Despite lockdown: drive-in Gravenbruch may remain open

As of today, cinemas across Germany must remain closed and are expected to be allowed to show films again from 01 December. An exception is the drive-in cinema Gravenbruch. Until the end, the operators have trembled, but on Sunday came the good news: The exemption is there and so can flicker even during the lockdown daily films on the two big screens of the drive-in. Here you can turn your car into your very own cinema. And it works very well, as we experienced for ourselves during a visit late last week.

After entering with contactless ticketing, patrons are directed to the lot by the lot attendant. Outside masks are mandatory, as are spacing rules at the snack bar and restrooms. No question: safe movie enjoyment is guaranteed here, which is why all the employees here go to great lengths.

Since other cinemas are now closed for the time being, the program has also been made a bit more diverse. In addition to typical drive-in fodder such as the disaster film "Greenland" with Gerard Butler, which is well worth seeing, or horror films such as the surprise hit "Follow me" or the classic "Zombie - Dawn of the Dead", the program in the coming weeks also includes children's and family films such as "Jim Knopf and the Wild 13", "Mina & the Dream Wizards" or "Max and the Wild 7", which will then be shown as early as 6 or 7 p.m. when darkness falls.

So if you don't want to miss out on cinema during the lockdown, you should definitely head for Germany's oldest drive-in cinema. However, it is essential to observe the admission requirements - such as looking at the FSK release. You can get all further information, the program and online tickets at:
