Pluzzfm and its partners are organizing the first ever Drive-in Theater in Ghana on Valentine’s Day this year. The event will be held at Tawala Beach Resort, Labadi. The rate is a cool 10 cedis and there will be a lot of free items for everyone. It will be a live broadcast on their radio station (89.9) and provision will be made for all sizes of cars at the same rate. This is the first and they are ensuring things go as planned. They would like to have this event again in the future. This is new and most people will be rushing for tickets to have a firsthand experience. This event is in the right direction to move away from the usual way people celebrate Valentine’s Day in Ghana. Tickets will be available before the day of event and also at the gate of the location.
A drive-in theater is a form of cinema structure consisting of a large outdoor movie screen, a projection booth, a concession stand and a large parking area for automobiles. Within this enclosed area, customers can view movies from the privacy and comfort of their cars.
The screen can be as simple as a wall that is painted white, or it can be a steel truss structure with a complex finish. Originally, a movie’s sound was provided by speakers on the screen and later by an individual speaker hung from the window of each car, which would be attached by a wire. This system was superseded by the more economical and less damage-prone method of broadcasting the soundtrack at a low output power on AM or FM radio to be picked up by a car radio. This method also allows the soundtrack to be picked up in stereo by the audience on an often high fidelity stereo installed in the car instead of through a simple speaker.
