Want to go to the movies during Covid? We’ve got just the thing – drive in movies are making a comeback in 2020!
If you’re too young to remember going to the drive in, think of it as enjoying a movie on the big screen, from the comfort of your own car. A number of Joburg venues have reinstated the drive in as a fabulous form of entertainment that’s ideal for social distancing.
