Travel Guide Lonely Planet about drive-in cinema set up in Vilnius

An empty European airport has turned into a drive-in movie theatre

Vilnius airport is taking advantage of the decreased traffic caused by COVID-19 travel restrictions to set up a drive-in cinema in its airport apron area, where planes are usually parked, unloaded, refuelled and boarded.

Vilnius International Airport has erected the largest screen in the Baltic States, as it’s approximately the size of a five-storey building. The sound system operates through car radios, just like traditional drive-in theatres, and up to 200 cars can fit into the screening area at once to watch a movie. It is part of the ‘Aerocinema – The Journey Begins’ project, which will run until the end of May as part of the Vilnius International Film Festival. Festival organisers saw the quieter time at the airport as a brilliant opportunity to screen films while movie theatres are closed.
