1) When do the movies begin and when do you open each night?
We show at "dusk". We open the
theatre box office at: 6:30 PM. Please note: on Friday and Saturday nights, we tend to get long lines of vehicles

the south (Middletown, Strausburg, etc.) and coming directly up Rt. 11, please read the new line-up rules on our Driving Directions
is your booking policy?
exhibit G, PG, PG-13 and some mild R rated films geared towards family or young adult entertainment. We do not exhibit "hard
core" R or NC-17 films which contain heavy language or graphic violent, sexual content. After all-- we are as our
name implies: "A Family Drive-In Theatre"
3) How often do you change your movies?
We change our films on Fridays. For box office hits, we will normally keep them as one of
our double features for two,three, four or five weeks.
4) Do you show 3D movies?
No- 3D and digital film technology will not be available to the drive-in for a few years; primarily
because the current 3D and digital projection systems will not work in a drive-in theatre environment.
5) Why don't you charge by the "car load"?
The movie studios requires a per person
admission charge for recent movie releases.
6) Can I switch screens to
see different movies?

for the other movie you want to see. "Screen Switching" as it is called in the industry, is specifically prohibited
in the movie contracts with multiple screen theatres; unless the patron pays for another movie admission to see the "other"

therefore children over age 12 should not be allowed to use playground equipment.

Can I bring in outside food?
may bring in outside food-- but, please realize that outside food seriously hurts the chances of this theatre surviving for
years to come. Unfortunately, the movie studios take the majority of $$ paid for admission, leaving this theatre with
having to survive on concessions--so if you decide to bring in outside food-- we ask that you also patronize our concession
stand. Your patronage of our concession stand will be greatly appreciated and will help us keep movies under the stars for
years to come!!!
15) Can organized groups attend a movie?
We would love to talk with groups that want
to attend a movie "under the stars" with us-- if you have a group that would like to plan an outing-- please feel
free to contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone: (540) 514-6145.
