Drive-in movies for Harbour Town

06 Dec 2016

Drive-in movies for Harbour Town Image

Drive-in cinema comes to Harbour Town on Boxing Day, as part of a new venture by local entrepreneurs The Backlot Studios.

Principals Tony Ianiro and Mark D’Angelo have already brought “pop-up” style cinema to neighbouring Southbank, but the revival of the “drive-in” concept is a first for the inner-city.

The roof of the Harbour Town car park is the venue for the new venture, with the site divided into two 65-car “fields”.

Backlot says it will showcase first-release films, encompassing all genres, via staggered evening sessions across two giant, state-of-the art raised screens.

Sound will be broadcast to vehicles via restricted FM transmitters. And for those without a car, there will be an intimate “blue-deck” seating area with sound received through headphones provided by the venue.

Tickets will be available to purchase online via Veezi or at the venue.

The Backlot founders said: “We aren’t reinventing the wheel as drive-ins have operated in Australia for decades. The objective of The Backlot Rooftop Drive-in was to manufacture a model for cinemagoers whereby such an offering could be introduced to major inner-cities with Melbourne Docklands being the first.”
