Socially distanced cinema awaits at The Parking Lot Social.

Jet off to Glasgow Airport for your next night of fun-filled entertainment without any of the hassle or turbulence. Leave your luggage, 100ml toiletries and passport at home and instead enjoy an evening in front of a big screen at this drive-in.

The Parking Lot Social has arrived at Skyport Glasgow Airport Parking in Paisley, where you can kick back, put your feet up on the dashboard, and immerse yourself in some of the UK’s favourite films or take part in plenty of fun activities. Tickets are on sale now, but you can read on for more info.

Despite the latest lockdown restrictions, Glaswegians can still enjoy a relaxing evening in front of two 40ft screens in the comfort of their car with those in their household. During August and September, The Parking Lot Social is screening crowd-pleasing classics such as The Goonies, Mamma Mia and Grease, along with modern favourites like Joker and Mean Girls. The action kicks off before the opening titles start, too, as musical entertainment will be on hand to warm up the crowd before the film begins.

Plus, there are even some late night thrillers featuring on the big screen like Scream, The Lost Boys and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. All you’ve got to do is roll up and park, and enjoy all the magic that Hollywood has to offer. For retro vibes, The Parking Lot Social is also hosting an 80s night. So grab your neon leg warmers, as dress up is encouraged, and enjoy a night of 80s tunes, car-a-oke singalongs, followed by the screening of the iconic film of that decade, Dirty Dancing.

If you’re looking for some fun entertainment during the weekends with friends and family, The Parking Lot Socialoffers plenty of activities that you can take part in from the comfort of your car. Live DJs will be on stage playing your favourites and you can sing your heart out without any judgement (maybe just from those in the car). Despite many music festivals being cancelled this year, it doesn’t mean you should miss out on a silent disco. Put on your wireless headphones and enjoy the music selection.

If that’s not enough, get your pencils ready for bingo! You could be in for the chance of winning a prize! And if the numbers aren’t on your side, test your knowledge by taking part in the themed quizzes and competing against the entire crowd of cars to win some goodies.

All the necessary social distancing measures are in place; all cars will be parked two metres apart, tickets will be scanned through car windows, and the whole shebang is non-contact. You’ll be able to pre-order from a menu of classic drive-in cinema food too, with burgers, fries, and shakes all available for collection once you’ve arrived.

With dinner, entertainment and a film combined, all you need is the car and enough petrol, then you’ve got yourself a fabulous evening sorted.
