Is there a better summer plan than hitting a drive-in movie and moving back to the 1950s, feeling like Danny and Sandy in Grease? This plan is at hand in the capital, since it has a real open-air cinema, the Autocine Madrid Race Centro, which offers much more than a movie afternoon.
This outdoor cinema, which is located in the Fuencarral area, has a giant screen of 250 square meters, where you can see movies of all kinds, both premieres and movies of a lifetime, as well as documentaries about the biggest bands and musical groups in history
Services and entertainment: much more than a cinema
But not only that: the plans of the autocine they don’t end there. The decoration in the purest style of the 50s makes the visitor transport himself to another time. An example is the Diner and Food Truck, an American-style gastroneta In which you can place the order from the car itself so that they bring you dinner during the movie.
Likewise, you can opt for Rita’s Brunch, a special place to have a drink in the drive-in, since on weekends the atmosphere is unmatched: live music, DJs, foodtrucks, zone chill out on the outdoor terrace …
Drive-in remains Open from Monday to Sunday, both in the summer and winter months, and you can enjoy the film from your car, where you can tune in to the radio station to listen better, or you can choose the hammock area when the weather is good to see the film outdoors, specifically, from June 15.
But there is still one more surprise inside the drive-in: the enclosure has a large giant Ferris wheel where you can enjoy incredible views of Madrid or with which you can photograph yourself from below, with views of the famous Cuatro Torres de la capital. Of course, you have to have a ticket to the drive-in to have access to the Ferris wheel.
Finally, you have to know that You can go to the drive-in with a pet. In fact, on Thursdays the ‘Dog’s Afternoon’ is celebrated and visitors who come with pets have a 2×1 in popcorn. In addition, the cinema has a wiper service to be able to see the film well inside the car and with a suction cup visor service for the moon in case it rains.
