Prepare for a scare as Drive In Film Club is back this October at the iconic Alexandra Palace

The ultimate open-air film experience, Drive In Film Club’s October programme has landed. From the team behind London’s favourite sky-high cinema – Rooftop Film Club, Dive In offers sunset  film screenings under the stars using state of the art projectors, all paired with the best food and drink! 

Audiences can take to their cars from 12th October for a spooktacular cinematic experience and soak up the atmosphere at Drive In Film Club’s iconic site at Alexandra Palace.

This October they offer a spine-tingling array of Halloween classics, bold new blockbusters and few special events for the perfect socially distanced night out! 

Trick or treating might be off the cards, but family screening of Hocus Pocus, Casper and Ghostbusters are the perfect excuse to dress up for a ghoulishly fun family outing this October half term. 

For those really keen to get in the Halloween spirit, throughout October, audiences are challenged to dress up their cars for the chance to win £250 cash and a 1-year Rooftop Film Club membership in their Spook My Ride competition. The spookier the car the better! 

Or if you prefer a Halloween full of horror, showings of The Shining on Tuesday 27th and Relic on Halloween night (31st), will have you on the edge of your seat!  

The place to be, Drive In Film Club has something for everyone this month and all from the safety, security and comfort of visitors’ own car. 

Once they arrive, movie-goers will be met by a giant 40-foot LED screen, film audio can be picked up through local FM stereo in the car, or guests can bring a portable radio if they prefer.
Guests also have the option to bring their own snacks and drinks or choose to order from concessions on-site. All orders are made online and will be dropped off outside customers’ car doors. Concession items include hotdogs from Popdogs, popcorn, chocolate and drinks. 

Tickets to the Drive In Film Club start from £27.50 per car plus booking fee, regardless of occupancy (cars, SUVs and 4x4s only). Pricing varies per showing dependent on time.
