Refund / Cancellation Policy

Due to the limited capacity for the event, once a parking spot is purchased, all sales are final and there will be no refunds. However, if you cannot make the show for any reason, you may transfer your ticket to a family member or friend to use.

In the case of inclement weather, we will communicate via email and social media if weather or other natural occurrences threaten the drive-in movie for that evening. If a show needs to be rescheduled due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, tickets will automatically be valid and transferred for a rescheduled show date in the future. If a cancelled show is not rescheduled, a full refund will be provided.
