A drive-in cinema event held in Preston was marred after vandals damaged the screen.


Moonlight Drive-in Cinema has been taking place over the last week at Deepdale Retail ParkĀ and finished with a showing of Dirty Dancing last night (March 16).

The organisers have had to apologise to those at the event after Ā£3000 worth of damage was caused during the showing.

They said: “Well that’s all folks, we had a great week with you all, unfortunately I have to apologise to those who where effected at the later screening last night due to the vandalism that took place to our screen during the film.

“If anyone does have any information regard the offending person do get in touch as it caused Ā£3,000 worth of damage

“Regardless of that you where all exceptional customers and we will see you again soon I’m sure.”

It is believed that somebody threw an object at the screen and caused a hole which can’t be repaired.
