Drive into Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds from Wednesday 27 May and you’ll be greeted by New Zealand’s largest portable LED screen, playing an epic line up of recent releases and old classics, thanks to AA Smartfuel and Events company, Campbell+Co.
AA Smartfuel’s Drive in Cinema is set to be the biggest and best outdoor cinema experience for Kiwis to enjoy as they come out of lockdown and with 23 sessions across 10 days and films like Joker, The Notebook, Jojo Rabbit and Frozen II, there is something for everyone.
Coming in hot off the back of the move to Level 2, the question on everyone’s mind, has been what is there to do, in Level 2. After spending weeks at home, Kiwis across the country are desperate to get out, while adhering to the ‘new normal’. This is where the AA Smartfuel Drive in Cinema was born, says Vinny Sherry, Director of Campbell+Co.
‘We’re creating a fun environment where people can enjoy an afternoon movie or night out with friends and family, all while strictly following Level 2 rules. The Drive In Cinema ticks all the boxes, you can leave home and watch your favourite movie, eat delicious food, all from the safety and comfort of your own vehicle. Every step of the process is contactless and with all tickets and food and beverage purchases made online, we have contract tracing covered too.’
Where The Drive In differs from your usual cinema experience, is you won’t have to leave your car. AA Smartfuel ambassadors will show you to a pre allocated parking space, and if you’ve ordered food, it will be delivered contactless – directly to your car window.
No cinema experience would be complete without treats. The good people at New Zealand’s favourite burger restaurant, Burger Burger, have put together a delicious special menu of their famous burgers, fries, shakes and more, with Ben & Jerry’s delivering a delicious range of dessert options and other snacks available on the night.
AA Smartfuel is excited to be bringing some fun and excitement back into the community after the challenges of recent months. “There’s something special about drive-In movies, something nostalgic. AA Smartfuel’s Drive In Cinema offers Aucklanders the perfect way to get out of the house and enjoy some fun and entertainment, in a totally safe way.” Says AA Smartfuel CEO Scott Fitchett.
