Do I get to watch two movies with one ticket?
Yes! We show double features on each screen every night…that’s two full length movies, one after the other with a 10 minute intermission in between them.
How do I purchase tickets?
At the gate: you can purchase tickets with cash or credit card daily at the front gates starting at 5:30pm (Friday – Sunday) or at 6:00pm (Monday – Thursday).
Online: we recommend you purchase tickets online at www.coyotedrive-in.com. YOU CAN REDEEM YOUR TICKETS WITH THE CONFIRMATION CODE, THE CARD USED FOR THE PURCHASE OR PRINT OUT THE BAR CODE PAGE.
My online transaction failed but it looks like I was charged anyway…what gives?
In rare cases, usually if the transaction fails for some reason, the credit card company may place a temporary hold on the amount. (Sometimes listed on statement under “pending charges.”) It will fall off in 1-3 days. Please do not call until after 3 days…we cannot reverse a temporary hold.

General Admission is $6 for ages 12 and over, $5 for children 5 to 11. Children under 4 are free! (Prices subject to change.) You get TWO movies for that price.

Yes. We have a wide variety of craft beers, domestic and imported beers along with carefully selected red and white wines plus champagne. PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY. NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL ALLOWED.
Can I bring my own food, snacks, and drinks?
Sorry, no outside food and drinks allowed. Drive-ins generate most of their revenue from food and drink sales so please come early and visit the restaurant. We sourced most of our offerings from local vendors and prices are reasonable.

We broadcast sound through our own FM frequencies. You will need to have a working car radio or boom box. If you arrive by foot, bike, bus or horse, we have areas at the front with stand-alone speakers so you can hear. FM capable music players are a plus!

Can I turn my SUV/ Van/ Truck around and open the hatch?
We want you to be as comfortable as you can while you watch your movies, so feel free to turn your vehicle around. Please be sure that your dome lights are turned off so not to bother other movie-goers and that your hatch does not obstruct the view of those behind you.
Can I switch screens during the night to watch a different movie?
Sorry, but we cannot allow you to change screens. We are bound by licensing agreements with the film companies and your ticket provides you with admission to one double-feature on one screen only. You are more than welcome to purchase an additional ticket to the other screen before the movies start or during intermission.
Do I have to stay for both movies? Can I arrive later for the second movie only?
Please feel free to arrive and leave at any time. Our box office remains open until approximately 15 minutes after the latest starting second feature. If you arrive for your movie after it has started, we do ask that you turn off your headlights so as not to bother the other patrons. The ticket prices are the same if you stay for both movies or only wish to see one. PLEASE DRIVE CAREFULLY WHEN ENTERING AND EXITING. Speed limit 5 MPH.
