Here are a few questions we frequently get asked:
- When do I have to wear a mask at the drive-in during the pandemic?
Any time you leave your vehicle or parking space, you should wear a mask or other facial covering. It should cover your mouth and nose at all times. The health and safety of our customers, employees, and family are of utmost importance. All staff will be wearing masks. You should too.
- Can we sit outside our vehicles in chairs or on blankets?
Yes, you can sit outside near your vehicle.
- Can we turn our vehicle around and watch the movie from the bed of our truck or inside our van?
Yes, but remember that nothing can be higher than the roofline of your vehicle: this includes your hatch, your head, your radio, etc.
- When will the drive-in start showing movies again during the pandemic?
Since the last night of operation (March 21), we have been comforted knowing with 100% certainty that no one has been infected at our drive-in. We would like to maintain that safety record. Three factors will govern our reopening for movies: 1) the status and severity of the virus in the county and region; 2) how well people abide by our new pandemic safety rules (i.e., wearing of masks, maintaining of safe distances from others, etc.); and 3) the availability of new, commercially viable movies from the studios. At the present time, we are looking at a reopening timeframe of mid August.
- Can I watch the first movie on one field and the second on the other field?
No. Your ticket is for one double feature on one field only. You can buy another ticket for another field at intermission. It is still a bargain at only $9.00 per adult & $5 per child aged 4 to 11.
- 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 theater. However, we do have a concession stand with very tasty hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, chicken sandwiches, 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. Please keep that in mind.
- 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. It is recommended that you arrive at least one and a half hours before showtime on Fridays and Saturdays during the summer (even earlier for blockbuster summer movies).
- 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.
- Does the show go on even with bad weather?
Yes. We’ve even been open during hurricanes! Rain does not affect the picture. We do not give refunds for rain. We may delay or pause the movie during severe electrical storms to protect our equipment.
- Do we get to watch both movies for one price? How do you decide which two movies go together?
You get two movies for the price of one. 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.
- Can you tell me what will be playing one/two/three weeks from now?
Unfortunately, no. We might know what we would like to show in the future. However, we 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.
- How long does the season run?
The drive-in season typically begins at the beginning of March and lasts until the end of November.
- 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 be sure to clean up after your pet.
- 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, Discover & ATM cards are accepted in the concession stand. No checks are accepted.
- If I leave, can I get back in with my ticket stub?
There is no readmission to the theater. If you leave, for any reason, you must pay to re-enter. If the movie hasn’t started, and you need to leave, stop by the ticket booth and we can help you.
- Do you offer a discount for groups, students, military, first-responders, teachers, etc.?
No. We offer to everyone the lowest price possible, while being mindful of studio demands and the operational costs of running the drive-in. We believe that $9 for adults aged 12 & over, $5 for kids 4 to 11 and no charge for kids 3 & under is a bargain.
- Can you donate passes to my school, group, etc.?
We are a true Mom & Pop business. We get a large number of requests for donations. We can not respond to them all. We do a few charity events throughout the year so that we can give back to the community in a way that works best for us.
- How do I apply for employment?
We are always accepting applications. Please pick one up in person at the ticket booth any Friday or Saturday that we are open.
How do I turn off my automatic lights?
For 98% of the vehicles manufactured, there are a couple of easy ways to disable the lights:
Power off everything (remove key if equipped)
Engage parking (emergency) brake
Power on (insert key and turn to ACC position -or- push button start once without foot on brake)
On most vehicles this will keep headlights off
On some newer vehicles equipped with touchscreens, you must go through the settings options on-screen to
disable the headlights from coming on. These will vary according to the make of the vehicle. Be sure to familiarize yourself with your vehicle before attending.
