Casey’s Drive In allowed movie fans a choice of two films to watch from the comfort of their own car in Winkfield.
Musical Grease was shown on September 14 and Disney hit Ratatouille on September 15 to packed audiences.
The event, in aid of Sebastian’s Action Trust, raised about £1,000 across the weekend, with the charity also holding a raffle on both days to boost funds.
With the sound broadcast through a radio frequency, the AA was on hand in case any car batteries were in need of recharging.
Organiser Casey Michaels said she could not believe it when she saw people dancing on top of their cars and singing along to hit songs from Grease.
She said: “People were going absolutely crazy when the film’s famous songs came on so it was quite a spectacle to be honest.
“The atmosphere was just superb and everyone that came made it such a great event.”
After the success of this year’s drive-in, Miss Michaels said that she and sister Carly are already planning another installment.
“We are very keen to do another one; we hope so anyway. We just need to see if there is enough interest first of all,” she said.
