What movies will be playing the coming weeks?
The movie lineup is sometimes not finalized until the Monday or Tuesday prior to the coming weekend. This is because we want to play the best films available, taking into account their performance over the previous weekend.
Why are certain movies played together?
We try to screen two movies together with the same rating and that complement each other. The Film Distributors only permit certain movies to be screened together, so sometimes it is out of our control. We strive to screen all the major Hollywood blockbusters.
When is the Drive-In open?
7 nights per week.
What time do the gates open?
Gates open approx 45 minutes prior to Showtime.
On Friday and Saturdays the gates open at least an hour prior to Showtime.
It is best to arrive as early as possible on busy weekends when the weather is nice. Arrive early, find a good parking space, and enjoy the great outdoors & diner. If you don\'t like crowds please try coming on a weeknight.
