HOW TO:

Make sure when you purchase your ticket(s), you do the following:

1)PURCHASE A TWO FEATURE MAIN TICKET ($37) which includes a $25 car fee and the driver’s ticket. This gets you into BOTH features.

OR PURCHASE A SINGLE EARLY BIRD ($23) or DAY OF TICKET ($28) which includes the car fee and the first ticket for the driver. This gets you into the single FEATURE you select by title.

2) GO TO ADD ONS: Purchase either an additional $12 per person ticket (for BOTH Features) or an additional $8 per person ticket (for a SINGLE FEATURE) for however many other people after the first person will be in the car. You can always bring more people and pay at the gate as long as you have purchased the TWO FEATURE, EARLY BIRD, or DAY OF TICKET.

3)PRE-ORDER ANY CONCESSIONS OR MOVIE MERCHANDISE you would like from the additional Add-Ons. You can pick up all concessions & merchandise at our table in the middle of the Parking Lot.

To attend, you need a car with an FM radio or a handheld radio you bring yourself. We will space out cars to make sure folks can safely maintain 6 feet of distance. We ask that folks stay in their cars unless they are picking up concessions or using the restroom. Whenever you are out of your car, you are required to wear a mask for everyone’s safety.

IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, PLEASE BRING A SMALL OR REGULAR SIZED CAR (sedan sized or smaller). We want to make sure EVERYONE gets a great space. SUVS, TRUCKS, CARS WITH HIGH ROOFS/RACKS/ITEMS ON ROOF often have to be parked further away from the screen to avoid sightline issues.

If you bring a larger car, arrive as near to when we open our gates as possible to get the best possible space.

We are proud to continue our partnership with ELECTRIC DUSK DRIVE IN (https://www.electricduskdrivein.com) into April 2021!

We continue our two Saturdays at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica with our THE CLASSIC & THE CONTEMPORARY COCKTAIL series where we pair one Hollywood classic with the contemporary classic it inspired.

Tonight we start with this programmer’s all-time favorite Alfred Hitchcock movie Rear Window starring Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly, Thelma Ritter, and Raymond Burr.

All the cylinders were firing for Hitchcock on this one as he tells the story of adventure seeking photographer LB Jeffries, laid up in his apartment with a broken leg, who suddenly begins to suspect his apartment neighbor across the courtyard has killed his wife.

Aided by his debutante girlfriend, the matchless Grace Kelly, and his nurse, the hilarious Thelma Ritter, both of whom prove even more ruthless, clever, and investigative than Jeffries himself, the trio set out to solve the mystery.

Filmed entirely on a huge set, this is Hitchcock at his tension and suspense inducing best.

We follow it up with possibly the greatest movie Rear Window ever inspired, David Lynch’s peerless Blue Velvet. Here, innocent young Jeffrey Beaumont (the great Kyle Machlachlan) discovers a severed ear in a field and is plunged into a local town mystery. Soon he descends into a strange subterranean world of sado-masochistic torch singers, ultra-violent erratic criminals that paradoxically is paired with a spiritual awakening. Blue Velvet boasts one of Dennis Hopper’s best (if not THE BEST) performances as the horrifying Frank Booth who seems to hold the key to too many people’s salvation or damnation.

So join us for two of the best movies by two of the greatest masters of all cinema.

Best always,

Craig Hammill

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR OUR PARKING LOT CINEMA SERIES

REFUNDS:

We can offer refunds up to 24 hours before showtime. Please request a refund through Eventbrite and we will process ASAP. After that, no refunds. Sorry.

HELPFUL PARKING LOT CINEMA TIPS:

Please make sure you know how to hit off your car headlights before attending. For newer cars, the process is usually:

1. Activate the Parking Break.

2. Make sure the lights are switched to off.

3. Then turn the car on. The lights will stay off unless they are manually turned on. Repeat the process to turn them off again. 

Bring warm clothes, blankets, a few layers just in case it gets chilly and you don’t want to run your car the entire movie (although you totally can if you want).

Make sure you know how to work your CAR RADIO so you can TUNE to any frequency you want.

The earlier you arrive, the better space/closer to the screen you will get! Once you get parked, you can totally leave the lot, go to get food, come back.

HOW CAN I CONTACT YOU IF I HAVE OTHER QUESTIONS/RECOMMENDATIONS:

You can always email us at community@secretmovieclub.com or sales@electricduskdrivein.com with any other questions, concerns, thoughts, recommendations.
