Along with the action on the big screen, and planes taking off on the runway behind, film fans can feast on gourmet street food including delicious wood fired pizzas, nachos, hot dogs, popcorn, ice cream and karaoke.

Over 150,000 film fans have attended itison Drive-In Movie events around Scotland including itison Drive-In Movies Christmas this past December at Loch Lomond Shores which sold out within a day for 20,000 people, and itison Drive-In Movies Valentine’s 2014 at Edinburgh Airport which was attended by 15,000 film fans.

Founder of itison and creator of itison Drive-In Movies Oli Norman said: “Our aim’s always been to match iconic films with cool locations – and watching Top Gun with planes taking off in the background is just awesome.
