The Manc The Manc - 15th September 2020

An immersive drive-in cinema – with live actors lurking in the shadows – is coming to Manchester this Halloween.

A supernatural force is set to to descend on EventCity – with passengers peeking out from behind their windscreens as performers hover around a huge screen showing the world’s scariest horror films.

Launched by Park N Party – the team behind the sell-out series of drive-in cinema and theatre performances throughout summer – ScareCity will feature a bumper programme of Halloween classics for both adults and children. 

All vehicles are tasked with driving through a terrifying ‘scare tunnel’ packed with plenty of surprises, before parking up for the movie.

Older audiences can brave screenings of The Conjuring, It and The Ring, whilst kids can enjoy spooky classics from the comfort of the car like Coraline, Hocus Pocus and Coco.


Movies will be beamed out across several large screens at the Trafford Park venue from October 12 right up until November 1.
