Drone show promises to light up Hollywood

HOLLYWOOD Golf Club will play host to a drone show, promoting Paramount’s new streaming service, Paramount+.

Starting at 10.30pm tonight (June 20), the show will feature much loved cartoon characters including Star Trek, Spongebob Squarepants and Mission: Impossible.

The drones are operated by the company behind the Queen’s Jubilee drone show, who wowed millions with the light display above Buckingham Palace.

Featuring 600 drones – more than the 400 used in the jubilee show – the nine-minute spectacle will bring the glamour of Hollywood, Los Angeles, more than 5,000 miles to its West Midlands namesake.

Co-founder and director of SKYMAGIC, the firm behind the Queen’s Jubilee drone show, Mungo Denison, said: “This show has taken months to finesse due to the attention to detail required to give a faithful representation of the various characters we are depicting.

“It is quite a romp through Paramount’s most extraordinarily well-known characters and iconic images. It’s a phenomenal programming line up.

“This is the largest drone show the UK has ever seen and where better to showcase this content but Hollywood. We will light up the night there.”

The drone show will also feature a QR code which viewers will be able to scan and be treated to a free seven-day trial of the streaming service.

Debbie O’Reilly, club secretary said: “We have arranged for the bar to be open until midnight that evening so if you would like to come and watch from the lounge or patio area you are most welcome.

“It’s really exciting for us to be hosting this event, and I hope it’ll be a great turnout.”
