All Parking is General Admission
Tickets are general admission and per vehicle (rather than per person), there is no assigned parking. Staff will do their best to accommodate all vehicles. For sightline reasons, taller vehicles such as SUVs will be parked towards the rear of the venue so as not to block the views of smaller cars (when possible).

Ticketing and Check In
Upon purchasing a ticket, you will receive a confirmation email with your ticket and instructions. Tickets can be printed at home and brought to the venue or displayed on a mobile device. There will be no Will Call at the venue as all tickets will be delivered electronically. Festival staff will scan tickets through the window of your vehicle.

Between Shows
All vehicles must exit after each program. If you have tickets to two programs on the same night, you will need to exit the lot and re-enter between programs.

If a program is at RUSH, tickets may be released and sold at noon on the day of the event, and may be purchased online. Keep an eye on RUSH program pages for available tickets.

Late Arrivals
In order to ensure all patrons have an enjoyable experience please arrive early. Any late arrivals, 20 minutes after the showing has begun, will not be permitted into the event. Tickets are neither non-refundable nor exchangeable.

Restroom Use 
When patrons exit their vehicles to use the restroom facilities, they must wear a face mask over their nose and mouth at all times and adhere to protocols laid out by restroom docents, e.g., one person at a time in the restroom, 6ft apart in lines, etc. The restrooms at the Drive-In are gender neutral.

Occupancy for Vehicle 
Each vehicle may only be occupied by members of the same household who have already been in close contact with each other.

Car headlights must be turned off during the film. Prior to arrival, please locate how to manually turn car headlights off.
