Pushing the limits of creativity and paving new paths, Ajyal 2020 features the first-ever drive-in cinema in Lusail as part of a multisensory experience for all ages.

Featuring an unmissable selection of films from classic family-favorites to edge-of-your-seat horror, the open-air cinema experience is set to bring the community together at safe social distances in line with government guidelines and with the health of all Ajyal participants as the top priority.

Tickets for the Drive-In screenings can be purchased for QAR 100 per car and are available at ajyalfilm.com.

In a special midnight screening, Eduardo Sánchez and Daniel Myrick’s The Blair Witch Project (USA/1999) follows three film students who vanish after traveling into a Maryland forest to film a documentary on the local Blair Witch legend, leaving only their footage behind.
