Tickets are first come, first serve. No advanced tickets are sold.
Current Rules and Regulations:
-Normally two cars are parked between two poles. We will be operating at half capacity, so only one car between two poles.
-Due to us having limited spaces available, a surcharge fee of $5 will be added to each vehicle in addition to your ticket purchases. A free surgical mask will be included for each ticket purchased. The surcharge also helps us cover the increased cost of sanitizing, food costs, payroll, supplies, and outside food brought in. This fee is temporary until some of the social distancing guidelines are lifted.
-Concession stand will be open for carryout only. Two walk up windows with glass shields will be taking orders. Lines will be spread out in 6ft spaces.
-Restrooms will have every other stall open. A mask will be required to enter restrooms. We will have restroom attendants to ensure only a certain amount of people enter at a time, and they will sanitize throughout the night. Lines will be spread out in 6ft spaces.
***UPDATE*** Setting up lawn chairs outside of your vehicle is allowed. Sitting in your tailgate or in your pick up bed is allowed. Your hatch must be level with the roof of your vehicle. Bring a rope to keep it tied down.
-No one can play on the grassy areas under the screens or along the perimeter.
***UPDATE*** We are allowing our portable radio rentals. If you don’t want to turn on your car every thirty minutes to prevent your car battery dying, rent a portable FM radio.
-Please practice 6 foot social distancing when in restrooms or waiting in line.
-Temporary weather closing policy: We will be monitoring the weather for rain and will announce on Facebook any closures by 5pm daily.
-As a reminder, we are a privately owned establishment and you are on private property. Anyone who violates these rules will be asked to leave with no refund.
-By purchasing a ticket, you agree to follow our rules and regulations.
Gates open at 7:30pm. Movies start at around 9:25pm.
***Additional Note from Management:
We at US 23 Drive In have spent many weeks trying to figure how we can open safely, open economically and at the same time try to find employees to staff the drive in. We will be operating at half capacity. We already know this year will be a loss no matter what we do. We also understand that we will never make everyone happy. But we love our customers, we welcome all opinions good or bad, and we read them all and take everything into consideration. This is truly what makes this the best country in the world.
