Drive In Rentals

Back Home

Bring back the drive in! Add a dash of nostalgia to your event by hosting this one-of-a-kind evening which will surely be remembered by all! During Covid-19, this is the best way to keep everyone safe in their own cars while still “gathering” people together to celebrate an end-of-year party or any other corporate occasion. This is also a popular choice for schools or other establishments wanting to raise funds.

Please note you may not host this event for profit unless it’s an internal fundraiser, and no tickets may be sold to the public via any online ticketing platform.

WE CAN DO DRIVE IN RENTALS FROM MONDAYS TO THURSDAYS ONLY.

Venue

Finding the venue for your drive-in cinema is your responsibility. We can do this at parking lots, fields or anywhere that cars can drive onto (we prefer a large, open grassy area if possible). Bear in mind that poles, trees and wires block the view so pay attention to these obstacles. For roughly 80 cars, we would need a total space of about 100m x 80m – less for less cars and more for more cars. We operate only in Cape Town or within 100km from Cape Town city centre, not further.

If you would like us to do a site visit before confirming with a venue, our fee for inspections is a non-refundable R500, payable upfront. Alternatively, we can chat and confirm via Whatsapp video.

Movie

We provide the movie and pay the license fee to show it to the public, however, each movie has different guidelines so we cannot guarantee that we may show any movie at all. It is therefore a good idea to give us at least three options in case your first choice is not approved. Getting license rights can take a few weeks too so the sooner you let us know your selection, the better and kindly note that we only apply for licensing once the 50% deposit has been paid. Please do not advertise the movie until you have confirmation from our side that the title has been approved.
