Drive-in cinema is returning to Albury thanks to the Twin City Classic Vehicle Club.
The first of what's hoped to be many drive-ins is taking place at Albury Showgrounds on Saturday night.
Aussie cult film Running on Empty will play on a 10-by-six-metre screen.
Club president Nathan Maloney said there had been many discussions over the years about getting such an event happening.
"We're looking to make it an ongoing thing, whether it be our club or other clubs, that also come in and run it as a community thing," he said.
"Entry will be raising money for the car club and that'll give us an opportunity to give to a few charities.
"We're hoping to bring drive-in back to the Border.
"I was six when I last saw one out at Thurgoona."
Unlike the drive-in that used to operate on Corrys Road, the screen - purchased by Redi 2 Hire in Wodonga a few months ago - is a pop-up.
Running on Empty was a logical first choice for the car club, which has a dark green 1975 Holden HJ Monaro, the only model and colour of its kind in Australia, among its ranks.
"It's probably the most classic car movie Australia has ever made," Mr Maloney said.
"There's a '57 Chev and a couple old Holdens and panel vans.
"You'll see some of the makes in the movie in the crowd."
Saturday night will be the biggest event the car club has run since before the pandemic, and there has been huge interest on social media.
"We'll probably have to cap it at 300 cars," Mr Maloney said.
"We'll have a COVID check-in and monitors in the crowd.
