E.T. and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory screening at Dublin drive-in cinema this weekend

The perfect socially distant weekend activity.

If you are yet to make plans for the weekend (I mean; who makes plans anymore these days...?), you might be interested to know about these very retro movies coming to the Drive-In Cinema at Leopardstown Racecourse in Dublin.

Classics E.T. and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory are just two of the flicks screening at the drive-in cinema this weekend.

So grab your mates (no more than six of you though, okay?) pick up some bags of popcorn and M&Ms and head to the movies – all in the comfort of your own car!

If E.T. isn't your cup of tea, or you think 9pm might be a bit late, fear not – there are plenty of other movies to catch at the drive-in cinema.

At Leopardstown, you can also catch Matilda and The BFG part of their Roald Dahl tribute weekend.

Decent day out in fairness – and admit it, there is something seriously fun about being able to go to the movies in your pyjamas.

Bring along your favourite treats (due to Covid-19 restrictions, there are no food trucks operating on site right now), grab your cosiest blanket and pillow for extra in-car comfort, and off you go.
