We were invited to indulge in movie nostalgia at the launch of  The Eastgate Drive-In. The last time we stepped foot into a movie cinema was December 2019 so it was a refreshing welcome to enjoy a movie. 

Eastgate Shopping Centre launched  The Eastgate Drive-in situated on the center’s rooftop.

Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday starting from 1 April to 1 May 2021 with two screenings per evening at 6pm and 8pm.

For their premiere weekend, there was a combination of movie magic from classics like Jumanji and E.T. to modern-day marvels like  The Greatest Showman.

We went to the screening of Ice Age, something Adriana had not watched before. She was excited that we’d be watching a movie in our car.

So how exactly does it work?

Movies for The Eastgate Drive-In are voted for on the Eastgate Facebook page.

Tickets are book through Quicket.   You show your ticket at the entrance and you are shown to a designated spot.  Booking is essential as there is a limit to 100 cars.

It’s R250 per car and you receive complimentary popcorn.

For additional snacks, you can order slush and more popcorn at the kiosk at the back.

What I thought is pretty cool are the options to order food. You are given a list of four restaurants, Cloud Dine, Spur, Steers and Debonairs.  Once your order is ready, it is brought to the demarcated collection areas. You need to wear a mask and keep a  safe distance.

As an outing, this scores 10 out of 10 for us. We had a great time out! It’s definitely something the whole family can do and even a date night idea.

We’ll definitely be back again.
