With the world’s biggest outdoor screen, the Manchester Christmas Drive in is coming to Old Trafford football ground

The Manchester Christmas Drive in will be showing Elf, Home Alone, The Muppet Christmas Carol and Die Hard to thousands of people, over the course of three days at Old Trafford football ground. As well as the movie screenings, visitors can enjoy festive food including crepes, a swing BBQ and hot chocolate.

The Manchester Christmas Drive in was designed to replicate the traditional American drive-in cinemas from the 1950s. The event features the world’s biggest outdoor LED screen, measuring 100 square metres. All visitors have to do to enjoy the showing is tune in to the movie through the car radio.

On average, British movie-goers now pay £7.17 to see a film at the cinema, whereas tickets to the Manchester Drive-in are just £26 per car. A standard car of five people will pay only £5.20 per person. Visitors can bring their own food and drink or buy food from the German market inspired stalls.
