Following rapid growth, drive-in cinema specialist Nightflix is today announcing its sixth permanent drive-in location, at the heart of the new Prince Phillip Park development in Whitehill & Bordon in Hampshire.
The site will be open to the public on 15th July 2021, offering the local area a mix of beloved classics and new launch releases from the comfort of their own vehicles. It will occupy the former site of the Sandhurst Block, complete with the original clock tower for a striking backdrop to the silver screen.
The site will have capacity for 88 vehicles, and will run year round offering immersive and accessible viewing of everything from cult classics to the latest blockbusters. The site will also offer food and beverage provided by local businesses.
Nightflix CEO Ben Stonehouse says: “It’s an honour to be able to bring the uniqueness of a drive-in to another permanent site, and one which is set to be a real focal point for this brand-new town development. Drive-ins have cemented their place in people’s hearts over the past year and Nightflix is exceptionally proud to be making this a part of the Whitehill & Bordon new town development for future generations to enjoy and share with families and friends.”
James Child, Project Lead, Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company, adds: “We are very excited about the launch of this permanent drive-in cinema in the centre of the town. Nightflix is one of the country’s leading drive-in cinema operators using the latest technology to provide an immersive cinema experience. We look forward to the opening night and seeing residents and those in the surrounding areas coming to the town centre to enjoy a brilliant range of films.”
The drive-in site will sit alongside numerous other new developments in the town centre, which include the Shed, a restaurant and leisure hub, and the recently opened Everyone Active leisure centre with six lane swimming pool, fitness centre and studios which is located adjacent to The Shed. Further innovative and dynamic entertainment, leisure, health and retail facilities are in the development pipeline.
