AIRPORT Drive-In Cinema Pops Up

Amid all the shutting down, we’re loving some of the clever stepping-up we’re seeing in some parts of the global travel and tourism ecosystem.

At the end of April, a drive-in ‘Aerocinema’ popped up on an airport apron area—where planes are usually parked, unloaded, refuelled and boarded—as part of the Vilnius International Film Festival in Lithuania.

Like most international airports currently, Vilnius International Airport has quieted down while waiting for travel restrictions to be lifted. The organisers of the film festival saw this downtime as a brilliant opportunity to screen films while movie theatres are closed.

“Implementing this project was a pleasant challenge for us.”

Dainius Čiuplys, Head of Vilnius Airport.

“We had to remake the airport apron, which is a restricted area, into a space open to film lovers. It is a nice opportunity to be a part of the whole process and at the same time to show that airports perfectly combine aviation activities with events and projects of various formats. I believe that after the drive-in cinema events, there will be even more lovers not only of good cinema, but also of aviation,” said Čiuplys.

Up to 200 cars can fit into the drive-in area for each screening.
