Earlier this month the government confirmed that drive-in cinemas can reopen from June 15.

Suzuki’s @TheDriveIn will be coming to 12 cities around the country between July and October – including Southampton and Brighton.

Time Out London reports that the plan is to set up an LED screen and for cars to be parked two-metres apart, as per social distancing advise.

There will be a food-delivery app so that visitors can enjoy snacks and drinks with the movies, orders will be delivered by ‘roller-waiters’.

The drive-in cinema will also have other entertainment such as silent car discos, bingo and stand-up comedy.

Here is the full list of films and when they are being shown in Southampton:

- Grease (PG) – Thursday, September 24 – 6pm

- Back to the Future (PG) – Friday, September 25 – 6pm

- Toy Story (PG) – Saturday, September 26 – 2pm

- Joker (15+) – Saturday, September 26 – 6pm

- Lion King (PG) – Sunday, September 27 – 2pm

- A Star is Born (15) – Sunday, September 27 – 6pm

Tickets start at £38.50 per car and can be purchased here – but you have to be quick because they are selling fast.

The exact location of where the drive-in cinema will be in Southampton has yet to be confirmed.
