We are open Fri, Sat & Sun nights from Memorial Day – Labor Day. We are also open other nights for premieres and special events throughout the season.

In order to have the image show up on the screen we have to wait until after the sun goes down. So night only.

We normally open our entrance gate no less than 45 mins before the posted show times. We also open early for some special events or on holidays when large crowds are anticipated.

The movies start once it is dark enough to see them on the screen clearly. Start times adjust accordingly to when the sun sets.

There are 165+ parking spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis. There are poles marking spots. We ask that you park next to one to ensure proper spacing for moving around. Sorry, you may not “hold” a spot for a friend.

No. An exit to the main entrance will be opened for you to leave by. You do not need to drive back past the ticket booth to leave.

We all know how quickly the weather can change here in Western Nebraska. It can go from bad to good or good to bad within an hour. That said, we have no intention of endangering our patrons. If the weather looks to be too bad, or the lot is too wet or wind damaged we could cancel the show. You can always check Facebook or call 308-632-4311 for the latest updates.

If you are concerned that your car battery will run down or you do not know how to keep all your lights off, then please bring a battery-powered, portable FM radio. Apps on phones do not work unless it has a built-in FM antenna. There are also outdoor speakers around the projection booth area. It has a limited range though so if you want to use them we recommend parking close to the projection booth/concessions area.
