'10 Things I Hate About You' Valentine's Drive-In Screenings
This 90s flick is a cult favourite for a reason — and you can relive it all at the Yatala Drive-In this Valentine's Day.
January 12, 2023
It's now been 24 years since a certain modern-day retelling of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew had us all swooning over Heath Ledger and wishing we were Julia Stiles. Yes, that'll make you feel old. And if you're one of the scores of Aussie teens who devoured smash-hit flick 10 Things I Hate About You when it first came out — and then about a million times on VHS since — you've probably taken up every occasion there is to celebrate the 1999 movie.
Your next chance: Yatala Drive-In's Valentine's screenings — aka an excuse to hop in the car, head down the highway and revisit the timeless high school-set tale. Yatala's movies-on-wheels site is hosting two special throwback showings, which is perfect for you and your 90s-worshipping significant other — or a car full of pals (because you'll pay $40 for a carload of up to six people anyway).
Head along on the weekend prior to Valentine's Day, from 7pm on Saturday, February 11 — or on the date itself, from 7pm on Tuesday, February 14.
Prepare to revisit all those late-90s feels as you catch those classic movie moments — from the cheer-worthy smashing of Joey Donner's car to that pre-formal pregnancy suit. You can pack your own food for the session (Ms Perky would definitely recommend bratwurst), but BYO booze obviously isn't allowed. Otherwise, you can make the most of Yatala's 50s-style diner.
