DO I HAVE TO PURCHASE PASSES ONLINE?
You don’t HAVE to do anything. We encourage you to purchase passes in advance, as you’ll be the first in the door beginning at 5:30pm. Any individual passes not sold in advance will be available at the door. Group package discounts (10+) are only available in advance by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
HOW MUCH ARE CHILDREN’S PASSES?
Children 12 and under are $8. Kids under 5 are free. Most of the films we’re showing are for adults/mature audiences. We suggest that you consult the movie ratings and the content of each film before bringing children to the event.
CAN WE RESERVE “SEATS?”
YES! Well, sort of. Don’t stress about getting the perfect spot at each event. This is LA after all. We know traffic and life make us Fashionably Late, so we’ve got passes just for you – guaranteed one of the best spots in each venue. For just $20 per pass, there will be a designated area just for Fashionably Late Passes, so you can arrive at 8 instead of 5:30. You won’t have a specific “spot” within this area but you’ll have plenty of room. Fashionably Late Passes will be sold online only, in a very limited quantity. Depending on the size of the venue, that will determine the number of passes made available.
ARE THERE SEATS/WHAT DO WE SIT ON?
That was a loaded question, right? All of our events are in parks or on athletic fields, with the exception of The Memorial Greek Theater at Santa Monica High School and Pasadena City Hall, so a picnic blanket or low beach chair (no more than 6″ off the ground) would be your best bet. If you bring a lawn/camping chair, you will be obstructing the view of other moviegoers and required to please sit off to the sides in a designated chair area.
We suggest that you bring lawn chairs to Pasadena City Hall as there will be street closures with the seating area at Centennial Square in front of Pasadena City Hall.
ARE THERE EXCHANGES OR REFUNDS?
Yes and no. If you need to exchange your pass for another night, we will do our best to accommodate you, as long as we are not sold out for the night you would like to exchange for. If you purchased your passes and changed your mind or forgot, we cannot offer a refund post-event, but as previously stated we will do our best to exchange your pass(es) for another night, in advance. Please contact email@example.com
WHAT TIME DO DOORS OPEN?
Doors open at 5:30pm.
WHAT TIME DOES THE BAND START?

WHAT FOOD TRUCKS WILL BE THERE?
The benefit of being in the city that revolutionized the Food Truck movement is that we have SO MANY amazing trucks to choose from! We will have different trucks every week and we encourage you to follow your favorites on Twitter to see if they’re going to be at the next Eat|See|Hear event.
Your best bet is to sign up for our weekly e-newsletter, follow us on Twitter @EatSeeHear and become a fan of our Facebook page. We’ll announce the line up through all of these channels, along with any last minute changes prior to the event.
WHEN WILL FOOD TRUCKS ARRIVE?
Food trucks will be on site ready to serve you when doors open at 5:30pm. Food trucks will be available throughout the evening, or until they run out of food, whichever comes first. Doors close at 10:30 or 11pm, depending on venue/movie.
CAN WE BRING IN OUTSIDE SNACKS AND DRINKS?
The first word in our name is EAT and we think you’ll enjoy sampling the variety of options all of the Food Trucks we’re inviting out to each event have to offer. If you do bring your own picnic, please do not bring coolers over 12″x12″ to any location. There will always be vegetarian options from one or more trucks seeing as a few of us of are vegetarian/vegan.
CAN I BRING BEER OR ALCOHOL?
It is our responsibility to let you know that alcohol is prohibited in all City and State Parks, as well as at any school. Our RA said the same thing in college.

ARE PETS ALLOWED?
Friendly, leashed pets are allowed every Eat|See|Hear location. If you do bring your pet, please make sure you have enough poop bags, treats and water for your furry friend. We’ll always have free biscuits at the front entrance for doggies, too!
IS THERE FREE PARKING?
In LA?! Free parking?!?! YES! Many locations offer free parking on site or a combination of a parking lot and nearby on-street parking. Some locations have nearby fee parking lots or on-street parking. If you do park on the street, be sure to read all parking signs and please be quiet when exiting so as not to disturb our neighbors. We want to be invited back next year.

WHAT TIME CAN I ARRIVE?
Doors open at 5:30pm for both car parking and open, GA seating area.

$15.00 PER PERSON, with a MINIMUM of TWO PEOPLE PER CAR ($30 minimum per car). We ask that everybody arrive at the same time inside the car. If you are coming in your car by yourself, the cost will be $30.
DO CARS, PICKUP’S AND SUV’S PAY THE SAME PRICE?
The price is the same for any car because you are paying per person, not per car. Please make sure that you only take up one space and respect the parking rules of the drive-in.
HOW WILL WE HEAR THE MOVIE?
We will transmit the movie over an FM station that will be provided to you at the entrance. Just turn on your car radio and enjoy! (Please turn on your car once every 30-40 min to allow the battery to recharge). We will also have external speakers broadcasting the audio from the movie for those sitting in the Open General Admission seating area.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
It doesn’t rain in Los Angeles. We’ll do our best to reschedule the date.
CAN WE BRING OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINKS TO THE DRIVE-IN?
Yes you may. Same rules apply here as with our regular Eat|See|Hear events, as noted above. We ask that you patronize the various food trucks that we’ve invited to the event, but you are also welcome to bring your own picnic if you so choose.
WHAT CAN I BRING TO THE DRIVE-IN
We encourage you to bring lawn chairs (if you are driving in), low chairs no more than 6″ off the ground (if you are doing open GA seating), blankets, pillows/cushions, or sleeping bags to enjoy the movies outdoors.
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE:
* There is no smoking on the LATTC campus.
* Avoid letting your headlights shine on the screen or on others. Use your parking lights. Please disengage daytime running lights.
* While on the premises, please drive slowly and carefully and follow the direction of on site staff.
* You will want to turn your car on and then off about every 30 minutes during the movie so that your battery doesn’t die and require you to get a jump-start.
* Please stay within the Drive-In area, we are using the location under a special permit and any behavior problems will force us to leave. Please help us bring this awesome Drive-In experience to you by respecting the premises and everyone around you.
GIVE A HOOT, DON’T POLLUTE
Whatever you carry in, please carry it out with you. Or at the very least to the nearest trash can. Please help us keep our parks and green spaces CLEAN. We’re not your housekeeper and would appreciate your helping us keep our local venues happy so that we can return to your community next year. If someone near you was careless, please be the better human and toss out the trash that was “inadvertently” left behind. (We’ll give them the benefit of the doubt, but really we all know karma’s a bitch.)
