Long before social distancing was on anyone's radar — especially when heading out to see a movie — drive-in theatres were ahead of the game. When you're watching a film in your car with only your friends and family in the same vehicle, you're instantly keeping away from other patrons. Accordingly, it's hardly surprising that the concept is attracting plenty of interest during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Enter the Drive-In Movie Club, a pop-up that's setting up its big screen at a secret Melbourne location for four nights. From Thursday, July 23–Sunday, July 26, it'll play beloved retro films while attendees get cosy in their cars with their nearest and dearest.

Showing one movie per night, it all kicks off with Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Then, the laughs keep going with Mean Girls — and, although it isn't screening on a Wednesday, you can obviously still wear pink. For Saturday night dates, Dirty Dancing will hit the screen. Finally, finishing off the short season is Back to the Future (so if you happen to have a DeLorean handy, prepare to exclaim "great Scott!" a whole heap).

Tickets cost $35 per car, which covers up to five people. You can also spend an extra $20 per person and have snacks — a drink, popcorn and candy — brought to your vehicle.
