Social Distancing Drive-in Cinema in the UK

For all of you movie lovers, if you’re in the UK and would like to watch a movie but are still minding the social distancing measurements, don’t you worry as the Social Distancing Drive-in Cinema is currently open for business and is welcoming you to visit, relax and watch your favourite movie from the comfort of your own vehicle. Book your tickets at the bottom. 

The 10x12m structure was designed and built by WCE-AV, headed by Managing Director Wayne Whitson, using Prolyte’s very own LED screen support system. The building of the structure started on the 27th of July with the help of Delta crewing’s manpower and is up and running in full speed now. 

"We had to work closely with the team at Prolyte and Stage Electrics to modify our 10m Structure to a 12m Structure in a short space of time. The Drive-In scenario poses the problem of the Base Height of the Screen needs to be over 4.5m for everyone to see easily but at the same time a Screen surface of 12m x 6m being used for showing the films.”- Wayne Whitson.

 Wayne added "Putting the work in and the consultation process with Prolyte means we are now able to deploy structures this size for outdoor events.  We had great summer plans lined up for LED & Structure which obviously got hit by Covid-19. In a way, this event has been a way to utilize and make use of the stock we have in house ranging from B100, H40V, H30V and Verto Truss.”

“It is always refreshing to work with partners who continuously support and surprise us with their creativity in making a dire situation fun yet safe for the public with this Drive-in Cinema. We at Prolyte look forward to their next creative event with us.“ - Eddie Slotboom.

The Drive-in cinema is located in Dairyland Farm Park, Newquay, Cornwall, UK and is running from the 29th of July till the 31st of August.

“Newquay Drive-In at Dairyland is delighted to have such an impressive screen to show films. It has enabled us to have screenings during the day and not just in the evening, which has extended our operating hours, unlike other local operations. The supply and set-up of the screen were handled impressively by WCE-AV. Fast, efficient and friendly team.” Ashton Bentley CEO Roger Vinton and director Tony Leedham.
