Tea-time Treat added to Halloween Drive In Movies

Hotel Transylvania (U) tells the tale of spooky goings on at Dracula’s resort in Transylvania, where monsters bring their families to holiday far from human civilisation.

Dracula invites his most frightening friends, including Frankenstein's monster, Mummy, a Werewolf family and the Invisible Man, to celebrate the 118th birthday of his daughter Mavis.

When an ordinary 21 year old traveller named Jonathan stumbles across the ghoulish celebrations, Dracula must protect Mavis from falling in love with him before the hotel's guests learn there is a human in the castle.

The film’s confirmed screen time is 6pm, with gates opening at 5pm, making it the perfect tea-time treat for children of all ages this half term.

The first film to be shown in the Halloween programme will be the musical fantasy comedy Frozen (PG) at 2pm, leaving plenty of time to grab a bite to eat at Southwater before settling down to watch Hotel Transylvania.

The festival of spooky viewings continues into the evening with cult classic Rocky Horror Picture Show (15) at 8.30pm and the supernatural slasher A Nightmare on Elm Street (18) at 11pm.

Movie-goers will be able to buy food and drink from The International Centre, with orders delivered to your car. All the restaurants and bars in Southwater will also be open by the end of the month, just a few minutes’ walk from the big screen.

The screen is the biggest of its kind in the world. As with the sold out two night showing of Grease and Top Gun in May, cars will be parked according to size to maximise the view for all. The price is the same regardless of the size of car.

Councillor Liz Clare, cabinet member for Leisure Services and Culture, said: “Hotel Transylvania is a real family favourite and completes a fantastic line up of films which will appeal to viewers of all ages.

“After the huge success of both films selling out in May, I am delighted that we can once again bring the drive in movie experience to Telford.”

The drive in movie costs £20 per car per film plus a £2 admin fee per booking. Tickets can be booked online on The Place website or by calling the box office on 01952 382382 or by visiting the Box Office in person. Tickets can also be bought at Southwater One.
