The charity fundraising event, organised by The Catherine McEwan Foundation, will see a whole host of films shown over the three days from Friday, June 4 to Sunday, June 6.

It’s a weekend of superheroes, sing-a-longs and Star Wars with a theme to the films each day, and something on offer for everyone to enjoy.

On Friday, Batman Begins kicks off the proceedings at 6pm, followed by Superman: Man of Steel at 9pm.

A day of family fun and a girls’ day/night out follows the next day with the Saturday singalong – The Greatest Showman at noon; Mamma Mia at 3pm; Grease at 6pm and Dirty Dancing at 9pm.

There’s also a special late-night screening of Pink Floyd: The Wall at midnight.

And the weekend will end with Star Wars Sunday.

It kicks off at noon with Rogue One, followed by A New Hope at 3pm, The Empire Strikes Back at 6pm and Return of the Jedi at 9pm.

Refreshments will be available at the screenings and there may be some surprises too.

The event follows the success of two previous drive-in events held at the stadium last summer and at Hallowe’en.

As with these previous Lockdown Drive-In Movie events at the home of Falkirk FC, all the money raised goes to the Catherine McEwan Foundation.

The charity helps Scots sufferers of Crohn’s and Colitis, including funding research, staff and support workers.
