Drive in Cinema excitement! - East Cheshire Hospice

Drive in Cinema excitement!

Volunteer Julie Candy is bringing a touch of Hollywood glamour to her 50th birthday celebrations.

The film fan will be in the audience for a Drive-In Cinema at Capesthorne Hall on Sunday, October 17. Family favourite Moana and the 80s classic Dirty Dancing are being screened by East Cheshire Hospice. Gates open at 6 pm for Moana (6.30 pm start) and at 9 pm for Dirty Dancing (9.30 pm start).

Tickets are £25 per car for one film, or £35 for both.  To book visit

Julie said: “I’ve never been to a drive-in cinema before, so it’ll be nice to try new things for my 50th birthday which is three days before.

“My husband Chris and our friends are coming along and we’ll take a picnic, have a few drinks and enjoy both films. I like going to the Cinemac in Macclesfield and I’m looking forward to seeing the new James Bond film.

“I volunteer in the Sunflower Centre at the Hospice. That means I see first-hand the incredibly dedicated staff and services provided to different groups in our community and realise the importance of supporting Hospice fundraising events.”

Pizzas, popcorn and candy floss will be available and cinema goers can take their own snacks and drinks. Social distancing measures will be in place.

Hospice Marketing Manager Luke Brightmore said: “Guests can choose to watch either film, or stay for a full movie marathon at a discounted rate, all from the safety and comfort of their own vehicle.”
