Your admission is good for two (or more) movies, which means you get 'em at half-price (or better). We suggest that you arrive at the theatre early to obtain a great spot, especially on weekends and holidays. If you plan on arriving later to see the 2nd show, we suggest getting to the box office 90 minutes after the 1st show starts.
Our audio is broadcast via FM radio, so be sure to have a good sound system in your vehicle. Many fans enjoy parking a truck backwards and filling the bed with pillows and blankets. Others bring lawn chairs, which are fine so long as you stay in front of your vehicle (but not in the driving lane or obstructing anyone's view).
We have a full snack bar with traditional movie treats, ice cream, popcorn and beverages along with a grill and fryers serving a variety of hot food including our famous poutine!
Yes, absolutely. In fact, most of our rain showers will occur in the afternoon or early evening before showtime and we have a nice clear evening. Rain in Ottawa has usually long-passed down here, however the movies show just fine if it is raining.
We have to wait until Mother Nature turns out the lights!
No, you may leave anytime you wish.
We broadcast via FM Stereo. Turning your key to the "Accessory" position will consume very little power. If you're concerned about your battery or wish to sit outside, a portable radio works just fine.
Sitting on top of your vehicle is not permitted, not only for safety but it also blocks the view of others. On busy nights, lawn chairs must be placed in front of your vehicle. Pick-up truck beds (parked backwards) are great for viewing!
We do not offer group discounts, but are happy to accomodate your group. Hollywood realizes most of our ticket price and does us the favour of honouring the drive-in tradition of double-features (something indoor theatres aren't allowed to do). Essentially, you're getting two movies for the price of one, and since our pricing includes tax, we think that's fair.
Nope, nope........and (you guessed it), nope!
This is possible on many nights, though we ask you to refrain from doing so on Saturday nights and Holiday Sundays. ALWAYS check in with the manager at the snack bar who will direct you to a suitable parking spot which will not block driveways or the view of other patrons.
We don't, however for the earlier portion of the season when our "flying guests" can be present around dusk, we recommend bringing some fibreglass window-screen (available at any hardware) and some magnets or painter's tape. Keeping even one window open and screened will allow plenty enough air in to stay comfortable and fog-free. If sitting outside, citronella candles work well. We generally will have some "PIC" coils and bug spray for sale, but best to bring some just in case. Once the ground dries up, they mostly leave us alone.
Well behaved dogs are welcome provided they are kept on a leash and cleaned up after.
