This summer in Peterborough, movie-lovers will be able to visit the East of England Arena for a drive-in cinema experience.

On Friday, August 21, people can book tickets for the classic Groundhog Day at 1pm, last year's star-studded murder mystery Knives Out at 4.45pm, and an 80s vs 90s Drive-In Party from 8.30pm.

The offerings on Saturday, August 22, include Pretty Woman at 1pm, the iconic Back to the Future at 5pm and Drive-In Club Classics at 8.30pm.

To round out the weekend, Sunday, August 23 has showings of Disney's original animated version of The Lion King at 1.45pm, Dirty Dancing at 5.15pm and last year's critically acclaimed Joker at 9pm.

Spaces are limited, so tickets should be booked quickly. Food and drink should be brought to the venue, as nothing will be on sale on site so that contact remains minimal.
