Re-Drive In, a design competition seeking proposals for a drive-in movie theatre in Saudi Arabia

The history of drive-in theatres goes back to the 1910s as a solution for people not being comfortably seated in the tiny seats in traditional theatres. Drive-in’s lost their charm for various reasons such as oil prices rising along with alternative and better ways to watch a movie at high-end theatres or at home on DVDs.

As the pandemic has made its presence more obvious and ominous, and for a considerably long time for humans to go without work or recreation, people violating the lockdown are becoming the new normal – and even if things went back to normal, we’d need a safer alternative to closed theatres.

Brief

After almost 40 years the people of Saudi Arabia are about to experience cinema, it’s a fresh audience with minds yet to experience conventional methods of cinema and are open to new concepts.

The challenge here is to design a new user experience-based drive-in theatre in the given site for an automobile-centric audience. With the ongoing crisis, we must find safer alternatives to return to normal life, and drive-ins are one of those efficient ways. Drive-in theatres essentially being an open space give a lot of scope for the project’s future expansion as a bigger recreational center too.
