‘BREAK’ - 22ND JULY @ BRENT CROSS VENUE

BRENT CROSS & DAGENHAM
MONDAY NIGHT BLOCK BUSTER FILM NIGHTS HOSTED BY ALEX ZANE WITH LIVE Q & A’S @ BRENT CROSS VENUE
The Drive-In Club has announced that the Brent Cross venue will host the UK’s first ever red-carpet Drive-In Film Premiere on 22nd July. The film, BREAK, a British thriller, stars the late Golden Globe winner and Hollywood legend Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner/True Blood) in his final film role. His co-stars include Bafta winner Adam Deacon (Kidulthood), Sam Gittins (The Liberator/Obey), David Yip (Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom, A View to a Kill) and Jamie Foreman (Layer Cake, Elizabeth). The film also features Terri Dwyer (Hollyoaks/Loose Women) who is producing the film alongside Dean Fisher, whilst Michael Elkin has written and directed the movie.
BREAK is a life affirming rags-to-riches story that follows the troubled, but talented Spencer Pryde (Gittins) a gifted, inner-city kid who was wasting his life on petty crime and violence. A chance encounter with former ‘eight ball’ pool champion, Vince Qiang (Yip) and tough guy club owner Ray (Hauer) presents him with the opportunity to turn his life around. When tragedy strikes, Spencer finally breaks away from his so-called friends and all the negative influences of his life - drugs, violence and knife crime. With Qiang’s guidance Spencer makes a bid for a prestigious snooker tournament held in Beijing...but can he overcome his demons and use the talents he was blessed with?

The Drive-In Club has also announced their film screenings with kids & family offerings like Moana, Life of Pi, Zootropolis, Alita: Battle Angel, WALL-E, UP!, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles 2, Inside Out, Captain Marvel, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Wreck-It, Ralph & Big Hero 6. Other films include Black Panther, Pulp Fiction, Starship Troopers, Cliffhanger and The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of The Desert.
To complement the film selection movie expert Alex Zane will be hosting special blockbuster film nights every Monday with films confirmed that include Rocketman, 1917 & Bladerunner 2049. The night will also consist of Q&A’s from actors and directors.
The Drive-In Club is the first and biggest multi-screen, multi-genre, outside entertainment experience to hit the UK. In line with government guidelines, ticket holders will be able to either sit inside or outside their cars with sound broadcast through a dedicated FM frequency. This entirely contact-free, live programmed event is a safe space to enjoy entertainment whilst adhering to social distancing government practices.
The first venues to be announced are in Brent Cross from 3rd July & Dagenham from 9th July (with more locations to be announced), the venues will host everything from live comedy, music, podcasts, Q&A’s & family shows to the latest blockbuster films throughout the day and into the night. The specially curated content is designed to appeal to a variety of ages and interests and is set to bring people together in a controlled but fun environment. Food & beverage deliveries can be ordered online on the day and delivered direct to your car from a selection of traders.
The Drive-In Club importantly recognises the relentless hard work of our NHS heroes by giving away hundreds tickets free of charge to their hard working staff. This allows them to spend much-needed quality time with their loved ones. In addition, the Drive-In Club will help the live entertainment industry that has been hit hard to get back on track via this unique concept.
Drive-ins have already been a huge success in Germany and other parts of Europe, therefore tickets are expected to be in huge demand on release in the debut London locations. The venues will have carefully managed capacities and dedicated professional health & safety advisors, to ensure government regulations are implemented. Ultimately, The Drive-In Club provides an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of cultural content in a safe environment for customers, talent and event staff.
The Drive-In Club will also have a donate option for up to £5 per purchase with funds going to local causes and charities.
