Moonlight Drive-in Cinema claims Hop Farm screenings 'sold out' despite cancelling all showings

A drive-in cinema company is still claiming to have sold out all of its film screenings in the county - despite cancelling all of its events.

Moonlight Drive-In Cinema is still failing to offer refunds, it is claimed, 10 days after families turned up to a deserted showing of The Grinch.

The Hop Farm in Paddock Wood, which has nothing to do with organising the event, has also been left out of pocket.

Numerous attempts by KentOnline to contact Moonlight Drive-in Cinema Ltd's owner Ben Stonehouse have gone unanswered.

Events up and down the country have been cancelled, with many claiming they were given no prior warning.

Facebook and Instagram accounts have all been taken down, however Moonlight Drive-in Cinema's website is still up and running.

The firm's Twitter account stopped responding to complaints last Tuesday.

Last week The Hop Farm confirmed all showings had been cancelled.

However Moonlight Drive-in Cinema's website still claims it is showing six films at the outdoor venue.

Tickets are unavailable, with the website stating tickets have sold out.

Miguel Fenton, head of marketing and communications at the Hop Farm, said: "They've taken all their gear away. We've had no approach from them to tell us what's going on.

"We've had a few customers call up, we're in the same boat as them.

"It doesn't look positive right now."
