent Cross. Many of the same films are on offer here, as well as The Butler and Dirty Dancing. Tickets are still £22 per car, and can be bought here.
