Mov'In Car Drive-In Cinema
Entertainment Quarter's rooftop carpark is turning into a pop-up drive-in.
May 17, 2020
UPDATE, JULY 17, 2020: Mov'In Car's Sydney season wraps up on Sunday, July 18 with screenings of the Dev Patel-starring Slumdog Millionaire (at 5.30pm) and the original Paranormal Activity (at 8.30pm) — and with free ice creams and bottomless popcorn for everyone who attends. The snacks are included in the ticket price for these two films only, and can be obtained from the bar on the night.
It has been more than five years since Australia's most ambitious outdoor cinema held its first Sydney pop-up, letting movie lovers catch a flick under the stars while getting cosy in one of its beds (yes, beds). Of course, that's not a setup that suits these COVID-19 times, so Mov'In is adapting. Sydneysiders, meet Mov'In Car — a pop-up drive-in coming to Entertainment Quarter.
This new version of Mov'In will make its debut on Friday, May 28, then run right through until Sunday, July 18 — all on Entertainment Quarter's carpark rooftop. Films will screen from Wednesday–Sunday weekly, with one movie on Wednesdays (at 6.30pm, with gates open at 5.30pm) and two showing on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (at 5.30pm, with gates at 4.45pm; and at 8.30pm, with gates at 7.40pm).
You know how a drive-in works, of course, so all you need to do is grab a few friends, jump in the car and prepare to get comfy while catching some flicks. Lineup-wise, it all kicks off with a retro session of Grease — and from there you can choose from recent movies like Joker, Knives Out and Jojo Rabbit, or opt old favourites such as Dirty Dancing, The Notebook, both parts of Kill Bill, Scream and multiple Harry Potter movies.
There'll also be snacks, food and beverages available to buy. It's not BYO so you'll have to purchase all food and drinks inside.
And, if you're wondering how much it'll set you back, tickets for a car with one or two people cost $49.90, while you can bring up to five people for a cost of $59.90.
Also, Mov'In Car is dog-friendly, although your pet pooch will need to stay in your car.
