Jio launches India’s first open-air rooftop drive-in theatre

Sooryavanshi, starring Akshay Kumar, was the first film shown at the country’s first rooftop drive-in movie theatre, which opened on November 5 in Mumbai, Maharashtra. The drive-in theatre has a capacity of 290 automobiles and was opened at Mumbai’s Jio World Drive mall in collaboration with Reliance Retail and managed by multiplex network PVR Ltd.

With the globe still adjusting to the new normal following the COVID-19 outbreak, moviegoers are turning to drive-in theatres as a safer alternative. ‘People crave relatively safer open spaces. The movies are there, of course, but the environment of nice weather, open sky and food become a very critical component. It’s all here’, Darshan Mehta, CEO of Jio World Drive said.
