The Rules

The health and safety of our audience and staff is our top priority. These events are held in accordance with Alberta Health Services health and safety protocol. Let’s not mess this up. This is the first in-person event CUFF has been approved to host since March. Not following the rules could put the festival at risk and jeopardize our chance to hold future screenings. If all goes well, we want to look at hosting more drive-ins and outdoor events this summer.

Read on for details, but in summary: Stay in your car, NO beer & concession, advance online sales only
We will not be selling tickets at the event. You must pre-purchase your ticket online starting June 15.


Stay in your car

Alberta Health Services rules state that you must stay in your vehicle for the entire duration of the event. No lawn chairs out front, no sitting on your roof, no passengers in the back of trucks. Please, stay inside. Lucky you, your windows can be rolled down.  


Vehicle size restrictions in place 

To ensure proper site-lines, please don’t rock up in a motor-home, RV or passenger van. If your vehicle is over-sized, such as a truck, you’ll be directed to park near the back of the lot. 


No Alcohol / No Beer!

While we are working with our sponsors at Big Rock to host the event, there is no beer or alcohol service during this event. No alcohol is permitted in your cars. Please don't drive while impaired.



In accordance with AHS guidelines a washroom will be available on site. Single use washrooms, please keep two metres apart.



The lot opens to vehicles at 9pm and the film will start at 10pm. If you arrive early you will be directed to wait in a holding lot. Our staff and volunteers will guide you to park your car in a set spot. When exiting there are two exits that you will be directed to use (not the way you came in). Please be patient as the cars need to exit single file.



Unless there are extreme winds, we are able to proceed with our drive-in screens, even if it rains. If the event is cancelled we will send an email to all ticketholders and reschedule it for another date. We know the weather can change in a minute. If you need to use your heat, windshield wipers or AC during the screening, please do not idle your vehicle.


Advance Concession Only

Now available for curbside pick up is our very own CUFF snack pack for drive-in nights. Check out our online store to place your order. Merch catching your eye? Add it to your snack pack and it will be available along with your snack pack at the drive-in.
