Pippa Hudson interviewed Go Drive-In co-owner Tyrone Rubin.

Even before lockdown, our dream was to open a drive-in in Cape Town.

Tyrone Rubin, co-owner - Go Drive-In

We’ll have local films on Friday nights and mostly family films on Saturdays. On Sundays, it’ll be a bit more adult-focussed… This Friday, we have to open with Back to the Future… We have a horror film on Halloween.

Tyrone Rubin, co-owner - Go Drive-In

We are [Covid-19] compliant.
