    some of the films are classics, and i thought pretty good films. it might be that these films were even shot at pinewood studios, one of the main film studios in the UK/London eg. the amazing Bond movie sets.

    costs £35-55 per car, up to 4 people in car.

    Doing this at M and D's Theme park aswell in stratchclyde. What would you do if it was raining that night.

    "For its special winter series of Drive-In movies, Pinewood has temporarily transformed its unique outdoor water filming facility into the world’s largest cinema screen, sized 73.1M wide x 18.3M in height."

    I got an email bout this.
    Really fancied doing it as it was something different but i thought the films were pretty rubbish and def not worth paying £35-£55 for so decided against it

    do you mean rubbish because it's not a hollywood blockbuster?

    you do know the difference between dvd quality and for a screen projection that size you'll have to have a super duper FILM projector, not DVD projector. think about it a 35mm-75mm size film frame to fill the screen that size – film resolution beats HD anyday!

    plus £35 for 4 adults is cheaper than going to the usual cinema in your private enclosed booth ...

    and may i add, kubrick is a genius. they just don't make films/stories like these lot anymore.

    If you get four adults in a car the ones in the back will be staring at the back of a headrest :w00t:

    Wasn't aware i was a film critic now :whistling:

    That is MY opinion.
    I meant there were no films there that I am bothered about seeing (again)!

    Again another good point!
    So it would work out a LOT more expensive (than going to the cinema), going with only TWO of you.
    ANOTHER reason i decided against it!
    Why would i pay £17.50 or £27.50 to go see a film i'm not bothered about seeing??

    we get it you don't wanna go cos your cheap, the films are rubbish and you can;t work how four people would see the film in a car...................oh well, you will be missed :roll:

    I wouldn't say the films are rubbish but I wouldn't want to see them at a drive-in, I think M&D's have a better Halloween selection both for adults and kids and alot cheaper.
