A drive-in cinema is coming to the new Innox Mills quarter of Trowbridge, offering a variety of films for families and grown-ups over the weekend of 7-9 August.
Cinema Retrow will feature family-friendly films plus classics such as iconic ‘80s titles Back to the Future, Grease and Dirty Dancing and more recent release including Joker and Rocketman. Guests can pre-order food including hot dogs and burgers from local street food provider, JC’s Kitchen, which will be served by rollerblading waiters and waitresses.
Cinema Retrow will be a contactless event with tickets, food and drink ordered online. Cars will be also socially distanced and parked at the recommended distance apart, in line with the latest government guidelines.
Throughout the experience, families will stay in their cars for the duration of the event, unless they need to visit the emergency toilets. Each car will have a choice between a wireless receiver and mini in-car speaker as they drive in, which will offer excellent sound quality, or a receiver if they’d like the audio to play through their car speakers.
The cost is £25 per car for the Saturday and Sunday morning films, and £35 a car for each film screened from 1pm onwards. Premium first four row tickets are also available at £42.50 per car.

Friday 7 August

“A drive-in cinema is a great way to experience the excitement of watching feature films up on the big screen, but at a safe social distance, making this an ideal event for families,” said Jonathan Dean, Director of Innox Mills.
“We’ve worked hard to recreate the magic of the golden age of drive-in movies. Freshly prepared street food from award-winning local business JC’s Kitchen will be served by roller-skating waiters and waitresses in 1950s-style clothing, with further treats including giant retro sweet bags created by the founder of Sweet Sensations, 17 year old Trowbridge design student Georgia Smith.
“We have big plans for Innox Mills, where we want to foster a vibrant new quarter – helping to show off Trowbridge as a great place to live, work and visit. Cinema Retrow is a taste of things to come at the development, where our plans include an indoor food and drink market and permanent independent cinema.
“As we continue to work on our proposals, we hope that events such as this will help to encourage people to spend the day in Trowbridge, as well as offering a broader range of things to do for local residents.”
