Ford is encouraging Aussies to get out and explore the country with its first ‘Drive & Seek’ challenge.

You’ll have the opportunity to experience a unique outdoor cinema experience, Victorians that is, because the event is being staged in Tallarook — a 90-minute drive from the Melbourne CBD.

The invitation comes after a virtual six-week silence from the local arm of the American company that recently changed leadership.

Set over three nights at the start of the September school holidays, the free cinema will screen Disney favourites including Disney’s Moana, The Lion King and Disney Pixar’s Up.

Tickets include a complimentary popcorn pack per vehicle on arrival and guests are welcome to bring their own drive-in picnic, or purchase food on site from food trucks from Loaded Gourmet Hotdogs and The Pizza Doctor.

Ford says the cinema will be well worth the trip, with filmgoers rewarded with stunning views and a unique, natural setting for a movie-watching experience to remember under the stars.

The Cinema is the first event from Ford’s ‘Drive & Seek’ initiative, with more events set to appear on the Ford Drive & Seek site in the coming weeks.

“We want to encourage Aussies to get out and embrace their spirit of adventure,” Ford CEO Kay Hart said.

“We invite all Aussie families to Drive & Seek and enjoy a night on Ford this September school holidays.”

Key details:
The cinema will be screening Disney favourites across three evenings:

  • September 21st, 2018 – The Lion King
  • September 22nd, 2018 – Moana
  • September 23rd, 2018 – Up

Tickets are now available via the Ford Drive & Seek website – driveandseek. Places at the cinema are limited – be sure to reserve your free vehicle space while supplies last.
