Drive-in movies at Ashton Gate

Ashton Gate is delighted to confirm the four-night movie line-up as the stadium transforms into a drive-in cinema this summer.

We’ve teamed up with Skylight Cinema to offer a safe and enjoyable night out at the movies, with visitors enjoying family friendly films from the comfort and safety of their car in the Winterstoke Road car park.

The confirmed blockbuster films are:

Friday, July 24th 9.15pm: Anchorman

Saturday, July 25th 9:15pm: Cool Runnings

Friday, August 21st 9pm: Mamma Mia!

Saturday, August 22nd 9pm: Grease

With four blockbusters available to watch, you can now enjoy live music, comedy and dance too.

Kicking off the series of movies on Friday July 24th, Anchorman will follow an exclusive set from local comedians Mark Olver and Jarred Christmas for an evening of laughs.

The following night sees the winner of a recent social media vote, Cool Runnings. But before you kiss your lucky egg and enjoy the film, you will be treated to a live DJ set from Paul Alexander, otherwise known as Soultrain. We guarantee you will be dancing in your seats.

Into August, the stadium is treating you to two nights of classic musicals. First of the two, on Friday August 21st, sees Mamma Mia take to the big screen. Before the film, there will be 70s DJ set from DJ Dave from Brunel Events, along with an electric performance from local dance troupe, Streetenvy Dance & Fitness Academy.

“We are super excited to be performing again for the first time since lockdown began in March, especially at such a great venue and mega event in our local community” Streetenvy Director, Simon Barton said.

Finally, on Saturday August 22nd, awesome vocalist Shalana Serafina kicks the evening off before the last film of the series, Grease! Shalana will be treating you to some 50 and 60s classics, as well as some Postmodern covers. T Bird and Pink Ladies jackets optional…

The cost is £25 per car, with packages available online by clicking here from Friday, July 3rd at 10am.

Doors open two hours in advance. With a host of additional entertainment available before the “main event”, movie-goers will be able to park up, order drinks and food and relax in their cars in front of a 10m wide inflatable screen with in-car Bluetooth speaker technology to enable best audio quality possible.

Please note, cars will be parked according to size and there is a limit to six people per vehicle.
