Making the best of a bad situation--- Airport becomes drive-in cinema

Submitted
A silver screen has been stretched out outside gates 1-4, and some 150 cars with a maximum of two people per vehicle - except families - can watch a movie. A recent screening was the Oscar-winner South Korean film Parasite. (www.stuff.co.nz) More...

That's a heck of an idea. It would be awesome if they showed the movie Airplane!.

Airplane? What is it?
Oh it's a big metal thing that carries people in the air.
(Airplane is also known as Flying High in Australia https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080339/)

I just wonder how they get the audio into the cars? Great big loudspeakers?

Probably tune in the car radio to a low watt AM frequency located at the airport. Way screw up some NDB approaches though :)

Probably low-power FM. Like the people that do the crazy Christmas decorations do. You can get a small one on the cheap that is FCC Part 15 compliant and in stereo and everything.

"Tune to 91.1 on your FM dial and enjoy the movie in clear stereo sound."

Probably low power FM, like the tower relays at plane watching spots at some airports. Not sure if any of those are stereo, though.

Same way they get it into airplanes.

That's what I was thinking - surely they have a radio transmitter somewhere around the airport ;-)

This website actually mentions "car radios", but not the band used; https://www.vilnius-airport.lt/en/news/aerocinema-a-drive-in-movie-theatre-lands-at-vilnius-airport

No concession stand, I'm guessing.

No restroom - that'd be a dealbreaker.
