About EIFF and Unique Events present: Drive In Movies - CANCELLED

Due to the current Covid-19 protection level in the Edinburgh area, we have made the difficult decision to cancel November's Drive In Movies event.


Edinburgh International Film Festival and Unique Events, the team behind the capital’s successful ‘Film Fest in the City’ outdoor cinema events have teamed up with Edinburgh Airport to produce a new monthly event for cinema fans throughout the rest of 2020.

The film loaded weekends, programmed by the EIFF team, will see four screenings a day starting with a ‘Drive-In Kids Club’ at 10am, Family Favourites in the afternoon, an evening Blockbuster and a late-night screening of Cult Classics for grown-ups. There will be special Halloween and Christmas screenings and activities in October and December. The films will be shown on a state of the art 100sqm LED screen, one of the largest mobile screens in the world with the audio broadcast straight to car radios, for audiences to control the soundtrack.

Pre-film activity will help to keep people entertained before the movie starts with on-screen movie quizzes, car discos, competitions and give-aways. Cinema food and snacks will be available to order and purchase pre-event and collected on arrival at the event, along with a selection of quality local food suppliers on-site to support local businesses.

With cars parked 2m apart Edinburgh's Drive-In Movies will be a safe environment for families and friends to enjoy an event, in line with government guidelines for outdoor events. Standard tickets are expected to be priced at £35.00 per vehicle for up to 5 people, with a number of tickets being made available to EIFF’s community partners. Films will be captioned where possible.

HALLOWEEN SPECIAL (29th Oct – 1st Nov): a packed programme of classic scary movies featuring Ghostbusters, The Lost Boys, Jaws, Halloween and much more, plus ghoulish prizes in our huge interactive quiz and spookiest Halloween costumes, along with fright-filled singalongs before the film!

NOVEMBER (26th – 29th): more outdoor movie magic with blockbusters Back to the Future, Rocketman, Mamma Mia, and more!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for EIFF and Unique Events present: Drive In Movies - CANCELLED are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
