First Covid-compliant drive-in in Centurion for young and old

Midstream Zone was introduced by the Midstream community to assist families from the area who have faced financial difficulty during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Residents of Midstream Estate near Centurion have launched a “first-of-its-kind” drive-in to raise money to help families hit by the national lockdown.

Called Midstream Zone, the drive-in was introduced by the local community to assist families from the area who have either lost their jobs or suffered financial difficulty because of the lockdown, according to Midstream Estate marketing manager Vinesse Rohland.

“The initiative will work through five churches in the area and will directly target families that need financial help the most,” she said.

“It is the first of its kind in South Africa. The drive-in is completely Covid-compliant, each parking bay safely situated from the next to comply with social distancing regulations. People can enjoy a wide array of shows, movies and performances for young and old.

“Food vendors are available during each show, so people can enjoy a snack or meal during the show. We decided to use restaurants already based inside Midstream, because they too had suffered financial strain during the lockdown. Our goal is to assist businesses and people that directly serve our community.”

Audio for the drive-in movies is broadcast through a frequency on your car radio.

“You pay per vehicle and not per person, which makes this experience extremely affordable.”

Prices range between R135 to R350 per car, depending on your spot.

Midstream Zone is located directly across the road from the Midstream medical centre, and is easily accessible to the public.

“We really do encourage the public and people living outside Midstream to use the Zone. It is a safe and fun source of entertainment, where families can get out of the house and have some fun for a change,” said Rohland.

She says that upcoming shows for October and November have been finalised.
