With impressive reviews and a range of films that have mostly seen sell out attendances for the past two weeks, Loxwood Drive-In Movies have excited movies goers by announcing more showings such as Bohemian Rhapsody, Jurassic Park, A Star is Born, Grease and The Goonies on the 1st to 4th August.
As always the organisers are ensuring it will be ‘a night to remember’, and with the two screenings of Bohemian Rhapsody on the 1st and 2nd August, Tim Staffell will be performing live ‘Doin Alright’, the first song in the film which Tim co-wrote with Queens lead guitarist Brian May.
Tim Staffell’s character features early in Bohemian Rhapsody, as he was the lead vocalist and bassist with Smile, the rock trio which also included Brian May & Roger Taylor. Evolving as Queen when Tim introduced college friend Freddie Mercury and John Deacon also joined the band; both individually, and together with Brian May, Tim was responsible for much of the original song writing for Queen, with the film including the transition of the band from Smile to Queen.
This unique opportunity has been enabled by Tim’s longstanding friendship with Maurice Bacon, organiser of the Loxwood Drive-In Movies, and he will be giving a pre film talk on his friendship with Freddie Mercury and his days in Smile, in addition to answering questions from the lucky Drive-In Movie Audience.
Running twice a day from 1st to 4th August with a family matinee performance and evening showing, this American Style Movie extravaganza really has thought of everything. On arriving in the meadow, the friendly and polite staff will explain how it all works, hand over a food and beverage menu and guide you to your parking area.
The sound is relayed into the car through the in car stereo system, and the quick, efficient and freshly cooked food service is well priced and easily ordered by texting your order to the number given, before it is swiftly delivered to your car.
The full run of movies for the 1st to 4th August are:
1st Grease Bohemian Rhapsody (with Tim Staffell)
2nd Mamma Mia Bohemian Rhapsody (with Tim Staffell)
3rd Back To The Future Jurassic Park
4th The Goonies A Star Is Born
