2020 has been met with a mixed bag of emotions by almost everyone so perhaps a dose of feel-good movies, like Disney classics, might help things seem brighter. For a whole month beginning 17 Sept 2020, a Disney+ drive-in cinema featuring popular movies — including Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar — is popping up at the Northshore Riverfront in Hamilton. 

Presented by OpenAir Cinemas, the movies you grew up on or repeatedly enjoyed with families and friends will be beamed on the big screen and you can watch it safely inside your vehicle. Here’s your chance to relive the magic of Disney despite the limitations due to the pandemic.

The drive-in cinema will run until 18 Oct 2020. This event coincides with the launch of the Disney+ streaming service in Australia by November.
