Just been to see 'Grease' at the drive in, what a fab night! Great picture & great sound, a real treat. Being able to order dominoes pizza to your (car) door made it that bit extra. Ok car broke down (seriously, stranded at the drive in) but hey we got to watch the start of pretty woman in the mean time so no real complaints there. Looking forward to coming back. Kym

You wouldn't even consider going to the cinema with a young baby, but a trip to the drive-in is perfect. The baby sleeps soundly in his car seat while we stretch out and relax in the comfort of our own space watching the latest blockbuster releases - and there's no annoying elbows from strangers using your arm rest! And if baby wakes up, he doesn't disturb anyone else. OK, the venue is a painted wall in an industrial estate with a porta-loo as the facilities, but it's dark so who cares! The sound quality is awesome (providing your car stereo is up to the job) and synchs well with the movie. Recommend getting there early so you're not parked at too much of a squint to the screen.

We went to see frozen on the 3rd of jan, my son hates the cinema as it's too loud and he loved it. Film was great quality and sound perfect through the radio!

The place itself is on an industrial state and looks nothing more than a painted wall with a porta loo and seperate hut but in the dark it's very effective.
Refreshments and dominos avaliable from the hut!
We are looking forward to the liverpool one opening in feb so we don't have to travel so far as we will defintely become regulars!

The location is industrial and basic and not at all a cinema experience. The food is ordered from Dominoes and although ordered at 9pm didn't arrive until 10.20pm and was yeuch! Lukewarm, stodgy and tasteless. The staff are young, inexperienced and brusque and as they say about the overall experience...... You get what you pay for! It may save a few pounds but it is so basic, food adds up to expensive and Just prays it doesn't rain
