Little Pit Rules

Before the evening’s screening, for the safety and well being of everyone, here are the LITTLE PIT RULES that we need you to be aware of.

  • No ‘creative’ parking. Please observe the designated parking spots. They have been set up to maintain appropriate distancing and allow optimum sightlines for everyone.
  • Larger vehicles and trucks or SUV’s that will be backing in must use the rear rows. Warning… at sunset, be prepared for flies + mosquitoes when outside your vehicle (bug spray and/or Thermacell Repeller strongly recommended).
  • If your windows are down or the hatch is open, please do not worry about having your stereo up loud—but do refrain from personal conversation.
  • Please keep your interior vehicle lights off whenever possible.
  • During the movies please remain in your vehicle except to use the washrooms or in the case of an emergency.
  • There are two indoor and two outdoor washrooms available please stand 2 metres or 6 feet apart, if waiting in line.
  • When using the washrooms please wash or sanitize your hands before entering and again before exiting the washroom.
  • Please stand 2 metres or 6 feet apart, if waiting in line for snacks or beverages.
  • Pizza, snacks and beer can be ordered from your car by text or email using your car/parking spot number. Please note, beer cannot be consumed in your vehicle. Beer will be consumed on the brewery patio. See reverse for menu options and contact info.
  • Pizza and beer will not be available during our 10-minute intermission.
