There will be 50 tickets available for each screening, which went on sale the morning of July 30. The tickets are only available online, and organizers ask that people only sign up for one movie, so that other people can have a turn.

When selecting a ticket, click on “choose date” and select which movie you would like to see. Only one ticket is necessary per vehicle, and a copy must be presented to staff in either printed or mobile form.

“If plans change, please let the organizers know as soon as possible as we can make this ticket available to another party who may have originally missed out,” stated organizers on the event page.

At the event, people are asked to stay in their vehicles and maintain physical distancing between other movie-goers.
