Disney+ Drive-In Cinema is coming to Bankwest Stadium

Toy story, The Lion King, Star Wars, Marvel and more… our 300 spot Northern Carpark at Bankwest Stadium will be much more than just a place for cars come this spring. It will be transformed into a family friendly COVIDSafe entertainment hub with the announcement that the Disney+ Drive-In Cinema is coming to Bankwest Stadium.

From 22 October until 15 November, the Bankwest Stadium Northern carpark will be home to all the Disney+ favourites from Walt Disney Pictures, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and Twentieth Century Fox. The Drive-In will operate for six nights a week over a four-week duration, with the program kicking off with Marvel Mondays, Star Wars Wednesdays, Throwback Thursday, Disney Super Fan Friday, Sing-Along Saturday, and Pixar Sunday.

Each screening will house up to 88 cars that will all be parked in front of a large inflatable screen with the car radio acting as surround sound for the night.

To make this all happen, we partnered with Open-air Cinemas who have been operating in the world of outdoor cinemas for over a decade now.  With their normal Open-air Cinema postponed until 2021 due to COVID-19, Open-air and the Stadium saw a great opportunity to take on a new challenge, amongst a reimagined events space.
