COVID-19 epidemic has dramatically changed the worlds orderly habits. Cinemas, a much loved past time for people of all ages, has come to a grinding and indefinite halt. This is why we thought it was essential to revolutionize the big screen experience, whilst adhering to the government guidelines for social distancing. Our outdoor cinema service is a great opportunity to entertain the masses, provide social services and also help to get those moping teens off the streets!
We support government measures to limit the spread of the Coronavirus, which is why our drive-in cinema experience is a wonderful and safe alternative to leisurely activities in the lockdown. Drive-in movie theaters are also a responsible and positive outlet for the community. Our ethos is to share our valuable knowledge of the drive-in cinema scene, as well as provide all the equipment needed to keep the show rolling, such as projectors, LED video walls and technical staff required. We want to encourage the use of this service not only recreationally, such as films and TV series marathons, but also for spiritual services that have been banned due to the pandemic with drive-in church setup. The time is finally here, to come together and support each other as a community. We’ve had meetings with the owners of car parks, shopping centers, cinemas and various local event companies to collaborate on this cinematic renaissance movement.
Are you in need of a communal gathering that adheres to social distancing rules? Somewhere to watch movies, play quizzes, attend church or even rock out to a concert, all from the comfort of your own car? All you need is to find the location, like an empty parking lot, and put some thought in to the distance each car will have from one another. A bonus would be to find an empty space near a white building, which could double as a screen for your projection.
In terms of technology for a drive-in cinematic experience, you will need a Projector, Screen, Audio and an FM-Transmitter. Classic films can be shown with a large-venue projector in an ambient light controlled environment or after sunset, where as more current blockbuster movies require a DCP projector as well as a DCP compliant media server. Copyright license may need to be acquired.
An LED Wall is a great alternative to the projector & screen setup. You won’t have to wait till dusk because LEDs are so bright that the video can look great even during the day. An outdoor LED wall allows for optimum flexibility in screening time, however such setup may require additional resources and copyright licensing may present a challenge.

It is common to use FM transmission to broadcast the sound to each individual car stereo to allow the audience the best sound quality possible. This can be done with the use of a FM-transmitter or as an alternative the video and/or audio program can be broadcasted over the Web.
We encourage feedback on improving our services, as well as any interest to collaborate or set up a drive-in cinema experience. Staying safe, is staying happy.
