BPR Halloween Drive-In Movie Instructions and Rules

The safety of our staff and guests is our top priority. In accordance with current state, county, and city regulations regarding COVID-19, we have implemented extra safety measures to minimize contact. The information below is subject to change based on future recommendations and/or requirements from city, county, state, or public health authorities. 

Arrival and Parking  

Please park so that there is one space between vehicles. Our volunteers will help direct you to the appropriate parking zone based on your vehicle’s height and color-coded flyer. High-profile vehicles will need to park at the back to ensure that they do not obstruct the view of smaller vehicles. High-profile vehicles include vehicles with roof storage containers, kayaks, large pick-up trucks, vans, etc. If possible, remove rooftop carriers or racks to help limit obstacles for viewing. If your car seating is significantly lower than the height of your rack, your view may be obstructed. The decision to direct your car to a specific space is at the discretion of event staff. Once parked, you may not drive away until instructed by event staff. No engine idling is permitted. All vehicles must face forward; no vehicle may back into a space.  

Departure 

Vehicles may not leave before the film has ended. If you need to leave urgently, please call 303-483-5003 so that we may assist you to exit the facility safely and with minimal disruption.  

Stay in Vehicle 

You must stay inside your vehicle at all times unless using the restroom. Do not set up chairs or blankets outside your vehicle. Do not sit in the back of pickup trucks or open tailgates or hatches. All doors must remain closed. You cannot socialize between vehicles or in groups. At this time, we are only allowed to offer admission to cars; no walk-ins, bikes, lawn chairs, blankets, or additional outdoor seating. 

Sound and Radio  

Audio will be broadcast via the FM radio in your vehicle on 90.5 FM. The frequency will also be given out at check-in. Please tune in before the film begins. Sound is broadcast in FM only; apps on mobile devices will not work. You can also bring a portable transistor radio as a backup. If you are using your car stereo, set your key to auxiliary so you don’t drain the battery. We will have a portable car battery charger available just in case.  

HOW TO TURN ONLY THE RADIO ON: For many newer vehicles - pressing the power button once (without pressing brake pedal) should start accessory mode from which you can turn on the radio. Pressing power again should turn on all car systems without starting the engine (operate the windows, etc.). Pressing power a third time should turn the car off. 

Headlights 

Headlights and exterior lighting must be off during the movie, no exceptions. Please research how to shut off your lights before arriving at the event. If you have issues with your vehicle lights or are needing your car to be running, you will be asked to move to the back row and remain there for the duration of the film.  

Violations

Any violation of these policies may result in you being asked to leave. We must all comply with these guidelines in order to maintain a safe and positive experience for everyone. We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. Enjoy the film!
