Fasten your seatbelt, bring the popcorn and grab the family and get ready to be entertained in a special way this December.
Classic Drive-in Cinema is returning to Westport next month with some Christmas movie specials, starting off with The Santa Clause starring Tim Allen, followed by Home Alone starring Macaulay Culkin, at Westport Bulls Rugby pitch located at Carrowholly.
The special Christmas shows are pencilled in to take place on Thursday, December 10, provided Government Level 5 Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted.
Freshly made popcorn, nachos pick and mix sweets can also be pre-ordered online with your ticket from Ticketweb. One ticket covers everyone in your car. Tickets are priced from €27.50.
“Due to the current restrictions surrounding Covid-19, a lot of traditional Christmas events and experiences that have ran in the past may not be able to operate this year,” said a spokesperson for Classic Drive-In Cinema.
“Furthermore this event is Covid friendly as you arrive in your car, stay in your car and leave in your car. It makes the perfect family night out and date night … you can even bring the dog!
“After a very tough and difficult year for a lot of people, our mission is to bring the magic of Christmas into people’s lives this festive season anyway we can whilst also acting as a fundraiser for the local rugby club. To show our thanks, appreciation and hard work from our frontline heroes, we will also be offering them complimentary tickets for this event. Tickets are limited and need to be requested in advance as capacity is limited,” added the spokesperson.
