    Drive-in theatres are back in Metro Cities!

    'It's a warm evening, but people don't seem to be bothered by the heat as they watch the critically acclaimed film out in the open, where they can drink, smoke and talk, if they feel like.'
    an outdoors screening of A Star Is Born.


    In the midst of Gurugram's upcoming residential buildings, past a network of sandy, bumpy roads, lies an open space dedicated to the movie buff.

    As I turn my car into what looks like a parking lot, a 30-ft screen with visuals of Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga singing in A Star Is Born meets the eye.

    There are about 70 people in, on and around their cars, intently watching the film. On one side is a beer and snacks stall.

    "It's all about getting people to experience cinema," says Sahil Kapoor, co-founder of the Sunset Cinema Club, which works towards creating immersive cinematic experiences in Delhi-NCR, Pune, Mumbai and Bengaluru.

    SCC was born in November 2016 with an outdoor screening of Quentin Tarantino's revered Pulp Fiction in Delhi's Akshara theatre.

    "We were completely sold out and had 250 people on the very first day," remembers Kapoor.

    Since then, SCC has screened a variety of Hollywood and Bollywood films at different venues across cities on request from corporate organisations and individuals.

    It also holds regular screenings at least twice a month, tickets for which can be purchased on platforms such as Insider.

    For a movie at SCC Dome, tickets are priced at Rs 400 and parking spots are given out on a first-come-first-serve basis.

    SCC Dome held its first screening on March 7 this year, where 180 people turned up to watch the Academy Award-winning Bohemian Rhapsody.

    The company has tied up with 11 studios across the world such as Warner Bros and Yash Raj Films, granting it access to about 11,000 film titles.
