Drive-in cinema Borchland closed due to corona: ‘incomprehensible’


The drive-in cinema in the parking lot of the Borchland event location has been closed since last night. The decision of the Amsterdam-Amstelland Safety Region is in accordance with the latest emergency ordinance, but nevertheless causes outrage among Roy Blom, general director of Borchland.

‘Yesterday morning I received a message from Mayor Langenacker van Ouder-Amstel that we could just continue,’ Blom tells AT5. ‘At the beginning of the evening, however, she called me to say that we had to close immediately. I immediately got into the car and drove to the store. We had to send away all the cars that came for the 7 p.m. film. ‘

The phone call from Mayor Langenacker followed the announcement from the Safety Region that the cinema had to be closed. ‘I find it incomprehensible,’ says Blom about that decision. ‘It’s a great fun and completely corona-proof pastime. You stay in your car and don’t come into contact with anyone else. This is safer than walking into a store all together. ‘

Nevertheless, the decision is in accordance with the new emergency ordinance of 14 October. With regard to the ban on organizing events, there is an exception for cinemas. However, the regulation also states that ‘showing films in an outdoor cinema or drive-in cinema is not permitted.’

A spokesman for mayor Halsema, chairman of the security region, agrees that this is the reason for the closure of the cinema. He further emphasizes that this is a decision on the instruction of the State.

Blom nevertheless hopes that the emergency ordinance can be adjusted so that his cinema can reopen. “We should all ban corona, but this was a fair event.”
