After the Broadway drive-in opened at Radial Park at Halletts Point Play earlier this year, a season of festive productions have been announced. Audiences can watch new and classic Christmas movies at a drive-in theatre for the four weekends leading up to Christmas, from November 27 to December 19.

The Christmas Show will see audiences watch live performances, while playing games, raffles and "Secret Santa" themed activities. Guests will be able to watch from the comfort of their own cars or via reserved picnic tables.

From November 27-29, audiences can watch Elf, the 2003 film which sees a human elf back in New York as he reunites with his father. Will Ferrell plays Buddy, in a cast with Zooey Deschanel and James Caan.

On December 4-5, The Polar Express will be screened at Radial Park. The animated film features a group of young children as they climb aboard a train marked for the North Pole.

Gremlins will be available to watch at the drive-in on December 11-12. Set at Christmastime, the comedy movie follows a young man who receives a strange creature called as a pet, which can spawn into evil monsters.

A Christmas Story rounds off films in The Christmas Show. The 1980s classic sees Ralphie Parker wishing for his dream Christmas gift, with audiences able to relive A Christmas Story on December 18-19.
