On Saturday 12 September, ‘The Library Presents’, in collaboration with Babylon ARTS, will host its first drive-in cinema event, providing Cambridgeshire residents with their big screen film fix, within the safety and comfort of their cars.

As part of the event, supported by and taking place at Lancaster Way Business Park, Ely, ‘The Library Presents’ will be screening three films for audiences and providing something for all the family; Moana (PG), The Hunger Games (12A) and drive-in classic – Grease (PG).

Claire Somerville, Chief Executive, Babylon ARTS said: “We are so pleased to be able to offer this exciting cinema experience whilst we continue to make plans to re-open the cinema at The Maltings.  It’s going to be a special event in Ely and we’re really looking forward to seeing everyone having a great time.”

For the true cinematic experience, Babylon ARTS is offering cinema snack packs, available for pre-order, and is encouraging participants to dress like their favourite characters from the films, for the occasion. Claire continue: “We’d love to see Moana’s, Maui’s, Pink Ladies and T-Birds as well as some classic cars at the event to truly make the day one to remember.”

Councillor Steve Criswell, Chairman of the Communities & Partnership Committee said: “I am delighted to see ‘The Library Presents’ are delivering their first Big Screen Drive-in Cinema event. The event will be offering a range of films for different audiences during the day and evening. Due to restrictions the team have had to find new ways to host their arts events and I am excited to see their first drive in cinema take place.”

The Drive-In Cinema will take place on Saturday 12 September. Tickets and snack packs can be purchased on the Babylon ARTS website
