Here’s some simple drive-in etiquette’s to follow to ensure everyone has a great time.

  • All car lights must be turned off before the movie starts.
  • If your windows/rooftop are open, please keep your radio down.
  • Stay within your car – you can sit in the boot or on the back of your ute. Just note your boot may be strapped down.
  • 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.
  • Please follow all directions from our team. Our traffic managers will guide you were to park based on the car height and remaining availability when you arrive.
  • If you think you’ll need to leave early – please let our staff know when entering.
  • No smoking or vaping, even in your car.


Just like the old-school drive-ins you will be able to access the movie’s audio through your car’s FM radio. 

When you arrive on the night you will be given a frequency to tune into. 

We encourage you to check your radio beforehand or you can also bring an FM radio to listen to the film through that.

Whilst everyone is listening to the same movie, we encourage you to monitor the volume.
