What happens if my car battery dies?
No need to panic. Walk to the 50’s Cafe and ask for a boost. We are happy to give you a FREE jumpstart with a portable battery pack ASAP. Crew members are available in the 50’s Cafe even at the end of the 2nd movie.
Do you close after the summertime?
We are open year-round. During the summertime and school holidays, we are open every night. In the fall and winter, we are open 3-5 days a week.
Do you show movies if it rains?
We show movies rain or shine. If the rain is so heavy that it inhibits the view of the screen and we have to stop the show, we will issue rainchecks for the double-feature you are watching. Issuing rainchecks in other circumstances is solely up to the discretion of Stars & Stripes management.
How do you get the movie sound?
Use your car radio or portable stereo to tune to one of our 3 drive-in radio stations. Be sure to tune into the designated station upon arrival for entertainment, announcements, and giveaways!
Can I watch a movie on one screen and then watch a second movie on another screen?
Tickets are issued for a double-feature on the same screen. You may watch a second feature on another screen, but you must exit the theatre and purchase new tickets from the box office. Switching theatres or turning around and watching a movie on another screen is prohibited. We must enforce this policy to comply with film licensing rules. People in violation of this policy will be courteously asked to leave the theatre.
How do I keep my hatch-back from blocking my neighbor’s view?
Make sure your hatch does not open higher than the roof line of your SUV or van. If you back into your parking space, please center your vehicle on the ramp so the back end will not be pitched up as high. You may also ask for string at the box office to tie the hatch down to the appropriate level.
How much room do I have to put out my lawn chairs?
Each car is allowed a 12 ft x 20 ft parking space. Please place lawn chairs in front of your vehicle so you do not take up more than one space. We try to only enforce this rule on busy nights when it is necessary to accommodate other patrons. If you need more space to spread out, we would encourage you to visit the drive-in during the weekdays.
How do you come up with your double-features?
We try our best to match up movies that “make a good pair.” Several factors play into this weekly decision-making process that include the price of each movie, demand to see a movie, the storylines, and the ratings. We work hard to bring you the movies you want to see at a great price.
Do you have a list of movies you will be playing in the future?
As we schedule movies we will add them to the calendar and our interactive movie listings. Another great way to know what is coming up on the big screen is to join Movie Mail and receive a weekly email that details the upcoming movies. As soon as we know our weekly bookings and upcoming hits, we provide that information in Movie Mail so you can plan ahead.
Are pets allowed at the drive-in?
We are animal lovers. However, in consideration of the movie-watching experience and safety of others, we ask that you keep Fido in your car. Animals are not allowed on the playground or inside the 50’s Cafe.
