The first movie to be screened will be The Avengers at 8pm on July 1.

The movies that will follow include Crazy Rich Asians (July 2), Grease (July 6) and for all you Frozen fans out there, catc the first installment on July 3 and Frozen II on July 10.

A full schedule of movies and timings for the month of July can be found here.

For snacks, you’ll be spoilt for choice as there are 17 different outlets at the Zad food district, serving up popcorn, burgers, sushi and vegan snacks.

You can either visit the new drive-thru food precinct prior to entering the cinema, or you can order online via the dedicated website here. The meal will be delivered right to your car in a contactless and safe way.

The drive-in is taking all the necessary precaution to keep things safe for movie-goers and all current and future government guidelines with regard to social distancing and safety will be strictly adhered to.
