driveinmovie400The sell-out Sunset Boulevard Drive-In Movies event is set to return with a week of Hollywood blockbusters next month, including a Halloween Fright Fest, all at a new location in Northwood.

Tickets have gone on sale for a total of 12 movies both in the afternoon and in the evening, which can be enjoyed in American style from the comfort of your own car with audio fed through your vehicle’s sound system.

The all-weather event sold out back in June when the inaugural nights were held at Amazon World in Newchurch. Due to popular demand, a larger location has been sought with the event now moving to the County Showground in Northwood.
