Frequently Asked Questions
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
(1) Can I watch the first movie on one field and the second on the other field?
No, your ticket is for the double feature on one field only. You may only watch the movies on the field for which you purchased a ticket. You can buy another ticket for the other field at intermission. It is still a bargain at only $8.00 per person.
(2) Can you bring food in from the outside?
You are not prohibited from bringing in food. No grilling is allowed and alcohol is prohibited in our theatre. We will confiscate any drinks in glass bottles, including soda. However, we do have a concession stand with very tasty hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, nachos, drinks, etc. The film companies take a sizeable percentage of the ticket price and we pay our bills with money made in the concession stand, so please keep that in mind.
(3) Do you close the gates if it gets full, and what time do you recommend we arrive?
We have sold out and have had to turn people away, so I recommend that you arrive at least one and a half hours before showtime on Fridays and Saturdays during the summer.
(4) Do you recommend bringing chairs and a radio to sit outside?
Sure, it's fun to sit outside, just don't forget the bug repellent. Also, you are not allowed to sit on top of your vehicle.
(5) Does the show go on even with bad weather?
Yes, in the 13+ years that we have been open, we have only had to close down four times, three times for technical problems and once because a storm knocked out our electricity. Rain does not affect the picture. We do not give refunds for rain.
(6) Do we get to watch both movies for one price? How do you decide which two movies go together?
Yes, you get two movies for the price of one matinee at the indoor theater. It is important to us that we offer affordable family entertainment. We carefully choose our movies and negotiate with the movie studios to offer the best double features possible. Movie studios offer special double feature prices to drive-ins, but they often dictate which two movies can be combined for a double feature.
(7) Can you tell me what will be playing one/two/three weeks from now?
Unfortunately no, we know what we would like to show then, but are unable to confirm the booking until the Monday before the movie starts. If we do know in advance, it will be posted on the "Coming Soon" page of the website.
(8) How long does the season run?
The drive-in will be open until sometime in November, depending on attendance and movie availability.
(9) Can I bring my dog?
Yes, pets are allowed as long as they are well behaved, don't disturb others and are kept on a leash. Please clean up after your pet. We will stop allowing dogs, if we have to clean up after them.
(10) Do you accept credit, debit cards or checks?
We can only take cash at the ticket booth. There is an ATM at a gas station less than a mile away. Visa, MasterCard, and Discover debit and credit cards are accepted in the concession stand.
(11) Do you offer a discount for groups?
No, a percentage of the ticket price goes to the film studios and we cannot change the price of a ticket without approval of the studios. Even so, you are getting a bargain at $8 for adults and $4 for kids.
(12) If I leave the drive-in can I get back in with my ticket stub?
No, If you leave the drive-in, you must purchase another ticket to get back in.
(13) Why are the kid's movies on different fields?
We carefully choose our movies and negotiate with the movie studios to offer the best double features possible. Movie studios offer special double feature prices to drive-ins, but they often dictate which two movies can be combined for a double feature.
(14) Can some of us watch the movies on one field while others in our car watch the movies on another field?
If you are traveling with a group of people, please have everyone going to one field in one vehicle and eveyone going to another field in another vehicle. This is because very often the tickets for the separate fields are purchased at the entrance to that field and not at a centeral location. If you aren't bringing two vehilcles, the walkins must get out of the car at the ticket booth to purchase their tickets. (See question #1)
