Driving north – Drive-in cinema in the Netherlands
The Amsterdam open-air cinema season has drawn to a close for this year ending with a spectacular drive-in event in the city. Over 8 days spectators were treated to a diverse selection of films including ‘Blues Brothers’ and ‘Thelma & Louise’ all shown on a giant 12 x 6m (40′ x 20′) inflatable movie screen.
There were over 60 cars in attendance as well as a large number of walk-in audience members who came by foot or in true Amsterdam style by bike. Guests were not only treated to blockbuster films but also DJ’s ensured that the musical atmosphere was equally as exciting for those in attendance long after the film was over. Guests didn’t even need to get out of their cars to pick up refreshments, but instead ordered whatever they desired via SMS from the comfort of their cars and their food and drink was delivered straight to their vehicle.

Reflections After Dark
Drive-In with AIRSCREEN
Iconic, nostalgic, romantic.
Since 1933 drive in cinema has been a unique and charming way to watch the latest films. The first ever took place in the Camden Drive-in, New Jersey, USA. Ever since this moment the founding stones of car park romance were laid.
It did take a bit longer however, until the idea of the drive in really took off. The 1950’s were the boom years for the drive in with the convertible cars and Cadillac’s lining up in front of the screen to watch James Dean and his superiors.
And the reason as to why the drive in is still as popular as ever? Freedom. In your own car you can do what you want, in comparison to contemporary multiplex cinemas. You can bring your own snacks, smoke cigarettes and turn the sound up as loud as you like as the sound comes direct through your car radio. Enjoy the beauty of Hollywood without in your own space.
But as in line with drive-in of the past, one of the best reasons to go to the drive in cinema is to go with your partner. Where else can you have a relaxing and entertaining evening out in your own chair?
All that you need in order to start your very own drive-in cinema is space. Everything else you could possibly need is provided by AIRSCREEN and their sales and rental partners. With an inflatable screen any space can be turned into a drive-in with very little time and effort. Start your drive-in and profit from many years of experience from the world’s original inflatable screen company, AIRSCREEN.
