Häagen-Dazs presents The Drive-In from Secret Cinema is coming….
If you thought everything right now would stop the mighty Secret Cinema on their continually impressive re-inventions then, as you’ll see, you’ll be very wrong! With all of us really needing some positive to look forward to, the immersive storytelling pioneers, have announced the launch of a brand new event format for the Summer at Goodwood Motor Circuit: The Drive-In, which is in partnership with celebrated luxury ice cream brand Häagen-Dazs (who they’ve been working with through the lockdown on weekly experiences) as part of their new global campaign ‘Don’t Hold Back’.
The Drive-In by Häagen-Dazs will open at 7pm (BST) on Sunday 5th July with tickets on sale Monday 22nd June at 10am (BST) for the first two weeks. It will be presented at the historic Goodwood Motor Circuit and open with the aptly themed Rush – which depicts the rivalry between two of the greatest racing drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
The Drive-In presented by Häagen-Dazs is set to thrill audiences of all ages looking to find escapism in iconic and much loved films this summer, from the comfort of their own cars. Other titles from Disney, Lionsgate and StudioCanal include Moana, The Incredibles, Cars, Mary Poppins Returns, Zootropolis, Toy Story, The Hunger Games, Knives Out, Moulin Rouge, Star Wars, Dirty Dancing, Reservoir Dogs, Pretty Woman, Fight Club and American Psycho.
In true Secret Cinema style expect this to be a drive-in like no other, where the experience will revolve around the audience. The excitement begins as soon as you buy a ticket, as the audience is introduced to the wild and audacious Frankie and Johnny Starlight, who own the original travelling Drive In cinema. The pre-show online experience creates a narrative hub to introduce you to these host characters and provide tips on costume inspiration and car makeovers!
Each event will feature a 30 minute pre-screening performance, where Frankie and Johnny will co-host a live broadcast via portable JBL speakers directly into your car, where they’ll get the party started with film inspired tunes, interactive games. Dial into the pre-show Zoom party and they’ll put the best dressed, best dancers, most decked out car interior and most fun players up on the big screen.
The extended family of waiters and front of house team will be on hand to serve food from a specially-created menu inspired by the much-loved American Diner featuring Goodwood organic produce, and of course lots of ice-cream provided by headline partner Häagen-Dazs, with surprise and delight rewards and giveaways including exclusive flavours and products not sold anywhere else in the UK!
Of course, this series of events has been created within UK Government and Public Health guidelines and will adhere to social distancing measures that protect the wellbeing of its audience and performers. We LOVE IT.
Tickets go on presale on Saturday 20th June at 10.00am (BST) via O2 Priority and are available here from Monday 22 June at 10:00am (BST). Prices start at £50 per car.
