Coronavirus: Vilnius transforms its airport into a drive-in cinema


Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, has revisited the trend of cinemas with drive-ins, by organizing one at the city’s airport!

With almost all flights terminated due to COVID-19, the airport has partnered with the Vilnius International Film Festival.

The first film was the award-winning South Korean drama Parasite, Wednesday April 29.

About 150 cars showed up to watch the film. The social distance measures meant that vehicles should be parked at least two meters apart, with a maximum of two people per vehicle.

In keeping with the theme of the airport trip, the organizers plan to show films from different continents each week.

“The implementation of this project was a pleasant challenge for us – we had to transform the airport apron, which is generally a restricted area, into an area open to moviegoers,” said Dainius Čiuplys, director of the Vilnius International Airport.

“We were delighted to contribute to a project of this nature while taking this opportunity to demonstrate how airports can perfectly combine aeronautical activities with events and projects of different formats.

“I believe that after the car cinema events, Vilnius will have even more moviegoers and aviation enthusiasts. “
