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 sight lines for everyone.
  • Larger vehicles and trucks or SUV’s that will be backing in must use the rear rows. 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Beer will be served on the Haliburton Highlands Brewing patio as well as in the designated side patio, where you can set up lawn chairs in front of the screen. This area is first come first serve.
