Following on from its successful outing last summer, a cliff-top drive-in cinema is returning to the Cornwall coast.

Wavelength Media’s Drive-In Summer Cinema Series attracted drive-in fan and cinephiles alike during its 2020 run, and the team has now announced the event series is surfing back into Cornwall.

Quoted by Time Out Magazine as ‘the most beautiful outdoor cinema’, and lauded by Radio 2 DJ, Jo Whiley amongst others, last year’s alfresco cinematic sessions provided the perfect backdrop of crashing waves and stunning Cornish sunsets.

Bringing an epic schedule of family-friendly flicks, cult cinema classics and surf movies, this year's lineup will feature additional afternoon screenings on bigger LED screens as well as an exclusive Surf Film Festival, celebrating current and classic surf cinema.

Although in a neighbouring field (but still within Trebelsue Farm), the Wavelength Drive-In Cinema Series 2021 features an awe-inspiring setting which overlooks Watergate Bay Beach, near Newquay.

A total of 21 screenings will take place throughout the summer from July, across every weekend (from Thursdays to Sundays), eventually coming to a close on September 5.

The daytime showings will start at 12.45pm throughout with a number of family-friendly films such as The Goonies, The Greatest Showman, Moana and Pirates of the Caribbean.

The Wavelength team, behind Europe’s original surf publication, Wavelength, are working in close collaboration with Cornwall Council to ensure all public safety requirements are met and exceeded across the summer events.

Up to 200 cars per session will be parked in an appropriately safe and structured way and there will also be a host of on-site options including street food, live music, a socially distanced tombola, popcorn stands and craft beer bars.
