The Wrexham Drive-In Cinema Returns to Bangor-on-Dee

18th May 2017

Following the popularity of the Valentine’s drive-in cinema, the Wrexham Council events team, This Is Wrexham and Apollo Taxis are bringing a two day film summer spectacular to Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse this June!

On Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th June, the huge Iconic 100 screen will show six classic films ranging from cult classics such as Dirty Dancing and Top Gun through to kids favourites Shrek and Toy Story! 

Tickets are just £15 per car for each film, irrespective of the number of occupants and there will be free popcorn on arrival along with on-site catering if you’re feeling peckish! 

Chatting about the screenings, Destination Manager at Wrexham Council Joe Bickerton said;

“We’re really excited to be able to stage another drive-in cinema this summer.  Working with the This Is Wrexham Partnership (tourism board for Wrexham), the guys at Bangor-on-Dee racecourse and our sponsors Apollo Taxis is always simple as we all want to bring positive new events to the area.  February’s cinema worked so well and many people have since messaged us to say what a great evening it was – so we got together and looked at how we could stage another.  The films have all been chosen based on feedback through Facebook and we’re sure that they’ll be popular with everyone!”

Tickets for each film will be available from the Wrexham Tourist Information Centre from Monday 15th May priced at £15.00 per car.  You can also book via phone on 01978 292015 (Mon-Fri 10.00am – 4.00pm) but there will be a £1.00 postage fee.
