FAQ

Welcome to the Full Moon Drive-In

ANNUAL SEASON: Our average season runs from around mid-March through the end of October,  or so. Weather and available films can lengthen (or shorten) the season a bit. We open every third Saturday of the month and Wednesday, October 21st.

ADMISSION: $25.00 per carload, $8.00 for adult walk ups, and $5.00 for children under 4 for walk ups.

BOXOFFICE HOURS: Gates open at least 1 1/2 hours before showtime.  There will be 60 minutes of live music and other surprises in store.

SHOWTIME: Unlike indoor theatres, a drive-in can show films only at night. This means that our shows start at different times, based on local weather and the time of year. Early on in the season, our movies can start as early as 7:30 (we normally don’t start earlier). By July, it can be as late as 9PM. That’s why our showtimes change, and are advertised as “Dusk”. It’s a time when we think it’s dark enough to put a good picture on the screen.

ARRIVE EARLY! Drive-In theatres across the country have been “rediscovered”, and are extremely popular… especially on nice evenings during the Summer. We recommend you plan ahead and arrive early when attending on these movies. The best parking spots go to the first in line.

FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED. ONE SPACE PER CAR. SPACES MAY NOT BE RESERVED OR SAVED.

MOVIE SOUND: Your car or portable FM radio can be tuned into the station we will share with you onsite. We DO have concert grade outdoor speakers so please feel free to enjoy the film outside of your vehicle.

MEALS & SNACKS: We proudly present our full-service “Concession Central”. You’ll find all the usual theater fare provided from various local vendors

CREDIT CARDS, CHECKS, etc: We welcome your Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express credit and debit cards for admission, concession and gift card purchases. We do not accept checks, and there is no ATM at the Drive-In.

FAQs: 

  1. How do I receive the sound?
    You can receive the sound by tuning your FM radio to  our signal.  Any car or portable FM radio should work fine here. If you don’t have an FM radio we have concert grade speakers for you to be able to hear the movie outside of your car.
  2. How do you decide what movies to play, and why are they combined as they are?
    We arrange double features we think will be the most popular with our customers. We try to make the experience very enjoyable. 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 theater. 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.

A General List of our House Rules:

  • Management Availability: We are always available to help with any situation that may require it. Should field or concession staff be unable to resolve any issue to your satisfaction, please ask to speak with a manager.
  • Parking Policy: One space per car. Spaces may not be reserved or saved. Outdoor furniture must be placed between your vehicle and the screen. For your safety, please do not lie on blankets. Traffic may not see you! In order to maximize parking availability, theater personnel may ask you to move your vehicle to another area. Please see our refund policy below, should this be unacceptable to you.
  • Refund Policy: We do not offer refunds except in cases where you must leave before the show starts or if you can not find a suitable parking location when you arrive (you must exchange your ticket for a refund). When the entrance is congested on busy nights, please ask a concession or field attendant for assistance. Refunds are not given to anyone who is ejected from the theater.
  • No parking on the outside perimeter of the theatre. You’re welcome to meet your friends here, but please bring your vehicle in with you. The outside perimeter is an enforced tow-away zone at all times.
  • NO “OUT & IN”. If you leave during the evening, your ticket may not be used to re-admit you to the drive-in.
  • The SPEED LIMIT: within the theatre is 10 MPH. There are pedestrians everywhere, so please observe this limit and drive carefully. For everyone’s safety, any negligent driving may result in your being asked to leave the theatre.
  • Alcohol & Marijuana policies posted above.
  • Fireworks of any and all kinds are never allowed on the property.
    This includes items as seemingly innocent as sparklers and “snap-its”. For the safety of all, this is considered a zero-tolerance issue here.
  • NO PETS
  • You must be in control of your lights, and they must be off while you’re parked.
    Other distracting lights on, in and around your vehicle, including strobes, neons, blinking/flashing novelties, video displays and TV sets must also be turned off.
  • Shoes must be worn at all times. Please do not carry shoeless children. 
    We usually have good parking for most vehicles, large and small. However, for the viewing comfort of all, larger vehicles are required to park in designated areas. Your ticket will have this information on it. Field staff may designate parking, at our discretion.
    If you can’t find a satisfactory spot before the show starts, we’ll be happy to refund your ticket at your request.
    Theater staff may designate parking locations for any vehicle at any time.
  • Tie hatchbacks & other doors level with the top of your vehicle.
    This helps prevent you from blocking the view of the person behind you. Twine or a short piece of small rope or wire works very well. If you plan to have speakers or people on top of your vehicle, or you prefer to have your hatchback all the way up, please expect to park in the back rows.
  • Outside Seating: If you plan to enjoy the show outside of your vehicle, please sit between your vehicle and the screen. Do not occupy room in another space, walkway, etc.
    Lawn chairs, etc, only. lying on the ground is not permitted.
  • Each vehicle is entitled to one space.
  • Be considerate of the folks around you. Do not raise voices, radios, or noises loud enough to disturb other patrons.
    This especially applies to subwoofers and high-powered sound systems. We’re glad you can enjoy your electronic investment here, but it must not be (in our judgment) excessively loud.
  • Do not sound your horn. There is no part of our program where you’ll ever be asked to sound your horn, and we ask that you not do this for any reason. If you need the attention of theatre staff, you’ll find us in or around the snack bar throughout the evening.
  • Never put a light of any sort onto the screen, including spot lights and laser devices.
  • No barbecues or other cooking activities on drive-in property, including outside perimeter.
  • No open flame, except for the use of citronella candles, and items like “PIC” mosquito coils.
