Here’s what’s playing at the drive in movie theatre during August.

Order your cinema goodies such as cheese dogs and popcorn via The Drive In website and get set for an epic comedy line-up with movies from this genre including the brilliantly funny Bad Boys for Life starring Will Smith, all-new Sonic The Hedgehog, comedy classic Sister Act and chick-flick favourite Bridget Jones’s Diary. Don’t also miss the South Korean black comedy thriller Parasite, American mystery/comedy Knives Out and more.

Drama

If you’re a drama fan, movies that might take your fancy include the tragic tale of friendship Blue Story, World War 1 hit 1917, psychological thriller Joker, Fleabag Live from the National Theatre, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and many more. Come back to enjoy the drive-in experience of Quentin Tarantino classic Reservoir Dogs and The Bodyguard starring Whitney Houston.

Musicals
