Bristol features as part of a national @TheDriveIn summer tour, which also includes Birmingham, Cardiff and London, with stand-up comedy, bingo and even a silent car disco before the movies start.

A huge outdoor LED screen will provide the visuals and sound will be broadcast straight to car radios, with screenings adhering to social distancing measures by ensuring cars are parked two metres away from each other.

Plus, snacks and drinks can be ordered using an app and delivered at a safe distance by waiters on roller skates, for an authentic drive-in feel.
