Bad experience from beginning. 2 gift vouchers were paid for as presents but never arrived, after phoning numerous times got told they had "forgotten" to post them. Eventually they did arrive by email, beginning to think if had not rang would we ever have received them. Recently been trying to get in contact about what films are on no reply... More

Thought we'd have this a try, would definitely do it again. Obviously they can only show one film at a time as there's only one screen/wall so might have to wait a while for a film we want to see to be showing. All in all was pleasantly surprised. We were in the front row, not sure if the view... More

Went with my partner to see Batman vs Superman. It's pretty much a white wall that the film is projected onto then you tune your car radio in to hear the sound. The hot food menu is just ordered from the local kebab but you get what you pay for. Pretty good overall

We visited here March 2016 and had travelled from Newcastle! It was definitely worth the visit, we were not disappointed at all. We arrived an hour early and there were quite a few cars queuing. The gates opened about 40 minutes before the film started and we drove up to the ticket office, before being directed to our spot. It... More

Something different to do for valentines. The only minor issue was them not doing Dominoes anymore, which was a bit inconvenient. We also arrived too late to order from their own food menu, so we had to get on Just eat and get a delivery. All in all something nice to do as a change for valentines :)

I booked this as a date, with the plan of ordering a Domino's to the car while we watched the film. However, it wasn't until we got there that they told us that this was no longer available. Instead, they gave us a hot food menu. I am (unfortunately) gluten free. There was no gluten free option on the menu... More

We love coming here as you can fill the car with all the comforts you like, snacks, drinks, pillows and blankets then sit back and enjoy a good film! Yes it is basically a white wall in an industrial estate but it's quirky and fun! If you're expecting the Imax experience you will be disappointed but for people who just... More

My boyfriend and I booked a voucher with Groupon for a visit to the drive through with popcorn and drinks. Firstly we struggled to find it. As it says Trafford park it doesn't feel like it at all! It's on an industrial estate with wagons and lorries around! After driving around the same road 5 times we questioned a car... More

First impressions of the place is that it's a bit of disused land with a white wall at one end. However, you soon get into the whole atmosphere. Sound quality depends on the quality of your car radio as it's broadcast through that. The film projection was faultless and I can see the attraction. Only downside would be if the... More
