Weather Policy & Rules

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

The Summer Drive-In reserves the right to cancel due to bad weather. Customers will receive “rain check” passes for purchased tickets only for cancellations before or during the first movie and not the second movie. USA Hockey Arena will take all precautions to ensure the safety of our guests. High winds that compromise the equipment and any lightening will cause the drive-in to close. The weather policy is at the discretion of the drive-in movie manager on duty.

Honking horns, barbeques, open fires, alcohol, wandering into wetlands and/or wooded areas are not allowed.

Headlights should be dimmed upon entry to the theatres. Once tickets are purchased for movies, please note that “theatre jumping” is prohibited.

Driving vehicles to the concession stand and the restrooms is not allowed; please walk to these locations. Walking to or near the wooded or wetland area’s is strictly prohibited.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can we bring food to the drive-in?
There is a convenient concession trailer centrally located in the parking lot between featuring your favorite movie snacks including ice cold pop, popcorn, candy, hot dogs, pizza and more. Cash, Visa, Discover, and MasterCards accepted. You can also dine-in, carry-out or order food for delivery right to your car from CJ’s Brewing Company (734.453.4455) right on site. No alcohol is permitted.

How do we hear the movie when we are there?
Tune your radio to a specific FM channel (information provided at the theatre). The best way to listen is to bring a portable radio to set next to your lawn chairs or if you’re worried about your car battery dying.

How early can we arrive?
The gates and the ticket booths to the drive-in open at 7:30pm. Movies start at dusk.

Is there space for kids to play catch?
Yes, we have lots of room for the kids to play catch – but please be considerate to other movie goers.
