This idea, Philippe Dejust had as many operators of cinema in early may when no one knew when the theaters would reopen in France. The concepts launched in Oslo in Norway and Tallinn in Lithuania has been of great success among spectators, the idea of the drive-in to the French was interesting.

Blois, the original idea was to install a giant screen and a projector in the parking lot of the multiplexe Cap Cinema. "My idea was to relocate one of my rooms to the outside. Finally, my parking turned out to be too small and there were trees. The technical costs were 35 000 euros, and as I stood in a ticket at 5 euros per spectator, it was necessary to be able to accommodate 150 people per night. The idea was not to earn money but not to lose so I gave up," says Philippe Dejust.

At the same time, the cinephile Nicolas Pearson, president various the right of the departmental Council of Loir-et-Cher is looking for a cultural activity for the summer. "For us at the county council, it was not possible to pass a summer without cultural offer. So I had the idea of organizing a drive-in at the aerodrome of Blois-le Breuil that we manage, " says the elected official. I've talked to the CEO of Cap Ciné for the construction together programming. The project was launched. We have put together this event in only three weeks. This is part of the missions of the department to make the territory alive and attractive and to promote culture and tourism."

With a screen inflatable of 110 square meters and a space of 15 square meters per vehicle, the operation takes on a dimension substantial. The cost of 60,000 euros is funded by the County Council. Of course, it all depends on the weather. The sessions of Tuesday 16 June and Wednesday 17 June, with the jungle Book, and Excalibur had to be postponed because of rain. Between a damp soil and the torrential rain making the view complicated behind the windshield, the decision was quickly taken to postpone these two evenings.

organisers have offered to refund the tickets, but no spectator has not wanted to give up on the session drive-in. And for good reason, in the region, despite the hostility of the greens at the drive-in, word-of-mouth is very positive.

At the end of the sessions, the horns ring out in place of applause. On social networks, the comments are laudatory. "I have exactly the atmosphere I had always dreamed about", welcomes Philippe Eaten. To the point that even the lovers of old cars, have given the word to come to parade every evening with their cars. It remains 44 sessions until Saturday, August 1st with shows a lot of cult movies like Mad Max, Parasite, the The Land, Django, Avengers, Crooks in Clover, Blade Runner, E. T, Kill Bill, Scarface, and other Pulp Fiction.
