Drive-in cinemas have made a comeback recently.
But the latest spin-off of this concept is a drive-in theatre.
The kykNET Atlantic Drive-in Theatre offers theatre fans the opportunity to celebrate the arts during the lockdown.
The Suidoosterfees and Atlantic Studios are staging a drive-in theatre festival from 4 to 15 November at Atlantic Studios in Montague Gardens.
The brand-new format sees audiences watching live shows on the big screen from the safety and comfort of their cars.
Productions are beamed onto the silver screen while being performed live on an outdoor stage. Mense will be able to follow the soundtrack in their cars by tuning in on an FM radio frequency. The drive-in events will comply with Covid-19 health protocols.
Shows to look forward to this week include Klopse Jol!, PJ Powers in Concert and comedian Marc Lottering.
Emo and Loukmaan Adams will join musical forces in Klopse Jol! with a Cape Malay choir, a minstrel group and a 10-piece band tonight.
Cape Town’s favourite funnyman Marc Lottering will perform his lagbol one-man show Lottering on Lockdown tomorrow night.
PJ Powers collaborates with the Tygerberg Children’s Choir on 14 and 15 November.
Tickets are available from R250 per car, and can be booked at Computicket.
Special packages are on offer to enable visitors from afar to share in top class entertainment. There are larney hotel packages from City Lodge, which include breakfast and entry to the drive-in theatre for two persons, as well as “roadhouse” dinner, available at R1 600.
