Norfolk Showground to host Halloween drive-in cinema event

Some of the scariest movies ever made are to be screened in Norwich as a popular drive-in movie venue returns.

Following on from the success of their Summertime Social event, Pop-Up pictures is returning to the Norfolk Showground from October 29 to November 1.

Danny Banthorpe, 47, founder of Pop Up Pictures, said: “We found this was the safest option and the Summertime Social event went very well.

“On Thursday and Friday there will be teatime screenings for the families but then later on in the evening there are films which are not for the faint-hearted.

“For Saturday and Sunday, there will be films for the kids during the day and then the horror films will be screened in the evening.

There will be three street food trailers and a snack shack which will all have a one-way system to ensure the event stays compliant with Covid regulations.

Mr Banthorpe said: “We invested in an LED screen so that now we can show in the daytime as opposed to waiting for the sun to go down.

“We are hoping to hire another screen so that people aren’t waiting for spaces, they can drive in and get comfortable.

“The price will be £20 per car for the family-friendly films and up to £23.50 for the films shown in the evening.

Tickets will be available soon on the Facebook event.
