Here are a couple of previous videos that highlight our policies. Please note, online reservations now are available for up to 150 vehicles each night.

Is there a double feature every night? Do I have to stay for both movies?

Yes, we offer two movies each night. That’s quite a value if you ask us! You can watch one or both.

Where and how do I park my vehicle?

Simply park your vehicle between the white poles, making sure to steer closer to one side. If you have a big truck or SUV, we ask that you park in the back of the theater so as not to obscure the viewing pleasure of others.

What do I need to bring?

Treat your drive-in experience like a tailgate event. Bring some outdoor chairs and games. Don’t forget your friends and family!

How do I hear the movie?

While we have old fashioned speakers in our first four rows, you can also stream audio directly through your car’s stereo on FM 88.7. Just turn your key to accessory mode to keep the stereo on. If you don’t have FM stereo, bring a portable radio.

Is the drive-in open during inclement weather?

We don’t let the weather spoil our fun! We are open rain or shine.

Do you take credit cards?

Yes, we accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover.

Can I bring my dog?

We love furry friends and allow you to bring dogs. We ask only that you keep them on a leash.

Is there an intermission between the movies?

We allow 15 minutes between shows—enough time to use the restroom and refill your popcorn bucket.

Can tickets be purchase online?

Gift cards can be purchased online, but tickets are sold on a first-come, first served basis at the box office only. We suggest arriving early to claim your parking spot and to allow time to visit the snack bar, play on the green space and relax before your movie starts.

Do you sell food?

Do we ever! Our concession stand offers pizza, hot dogs, brats, nachos, popcorn, ice cream treats, cotton candy, Coke products and a variety of candies.

If I sneak someone into the drive-in, will I get in trouble?

Yes, so don’t try it!

Can I put something on the big screen?

No, but you can use the microphone to declare your love or wish someone a very happy birthday.

What is the speed limit?

Remember that our patrons are kids and people rushing to the bathroom, so keep it slow!

What if my battery dies during the movie?

Our staff is fantastic at hooking your car to a jumper box and getting you on your way. If you are still concerned, throw that 80s boombox on your shoulder!

Can I bring alcoholic beverages to the drive-in?

Yes, alcohol is allowed, but we ask that you drink responsibly.

How do I get a job at the drive-in?

Stop by the concession stand, and we will determine if you’re cool enough to work here.

Can we grill at the drive-in?

Because of our fire regulations, we cannot allow barbecues. We do, however, offer a concession stand stocked with dinner items and snacks to fill your bellies.

Do you offer group discounts?

Unfortunately, we do not offer group discounts. If you have a big enough group, we do host off-season private parties during weeknights in the spring and fall. Check out the Events section for more information.

Do you sell merchandise?

Go to our Shop tab and get yourself some gift cards and graphic tees.

How will I know what's showing?

Simply sign up for our weekly emails (sent every Monday!), follow us on Facebook—or do both. You can’t get enough Valle!
