Movies under the Stars drives thousands to Huddle Park

  • CommunityChevDriveIn
A Chevrah Kadisha fundraiser drew more than a thousand people in the Joburg Jewish community into their cars to relive the days when going to the drive-in was a regular family outing.

Using modern technology, the Chev brought back this once-favourite night out to Huddle Park over a number of evenings, showing a mix of golden oldies and newly released movies. Its Movies under the Stars gave people the opportunity to have safe nights out with (or without) the children, free of COVID-19 concerns, and a kosher meal.

Every movie had a different menu and caterer, from burgers and pizzas to meze boxes and chicken schnitzel, with snacks and soft drinks (naturally) added to the mix. Student waiters and waitresses served the pre-packed meals to cars, and were grateful for the part-time work.

To date, a total of 1 477 guests have attended in 559 cars, and 1 254 meals have been served. Now that its popularity has been established, the community can look forward to Movies under the Stars becoming the new, old normal.
