What is the Greenwood Collective Drive-In?

Presented as a partnership and 10th anniversary film festival launch event with Black Star, The Drive-In presents new and classic films as a way to bring culture and jobs back to Black & Brown businesses hardest hit by COVID-19.

How many people are allowed in a car? 

All tickets are Standard entries for 1 car with up to 5 passengers per car and you will be asked to confirm the number of passengers during checkout. For optimized viewing we recommend 2 passengers per car as visibility may not be ideal in the back seats of smaller cars.

How will it work?

Bring your ticket (either printed or on your phone) and our team will check your tickets with a contactless check in scanner, respecting social distancing guidelines. We will direct you to your parking spot, and wait for the sun to set. Our audio is quality FM stereo sound that is tuned directly through your car’s FM stereo.

Will the drive-in take place during bad weather? 

Events will continue under most weather conditions. The Drive-In will utilize large outdoor screens, and in the event of sustained heavy wind or an imminent heavy storm, we may need to delay a screening until weather conditions pass, or in a worst case scenario, reschedule an event.

In the event of a rescheduling, we will issue a credit to the rescheduled screening and/or a different screening later in the season. If there is a delay during the screening, please keep your radio tuned to the Drive-In radio station and await notification.

What COVID-19 Measures Have Been Taken?

Our guests and our team’s safety is our primary concern at the Drive-In. You will find an overview of the COVID-19 measures we will implement in our COVID Safety statement. These include social distancing for both guests and staff, regular cleaning of all facilities, and contact-free check-in. All attendees and staff are required to wear a mask whenever they are not in their vehicle, but masks are not required while attendees are in their vehicles. You will also be reminded of the mandatory safety measures via email and on-screen. With the exception of trips to the bathroom, we ask you to stay inside your car and keep the windows on the passenger side of the vehicle closed. If you drive a convertible, please close the roof before you enter the Drive-In site and keep it closed until after you have left.
