Car Etiquette: We encourage you to think of your car-neighbours. This includes;

  • No car lights on during the film.
  • If your windows/rooftop are open, please keep your radio down.
  • Stay within your car’s perimeter – you can sit in the boot or just outside it as long as you are not obstructing or distracting others.
  • Front or back – you can face your car forward or reverse into the spot and sit in the boot, as long as you are not obstructing other’s views.
  • If you think you’ll need to leave early – please let our staff know when entering.
  • No smoking or vaping, even in your car.

Double Features: We are offering a couple of special double feature nights, just like the classic drive-in experience! On these nights your ticket price will include both films and you must arrive for the first film to view the second (no split tickets/arrival). There will be a short intermission between the film and if you think you’ll want to leave early; please let our staff know when entering.

Entry & Exit: Our friendly Sunset staff will provide you with a designated position. Whilst we will do our best to arrange for the best viewing experience for all, we encourage you to arrive when the gates open. If you need to exit before the film finishes, please approach our staff and they can assist you in exiting with minimal disturbance.
