Wallis Cinema’s Mainline Drive In Reopens | Gepps Cross | 29 May 2020

Wallis Cinema’s Mainline Drive In will reopen on Friday 29 May 2020

Mainline Drive In, located in Gepps Cross, closed their gates during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, but with restrictions easing they are now able to reopen.

Social distancing won’t be a problem when you are confined to your car, but still out in open space.  If going to the Candy Bar or toilets remember to observe all social distancing rules by staying at least 1.5 metres away from anyone else and make sure you wash your hands or have hand sanitiser in your car.

  • Friday 29 May 2020 | Sonic the Hedgehog (PG) 6.30pm & Bloodshot (M) 9.15pm
  • Saturday 30 May 2020 |  Jumanji: The Next Level (PG) 6.30pm & The Invisible Man (MA) 15+ 9.30pm

What to bring to the Family Flix drive in movies:

Pack the car with pillows, blankets and movie snacks to make yourself as comfortable as possible. 

Bring a picnic basket from home with an easy dinner or pick up something such as a roast chicken, fish & chips or your favourite take-away on the way there. There is also a cafe located inside the drive-in that sells snacks, popcorn, ice-creams, drinks and hot food. 

Be sure to rug up on chilly nights as your car engine will be turned off. The movie is broadcast over a local radio channel (our car kept turning itself off during the film!) so we recommend bringing a portable radio. The kids can even go dressed in their pyjamas so they’re ready for bed when you get home!

Cars with rear hatches that open right up such as SUV’s and station wagons are ideal – kids love piling into the back with sleeping bags, pillows and bean bags. 

Remember you are allowed to take the family dog too!
