Drive-in nights are Fridays and Saturdays only for 10 dates so make sure to get your tickets soon.

You have the option of viewing from your car- or bring lawn chairs camp put on our parking lot. Did we mention that your ticket price includes non-alcoholic beverages and popcorn?

The lot opens at 7:30pm and the feature starts promptly at 8:30pm. There is parking for those who drive and wish to sit outside and each night is limited to 20 cars- the rest is for people sitting outside in designated socially distant areas.
