          COVID 19 SAFETY MEASURES (Please Read)

All recommended and required policies, directives, and orders from the Indiana state and local health departments will be followed.

The following COVID-19 Policies have been put into effect to help ensure a safe environment for our patrons & staff. These policies may be revised, as we receive updates. We ask for your patience & cooperation during this time.

6 feet social distancing must be maintained at any time you are not in, on or within reach of your vehicle. If leaving your vehicle, a face covering is highly encouraged. Gathering with other vehicles will not be permitted at this time.

Per state & local guidelines we will be operating at 50% capacity. Instead of parking two vehicles between the poles, now we ask that you park only one between the posts. Arrive early for we are on a first come first served basis. The speakers on our posts are available. They are regularly cleaned; however, we suggest bringing disinfectant wipes if using our speakers. We recommend listening to the show on your radio.

CONCESSIONS may be ordered from our window on the North Side of the concession stand with social distancing being maintained. Orders will be picked up on the opposite side (southside) of the building. Our staff will text you or call when your order is ready for pick up. Patrons will not be permitted in the concession stand at this time. To help reduce the length of lines if possible, please send one person to place your order. Every vehicle that enters the drive-in has always been handed a printed menu of all our offerings at the concessions Stand. For the sake of time we are asking you to plan your menu selections in your car.

Six-foot social distancing must be followed at the RESTROOMS as well. Only 1 patron will be allowed in our men’s restroom at a time unless accompanying a child. In our women’s restroom only 2 patrons can be allowed at a time. Please do not wait till intermission to use the restrooms. 

If you or any person in your household is not feeling well, please remain home for the safety of everyone.

We know this is an inconvenience, please bear with us & enjoy the show.
