ARENA THEATER DRIVE-IN RULES
Masks and social distancing are a MUST! Please read the following for more details
The movie will start at 8 pm. Please arrive no sooner than 7:15 pm. You will be checked in at the gate and guided to your parking space. Cars will be placed on a first-come, first-served basis and based on size of car; trucks will be parked in the back row. Cars must be in place 10 minutes before the movie starts. Space is limited, we ask that attendees come in regular sized vehicles when possible and avoid huge trucks. Thanks!
Each vehicle may only be occupied by members of the same household who have already been in close contact with each other.
CONDUCT AT DRIVE-IN
You must remain in your vehicle at all times, except to visit the restroom (one person at a time, unless an adult is accompanying a child). You are required to wear facial coverings (masks) and practice social distancing at all times when outside your car. You cannot sit outside of your vehicle (no lawn chairs or watching from the back of your truck or hatchback).
ADVANCE TICKETS AND POPCORN
Tickets and prepackaged popcorn are available in advance only, click on the ticket link on the movie page (scroll down) or use the links on the right to purchase movie tickets or a combo of ticket and popcorn.
Once you’re on the ticket page, click on the showtime to start your order.
Movie tickets are $30 per car for up to three people, extra people (fourth or fifth person) are $5 each. We recommend no more than five people per car. Sorry, no refills at the drive-in. Popcorn orders will be handed to patrons at the gate.
Order your tickets/concessions early, space is limited, 28 cars maximum per showing. Once capacity is reached, online sales will automatically end.
OTHER FOOD / SNACKS / SOFT DRINKS / ALCOHOL POLICY
This is an alcohol-free event, no alcohol is allowed on-site.
Point Arena Pizza will offer slices, salads, and sodas through online orders only. Please click on this link www.pointarenapizza.com/order-here to order. NO orders can be placed at the drive-in.
RECYCLING AND TRASH
Please take your recyclables and trash home: for safety reasons no public garbage cans will be available at the drive-in.
FM RADIO NEEDED
The sound for the movie will be transmitted via a radio frequency only (no speakers), and you will need an FM car radio or a transportable radio (“boom box”) with FM frequencies to access the sound. We will provide you with the FM station upon arrival.
MIND YOUR LIGHTS
Any light will be very distracting to the audience around you. Make sure to turn off your headlights and dome lights. As the radio will be running throughout the movie, you may want to turn on your engine once in a while to eliminate the risk of your battery dying. Remember that many cars feature automatic headlights when the engine starts. Please check ahead if you can override the setting or bring a blanket to cover your lights. We will have jumper cables on site for those who need them!
If you have to flick on the dome light to look for something in your car, please don’t have it on for a lengthy period of time and make an effort to keep your foot off your brake pedal. In a dark environment, brake lights provide quite the surprising glow.
We will have a portable restroom (porta potty) and a hand washing/sanitizing station available. Volunteers will be on hand to ensure social distancing, the wearing of facial coverings, and to clean and sanitize the facility after each use.
Shows may be canceled due to weather. In that case, refunds will be issued or tickets moved to a different night.
CONTACT AT THE DRIVE-IN
Once the movie starts, if you need assistance and a volunteer is not available, please text 707-813-0784 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone reception maybe spotty, we recommend you text or email.
Thanks for following these rules and enjoy the show…
