The production company showing the movies will have its own tuner system, so those who would like to stay in their vehicles and listen to the movie, as per a traditional drive-in experience, can do so.

There also will be a spot set up in front of the parking lot for those attendees who want to relax outside of their car and watch the movies.  Please bring a chair or blanket for outdoor seating.
