    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Accordion Content

    What? A complete event for $425? Yes – Moviematix has negotiated Nationwide pricing for rental equipment and has curated and created its own content for your benefit. Remember, we charge admission for all events, so no worries, we make our share!

    We don’t know! The child show has been curated by a master puppet performer who owns a childs puppet theater in NY. He has entertained children for years – and he is still in business. Your kids are sure to be entertained, but we don’t know what frightens them. If your kiddos can handle Sesame Streets “Count Dracula”, we think your kids will survive – However, you might not after sitting in the car with them for 1.5 hours!

    YES! We have created wonderful entertainment for your viewing pleasure. However, if you choose to watch standard classic films, we can license almost any film for your event through the major distributors. Mainstream movie licensing comes with an added expense of approximately $400 additional and the studios have strict rules and regulations. Our curated content is free & easy!

    We have access to various sized screens – so we can fit the drive-in theater almost anywhere. However, your lot should have parking for a minimum of 30+ cars for our program to work. If your lot is smaller, this model will not work, since our events require at least 15 cars in attendance.

    We provide everything including the marketing materials, ticketing program, movie equipment, film(s), and event technician during the event. You need to send pre-designed promotion emails to your client list, post flyers at your location, and provide the parking lot and electric during the event. If you desire, decorate and theme your parking lot!

    Hi! Great to meet you! Simply fill out the Vendor Location Request, and we will reply to with availability and get you on the calendar! You could host your first Drive-in next week!

    Seriously, if your parking lot can park 30+ cars without light poles or other obstacles in the way, you lot will most likely work. If you are still concerned, you can pay a small 1X site visit fee. This fee gets a technician to your location to review details and layout of your first drive-in movie night.

    Most likely YES! Moviematix has teamed up with various outdoor movie experts in most towns across America. Visit Here(link). When you provide your information and zip code – we’ll tell you if we can service your parking lot(s).

    The short answer is YES. However, our service does have limited availability – some popular nights may be booked in your area. Most parking lots can secure a 3+ night movie series for their customers. You could make this a weekly or monthly event throughout the Spring, Summer or Fall. The Dreaded Drive-In is only available for October events – so don’t delay, reserve dates today!

    First come first served! So call us before your competition does!! This offer is available to every parking lot in your area. However, we prefer to limit the service to a 15-mile radius to avoid un-booked events. We want your business to generate traffic flow from these events. Realize, if an event is already confirmed within a 15-mile radius of your location, we reserve the right to deny your request for our service.
