Drive-Ins Are Making A Comeback In Gauteng!

Who remembers the good old days when you'd gather the family into the car and head to the drive-in for a fun night out at the movies or to grab some delicious takeout? Those were the days. And thanks to social distancing (looking on the brighter side), this nostalgic experience is making a comeback! 

Drive In Pretoria

This is such exciting news! But, since we are still in lockdown and need to abide by the rules, there’s still lots of planning, organising and preparations in the works. However, we can tell you who is planning some exciting drive-in movie events and old roadhouse thrills that’ll be popping up soon! Keep an eye on this post, there’s plenty more excitement to come!

Molly Malone’s Roadhouse Drive-In In Fourways

Now, if you are willing to take a drive to Joburg for a roadhouse experience at one of the city’s popular spots, then this one is for you! One of Fourway’s favourite watering holes has turned into an old school roadhouse drive-in until they can officially reopen their doors! Molly Malone‘s is popular for their pub grub, live sport viewing, quiz nights and live music. But due to restrictions, they’ve had to get creative and put a whole new spin on social distancing. As of 10 June 2020, Molly Malone’s launched their new Roadhouse Drive-In. There seems to have been a little bump in the road, but everything is sorted now and they may continue as of 15 June.

They’ll also still be offering their usual popular entertainment, just with a whole new roadhouse drive-in twist.
