Let’s face it: regular cinemas always kind of sucked. Whether it was the exorbitantly expensive drinks and snacks, the permanently 16-year-old ushers or the totally hilarious people a few rows back who consider the act of watching a movie to be an interactive experience, they were possibly the worst place to actually enjoy a film.
And recently they’ve been off the cards for… well, you know why. And we’ve failed to muster a single tear to see the departure of paying 20 quid for a vat of post-mix Pepsi and a tiny bag of Maltesers, ushers with pictures of Dorian Grey in a closet somewhere and the prospect of sharing a room with 150 witless and graceless buffoons, who are now even more diseased than usual. Which is saying something.
What is coming back though, is really something that never should have left in the first place: drive-in cinemas. What better way to swan past all the traditional problems of cinemas and neatly swerve the new, faintly titanic problem of social distancing in a room full of people than loading up the car with an ice box full of goodies and reclining in the insulated, private sphere of your pride and joy? Well, that’s easy – if your pride and joy also happens to be one of these 10 cars.
