Four different films will be screened over four consecutive nights. Up to 300 cars are ticketed to attend each night. Additional dates and films will be added to the schedule throughout the fall season.
Tickets go on sale Tuesday, August 11 at 10 a.m. on its website. They are roughly $60 per car, per evening.When you arrive, each car will receive a package included with two Coca-Cola product bottles, City Pop popcorn and theatre-sized M&M’s and Twizzlers.
Chick-Fil-A sandwiches are available for discounted pre-purchase online or cashless payment. This will include a sandwich, cookies, chips and a drink.
Every film will be shown on an LED screen in the Lower South Lot 2. Audio will be delivered via an FM frequency. Guests are asked to remain in their cars for the duration of the film.
