A list of answers for the most asked questions.
1. How do I receive the sound?
You can receive the sound by tuning your fm radio to 101.1 FM. Any car or portable fm radio should work fine here.
2. How do you decide what movies to play, and why are they combined as they are?
In cooperation with our booking agency, we arrange double feature combinations we think will be the most popular with our customers. We try to make the combinations reasonably compatible... ie: you won't see a "MeanGirls" movie playing with "Bride of Dracula". It's a matter of personal taste, and not nearly an exact science... but we do the best we can!
3. Can I consume alcohol at the drive-in?
We discourage consumption of alcohol here. After all, it is a DRIVE-in, with obvious implications for people who drink, then head home in their cars. If our staff observes you out of your vehicle with alcoholic beverages, we will ask that you throw them away or leave the theatre. If you appear to be intoxicated, under 21 and "under the influence" or indulging in any "illegal substances" at any age, it's highly likely the Sheriff will stop by to say "Hello". The Drive-In is a family experience, and we appreciate your cooperation.
4. Can we bring the dog.
At this time we do not prohibit bringing a dog. They must kept inside your vehicle. If they become loud or aggressive then you will be asked to leave without a refund. Sorry, we love pets but we have others to think of. "WE ARE PET FRIENDLY TO FRIENDLY PETS"
5. Can we bring our lawn chairs?
Yes, absolutely. Try to organize yourselves in front of your vehicle so not to obstruct those walking between vehicles. Don't forget your blankets! Also a portable radio to hear the sound of the movie since you will be outside might be a good idea if you don't like the AM quality sound from the 50 year old pole speakers!
6. How do I disable my running lights ?
If you have day-time running lights in use on your car or truck, please do not start your vehicle during a feature. We understand you might need to get warm or turn on your defrosters. In "most" cases all you have to do is - turn off your vehicle, then set your parking brake, and then start your vehicle as normal. This should defeat your headlights from coming on while parked.
7. Can we smoke?
Inside your vehicles or in designated areas only.
8. Won't listening to the movie through my vehicle's FM radio drain my battery?
No -- so long as your battery is healthy and you turn your key only to the "Accessory" position -- and just operate your radio, not any lights, fans, etc. -- and your vehicle should start up after the movie with no problem. However, should you experience a dead battery, please let our Staff know -- and we'll gladly jump start your vehicle immediately at no charge. Remember -- "accessory" key position and operate your radio only.
9. Can I leave after the first movie?
Yes, we have an Intermission between features.
10. Can you tell me what will be playing on a certain date in the future?
Unfortunately no. We know what we would like to show then, but are unable to confirm the booking until the Mon. or Tues. before the weekend it will be shown.
11. How long does the season run?
Our drive-in usually opens the first weekend of April and runs through mid-September, depending on attendance and availability of films.
12. Do you accept credit/ debit cards and checks?
We only accept cash and credit. No checks, please.
13. What time do you start the first movie?
When its dark enough to get the picture up on the 60 foot wide screen, that's when we start. An indoor theater can flip a switch to dim the "house lights", we have to wait for God to dim ours...
14. Can we bring in food from the outside?
We do not want you to bring in food from the outside, however you are not prohibited from bringing in food. No grilling is allowed and alcohol is prohibited in our theatre. However, we do have a concession stand with mouth watering Nathan's All BEEF hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chili cheese dogs, nachos, popcorn, fountain drinks, candy, etc. The film companies take a sizeable percentage of the ticket price and we pay our bills with money made in the concession stand. If you bring outside food, you are pretty much only helping the film studios and not doing anything to keep the drive in up and going. We are not community owned, we are not a non profit organization. As such we operate like any other business with bills and employees (mostly high school kids) to pay and to keep operating.
