Food & Drinks

All beer and wine must be consumed within the restaurant or outdoor patio area. Beer and wine can not be brought back to you vehicle at any time.

Absolutely! Please come hungry and thirsty. We have all kinds of options at reasonable prices available in the Coyote Canteen.

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.

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.

Enjoying Your Movies

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!

You are welcome to sit anywhere outside your vehicle, in lawn chairs or on blankets. We do ask that you place lawn chairs in front of your car so that you do not take up additional parking. For safety and courtesy of others, we cannot allow you to sit on top of your vehicle.

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.

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.

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.

We understand that some cars need to stay running to run the radio, A/C, or Heater. Our Policy is you may keep your car running if you don’t have the following.

1. After market muffler
2. Diesel Engine
3. Running / Head lights that stay on
4. Unusually loud engine or fan

This is to ensure the best viewing possible for all our guest.

If your battery dies and you are unable to restart your car, please come to the Canteen and speak with any employee. We have portable battery chargers for your assistance.
