We recommend a maximum of 4 people in a car, for comfort and convenience.

Will I be allowed out of my car?

Yes - we have a range of onsite attractions to enjoy before the showing.

When the movie starts, we will need people in their cars, as this is where the audio streams.

How will I hear the movie?

The audio will be transmitted through your car radio. i.e. you will need to have a functioning working car radio to pick up the audio. If your car does not have a working radio then we recommend bringing a support transistor radio. You will be given the frequency upon arrival.

Can I leave my car on during the movie?

We require engines to be turned off during the movie. The lights can be distracting, and the fumes can be a hazard.

What happens if I get a flat car battery?

We have a battery booster on site to support any empty car batteries. Our staff will be willing to support you on site, with your permission. Please note we are not qualified mechanics, just helpful folk, so anyone requiring our assistance understands this on this basis.

Are there any age restrictions

The movies have an age license, which will dictate age restrictions on site.

Policy for under 5s

Under enter the site for free. The location of the event is situated on a clifftop, so ensure that all children are well supervised. No children should be left in cars unattended.

What happens if the event is cancelled?

If the event is cancelled for any reason we will try and reschedule in the first instance, and if this alternative date is not possible we will refund the ticket value.

Temporary pauses

While movies are expected to run come rain or shine pauses may occur in the event of lighting, weather or technical difficulties. These temporary pauses do not qualify as a cancelled event. In the event of a temporary pause instructions will be broadcast to all guests via movie screens and/or audio sources. We will always have the safety of our guests in mind, and when conditions allow (or the difficulties have been overcome) we will continue. 


Will bad weather affect the event?

The event will be rescheduled in the event of high winds, or heavy rain. We will notify our ticket holder as soon as we have confirmed information on the evening.

If the event is cancelled, when will you let us know?

We’ll communicate with you as early as we have a definitive plan.

For the avoidance of doubt, if you do not hear from us the event is on!

What happens if I want to cancel?

The tickets are non-refundable i.e. if you are unable to attend or feel disinclined to attend for any reason the ticket will be non refundable. You may transfer the ticket to a friend.

If I cannot make it can I give my ticket to a friend?

If you are unable to attend or feel disinclined to attend for any reason you may transfer the ticket to a friend. In order to process this transfer simply forward your ticket to a friend, and tell them to present it upon arrival. We will then scan in your ticket, on their behalf when shown. Each ticket can only be used once.

Can I swap my ticket to another night, or another showing?

The date of the ticket is non-transferable. Make sure you book for the right evening. If you book, and are then unable to attend for whatever reason we would encourage you to find a replacement privately.

We are not able to swap tickets for different movies. As above, ensure you book the right night!

Am I allowed to camp on site?

Strictly no overnight stays will be allowed. Under no circumstances.

What happens if I drink too much, and need to drive?

It is vitally important that each car has a designated driver. This person must take their role and responsibility seriously. Under no circumstances should any individual drive under the influence of alcohol. We strongly recommend a no drinking policy for all drivers.

Yes - we have a range of portable toilets on site, which we clean regularly.

Are there social distancing measures in place?

Yes, in accordance with the government guidelines. The site is very open, and in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Am I allowed to bring my own food and drink on site?

The event takes place in a licensed field and as such it is not permitted to bring your own alcohol. A great selection of drinks will be available from our bar. 

Any ticket holders bringing food on site, should also be responsible for their own refuse.

Any drinks will be served in recyclable containers, and under no circumstances must any glass be left on site.

Are there accessible facilities?

Accessible lavatories: There will be accessible lavatories on site

Accessible parking: due to the drive in nature of the event there is no requirement for a dedicated accessible parking zone. If you would prefer to be nearer the food and beverage area, or the lavatories please ask our team upon arrival.

N.b. Due to the mobile nature of the event, it will not be possible for us to lay a hard track on site. The location is in a field, which will have firm grounding, and short grass.

Am I allowed to have a bbq on site?

Only pre-prepared food will be allowed on site, barbeques or fires will not be allowed under any circumstances.

Are dogs allowed on site?

We love our dogs, but sadly this is a livestock field so no dogs are allowed. The livestock won’t be in there when the movie’s showing, but domestic animals can contaminate the field, with a potential long term negative affect to the livestock. So, no dogs on site. 

However, if you cannot find a doggy sitter for your pooch, we appreciate this might cause you a problem and might make your visit a challenge. Under these circumstances we appreciate that some people have little option but to bring their dog, and in this instance any dog must be kept on a lead on all times in the field, and strictly all dog mess must be collected.

What types of cars are allowed?

Yes to: Motorbikes, 3 Wheelers, Cars, 4x4s, Vans, Campervans

No to: HGVs and beyond

N.b. if you have a big car you might be asked to park nearer the back so as not to obstruct anyone’s view.
