PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR ALL INFO ON THE FOLLOWING EVENTS:

* TRUNK-or-TREAT

4th ANNUAL TRUNK-or-TREAT * Oct 20,21

 

 

Reminder to personal message us if you are decorating, or would just like to hand out candy, so we know how many spots to reserve.

 

NEW THIS YEAR: We have some that would love to hand out candy, but do not feel they have time to decorate. You can tie an orange helium balloon to your car so the kids know to stop by for candy. (Similar to turning your light on at Halloween.) We would still like for you to contact us and let us know so we can get you in the first 2 rows.

 

MOVIES PLAYING:

Hotel Transylvania 7:00

Monster House 8:30

 

Do not hesitate to message us with any questions you have about this event.

*1* PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST The kids are asked to bring in a carved pumpkin for display in front of concessions. The Jackolanterns will be lit up and numbered so everyone in attendance can enjoy their Halloween creations and VOTE for their favorite! (All pumpkins will go home with the kids after the show.) Prizes will be handed out at intermission. https://www.facebook.com/longprairie/photos/gm.1110540792386841/1120063898069553/?type=3&theater

 

*2* Please message us & pre-register if you plan on decorating a vehicle, OR would just like to hand out candy. (We will reserve a spot for you in front 2 rows.) We want to make sure we have space up front reserved for everyone wanting to participate**

 

*3* We always have some interested in joining us BOTH nights. If you join us on Friday, you may come out and enjoy Saturday for FREE

 

*4* We are asking that EVERYONE attending please BRING a bag of sealed CANDY to contribute & share. Predicting attendance numbers, and amount of candy, is difficult for those putting together displays or handing out candy. If everyone brings a small amount that takes out the guess work on attendance so things run smoothly. **There will be a collection bowl inside concessions**

 

WE INVITE YOU TO GET CREATIVE, DRESS UP, HAVE FUN, AND JOIN US FOR OUR 4TH ANNUAL TRUNK-or-TREAT!

 

PRIZES awarded for the best audience displays which will include a GRAND PRIZE WINNER of a 2018 season pass to The Long Drive-In! To be eligible for prizes, your car display must be set up and registered in the concessions by 6:00.

 

Audience participation in TRUNK or TREAT is OPTIONAL, but A WHOLE LOT OF FUN. First 2 rows will be reserved for TRUNK-or-TREAT vehicles and those handing out candy.

 

We are hopeful that those that come to have their kids join the Trunk or Treat will also join in the decorating to make this a fun and memorable event for all. This event is always a blast for both the kids that dressed up to TRUNK-or-TREAT and the parents who always do such an absolutely AMAZING job decorating their vehicles. **Also for the Drive-In staff who enjoys watching all the witches, ghosts, & goblins coming through the lobby doors all night!

2017 ANNUAL CLASSIC CAR CRUISE!

 

 

JOIN US FOR A GREAT NIGHT OF MOVIES, MUSIC, FOOD … AND CLASSIC CARS!

 

The insurance process is going much slower than we would like it to. Yesterday, we found out our paperwork is being forwarded to a second office and that sets things back yet another week.

 

Sadly, this takes our Classic Car Cruise off the table for August 26th. We are going to try and reschedule it if everything falls in place and we can get open early enough. Please stay tuned for updates on that.

 

We were considering going ahead with the car show without a movie. For insurance liability reasons, we cannot. The entire screen face is unstable and needs to be removed before we can do anything out at The Drive-In.

 

PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES.

 

*ALL ARE WELCOME. You do not need to have a classic car to attend. **The first 3 rows will be reserved for classic cars only.** (Row 3 will be opened up before the movie if their is room left.)
