How to Reserve Tickets

Ticket reservations begin at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, August 5, 2020. Click here to reserve a ticket, scroll down, and choose the location you want to attend.

What to Bring

You’ll want to bring an FM radio for audio or use your car radio. Our car battery drained during the last drive-in movie we went to. Ugh! Hopefully that won’t happen to you- I don’t know what I did wrong!

A mask is required if you are outside your vehicle, so don’t forget your face coverings.


  • You can bring as many family members as you have seat belts.
  • Don’t bring alcohol because it won’t be permitted.
  • Only one car is admitted per ticket and they won’t allow walk-ups.
