In true American style, the capital prepares for the inauguration of the Spain's first drive-in cinema open all year. For now it is under construction, but we can already see a video and several images about the project that has received the green light from the Madrid City Council.
Exporting a Yankee tradition
Although on the other side of the pond is a business that is in the doldrums, the promoters of Drive-in Madrid They hope to sell all the tickets at least every weekend. In fact, for now we do not know if they will open only on weekends or will also be accessible during the week.
A space for romanticism
It will have a capacity for 350 vehicles. The occupants of the same will be able to enjoy the best cinema without leaving the car on an area of 25,000 square meters where there will be everything. For starters, a huge 250-square-meter screen that shouldn't be cheap. The projection will be state-of-the-art digital and the sound will be emitted from the car's own speakers, forcing a radio station to tune in to find out what the protagonists are saying.
Located in the area of Chamartín-Fuencarral, with the Torres Kio in the background, Autocine Madrid will have a restaurant area with up to four foodtrucks. It's early to say what kind of food they will serve, but seen in the promotional video there will be no lack of sushi, hamburgers, fries or hot dogs. In addition, there will also be a kiosk with a terrace and up to 150 deckchairs to enjoy the movie outdoors, a highly recommended option considering how overwhelming it can be to spend two hours in a car watching a movie.
Movies of now and forever
As far as programming is concerned, they announce variety. We will see classics and the latest billboard releases. That means we can feel like Danny Zuko and Sandy Olson in Grease, although surely we will not do it in a convertible of the time.
