Outdoor Movie Policies
Reservations are made on a first-come first-serve basis and are tentative until "secured" with a non-refundable deposit and signed contract. Once the deposit is received, your services are guaranteed on your selected date.
You may tentatively reserve your dates without the deposit payment, but it is subject to cancellation if another customer selects the same date and submits the deposit payment. We will notify you immediately in that circumstance.
A 50% deposit is due at the time the contract is signed. The balance is due at the event prior to the movie being shown. Checks, money orders or cashier checks are acceptable forms of payment.
Your organization may shift event dates due to forecasted inclement weather only. We will accommodate you with its first available open date. No additional charges will be applied if the event date is shifted prior to our staff beginning travel to your venue. (Although we always bring smaller set ups with us so we can play the movie at an indoor back up location) We will do this one time. If the next scheduled date also gets cancelled due to weather the balance of the contract is due in full. If your event gets cancelled once we have left our facility payment in full is due.
If the weather looks threatening (imminent rain, rain, looming thunder clouds, dangerous winds capable of damaging equipment) We reserve the right to protect our own equipment by canceling setup/production. We also reserve the right to delay setup or pause the production until suitable weather conditions exist.
Ratings & Formats
Because we encourage wholesome family entertainment, film selections with ratings of G or PG are preferred. Movies with pg13 or R ratings should be discussed with your party planner prior to licensing the movie. Our office should be notified 14 days prior to the event of the title selected. The selected film must be available on DVD preferred in widescreen format. Some filmmakers, such as Disney, have limited dates as to when their films can be screened in an outdoor setting.
All non-theatrical screenings legally require a license obtained by your community or organization. Licensing fees will vary due to movie titles, audience size and the nature of the event. It is advisable to contact one of these licensing agencies as soon as your event date is confirmed. The film licensing company may provide a copy of the movie to use at the event.
