Islamabad’s first drive-in cinema inaugurated at Fatima Jinnah Park

Perfect opportunity in Islamabad for some family fun in the open without COVID-19 concerns

Islamabad’s first drive-in cinema is now operational in the Fatima Jinnah Park. Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed inaugurated the state of the art cinema.

In times of coronavirus, it is an excellent way to enjoy an evening out with the family without worrying about the virus. The ticket for each vehicle was originally one thousand rupees, which the interior minister ordered to be slashed down to 50 rupees in order for the cinema to be more accessible to the common man.

The cinemas will be run at different times during the weekdays and weekends. On the weekends, the movies will run between 5:30 PM to 9:30 PM, while on the weekdays, it will show movies between 9:30 PM and 12:30 AM. ‘War for the Planet of Apes’ and ‘Spider-Man Far from Home’ are being shown in the drive-in cinema.

CDA Chairman Amer Ali Ahmed said the cinema would provide recreational opportunities to Rawalpindi residents and Islamabad’s twin cities under the safest environment.

The head of psychiatry at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Dr. Rizwan Taj, also appreciated the step. It provides much-needed relief to the people in times of the COVID-19 pandemic. Citizens who came to the cinema also expressed their delight as they got a chance to do an activity in the open air without health fears.
