Welcome to the World’s First Indoor Drive-in Cinema



 (The first of its kind in the World & all happening in West Sussex)

What it’s all about and how does it work?

We’re super excited to be bringing something new & exciting to the UK and a world first as well.

It’s simple, you drive into a huge and we mean huge barn, watch the film from your cars with food delivered to your cars as well. It really is the old school American Drive-in with a modern twist.

17 nights & 33 films covering all genres, including; Ladies Nights, car nights, 80’s films, modern films, musicals, adult horrors, kids Halloween films, Christmas films and more.

We’ve got a film for everyone, check out our website to see all the films we have this season.

                   It’s all happening at the South East’s largest event venue, being that of                                                  

The South of England Showground, West Sussex.


When bratty 8-year-old Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) acts out the night before a family trip to Paris, his mother (Catherine O'Hara) makes him sleep in the attic. After the McCallisters mistakenly leave for the airport without Kevin, he awakens to an empty house and assumes his wish to have no family has come true. But his excitement sours when he realizes that two con men (Joe Pesci, Daniel Stern) plan to rob the McCallister residence, and that he alone must protect the family home.


When you arrive our team will check tickets and get you checked in, you will then be placed in our queuing system ready for the entry process into the venue. Please make sure you adhere to the times set out for your screening.

Early arrival will mean you will have long periods of waiting without access to the food and drink stalls inside the arena. We want to make sure you all have the best time possible and so we ask and stress that adhering to the times outlined is crucial for your enjoyment.

At the same time it is very important that you arrive at least 30 minutes before the actual screening time of your film. Those arriving 20 minutes or less before the scheduled film start time, will not be allowed to enter and no refunds will be given for those arriving late.

Please arrive no more than 1hr 20minutes before your film starts and no less then 30 minutes to ensure you get into the arena to see your selected films

DOUBLE BILL SCREENINGS Friday, Saturdays & Sundays

The weekend of good times and great films starts here, Fridays, Saturdays & Sunday nights see’s us bringing double bill movie nights, just like US drive-in theatres use to and still do. That means if you really love cinema you can buy one of our double bill tickets for the two screenings on the same night.


Regarded as the South of England’s largest premier events venues, with over 160 acres of exhibition and event space, it also holds one of the largest buildings of its kind in the South and is the home for the World’s First Indoor Drive-in. Located in West Sussex and minutes from the M23 Motorway for easy access from all over the country. 


How it all works

How are Indoor Drive-in cinema works, on arrival you will be checked in and placed in the que ready to drive into our giant barn and we mean giant, your guided to your spot for the evening in either arena A or arena B depending on your position in the que on arrival. All our screenings are worked out on a first come first served basis due to the way we have to load cars in and turn them around between the two films each night.

Arena A is larger and holds double the number of cars of Arena B, so has a slightly larger screen to accommodate the increase in car numbers. Both arenas provide an excellent view and experience and have exactly the same HD 1080p cinema quality projection and equally great sound.

Once your parked up and your engine is off, sit back relax and wind down or up your windows and get ready for a great evening of film at the worlds first indoor drive-in cinema.



(Now it doesn’t get much easier than that now does it)

We’ve got you fully covered when it comes to food and drink, we’ve got excellent caterers on hand offering a wide selection of food and drink, all delivered to your cars if you so wish. We do not allow food and drink to be brought with you, please be aware of this.

Cinestock UK
Cinestock began in 2013 by two men with a seemingly impossible vision; to create a cinema in the middle of a field during the great British Summer time. Look how far we've come! We started with one event and ended our last season as the UK’s largest independent provider of Open Air & Drive-in Cinema events But the fun doesn't end there, this year our organisers have been busy ever-pushing the limits of local street-cinema and we are proud to present to you a season of amazing films. As well as world first event kind with these indoor drive-in cinema events.
