 Drive In Film Club’s October programme has landed, with a spine-tingling array of Halloween classics, bold new blockbusters and a sprinkling of special events for the perfect socially distanced night out. From the team behind London’s favourite sky-high cinema – Rooftop Film Club, audiences can take to their cars from 12th October for a spooktacular cinematic experience and soak up the atmosphere at Drive In Film Club’s iconic site at Alexandra Palace.

With showings of The Shining on Tuesday 27th and Relic on Halloween night (31st), you’ll be on the edge of your seat. Trick or treating may be off the cards, but family screenings of Hocus Pocus, Casper and Ghostbusters are the perfect excuse to dress up for a ghoulishly fun family outing this October half term. For those really keen to get in the Halloween spirit, throughout October, audiences are challenged to dress up their cars for the chance to win £250 cash and a 1-year Rooftop Film Club membership in their Spook My Ride competition. The spookier the car the better with full competition details available here.

For those missing outings to London’s theatres, Thursday 15th October brings a double whammy of treats. Catch a 5.30pm showing of the National Theatre’s award-winning hit Fleabag, written and performed by the incredible Phoebe Waller Bridge followed by a show-stopping screening of Escape from Pretoria, alongside a live Q&A with director Francis Annan.

The place to be, Drive In Film Club’s cinematic cauldron is brewing something for everyone this month. Experience movie magic with family favourites such as Back to the Future, Home Alone and Matilda, while love potions are in the air for snuggle up showings of Notting Hill and Grease. Drive In Film Club is also offering a host of spectacular new hits such as Robert Pattinson’s eerie performance in The Lighthouse and the tear-jerking screening of Rocks.

For fans of cult classics, dedicated directors’ days have arrived with Quentin Tarantino’s True Romance and Pulp Fiction showing on October 18th while Wes Anderson’s rainbow of cinematic colours dazzle the big screen on October 22nd with The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Royal Tenenbaums screenings.
