HOW TO: While we all work to be socially responsible during the age of coronavirus, Electric Dusk Drive In & Secret Movie Club are partnering to put on a Pop-up Drive-In Cinema series. Each week, we will be screening movies on a great inflatable screen in a great parking lot location in Los Angeles.

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

1)PURCHASE EITHER THE DOUBLE FEATURE MAIN TICKET ($37) which includes a $25 car fee and the first ticket at $12 per person. This gets you into BOTH Features.

OR PURCHASE A SINGLE FEATURE EARLY BIRD TICKET ($23) which includes a $15 car fee and the first ticket at $8 per person. 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. We will be doing a count at the gate.

PLEASE NOTE TICKETS THE DAY OF AND AT THE GATE WILL BE $20 per car + $8 per ticket for a single screening.

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

To attend, you need a car with an FM radio. We will space out cars to make sure folks can always maintain 6 feet of distance. We ask that folks stay in their cars unless they need to use the portable restroom. Whenever you are out of your car, you are required to wear a mask.

We will have hand sanitizer, masks, and gloves for sale for folks who need them. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU BRING ALL THESE THINGS ON YOUR OWN.

Our partnership with Electric Dusk Drive In https://www.electricduskdrivein.com/) continues as we wrap up our MUSICAL MADNESS series with two all-time rock movie musicals. The Who’s TOMMY and Pink Floyd’s THE WALL.

TOMMY, directed by wild man director Ken Russell, is a hallucinatory roller coaster ride filled with an all-star cast singing the classic WHO album about a blind and deaf boy who becomes a genius at pinball and later a savior. And while almost everyone adds something special and unique to their musical number, Tina Turner nearly steals the entire show with her now classic “Acid Queen” sequence where she gives about 250%. The Who’s guitarist and songwriter, Pete Townsend, really pioneered the rock musical with Tommy. And no one has completely caught up to him since.

Our second feature of the night is Pink Floyd’s classic THE WALL directed by Alan Parker with animated sequences directed by Gerald Scarfe. While you might think it impossible to get more visually intense and hallucinatory than Ken Russell, Parker and Scarfe do just that with their cinematic translation of Floyd’s classic album about alienation and disaffection. Animated and live action images take on fascism, conformity, numbness in the onslaught of late 20th century war, consumerism, and bad education.

If you’re looking for a rocking, mind blowing Thursday night. You may have just found it.

Best always,

Craig Hammill

35mm Secret Movie Club Founder.Programmer

You will need a car with FM radio to attend. Gate will open at 6:15pm for the first feature and 10p for the second feature so folks have plenty of time to find the lot, get a good space.

IMPORTANT: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU DOUBLE CHECK THE TICKET YOU ARE PURCHASING IF YOU ARE ONLY ATTENDING ONE FEATURE. If you are just attending the first feature, arrive around 6:00p-7p to get the best possible space.

If you are only attending the second feature, please arrive no earlier than 9:30pm so we can get everyone attending the first feature out of the lot, so we can get you in and start the movie!

We will be pre-selling concessions and posters here on Eventbrite to start so everything is as easy as possible. You can pick up your concessions and posters at our concessions table in the parking lot once you’ve parked. We have everything factory sealed, chilled, ready for pick up under your name.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE GONE TO THE "ADD ONS" section in EVENTBRITE to purchase your ADDITIONAL PERSON(S) IN CAR tickets. We will be doing a count when we check you in at the gate.

We can offer refunds for requests made MORE than 24 hours before showtime through Eventbrite. After that, no refunds. Sorry.

We highly recommend that you bring a sweater, jacket, or a few layers of clothes just in case it gets a little chilly and you don’t want to run your car.

We also have portable restrooms which are cleaned every 15 minutes throughout the movies.

TICKETS & REFUNDS: Because of the special nature of these screenings, we can not offer discounted series passes. We can offer refunds for requests made through Evenbrite more than 24 HOURS before screening time.

After that, no refunds. Sorry. But we can offer you complimentary tickets to a future Secret Movie Club screening as long as it hasn’t sold out and isn’t a special screening with a different pricing structure.

WHERE DO I PICK UP MY PRE-ORDERED CONCESSIONS AND/OR POSTERS?

We have a concessions/pick up table at the parking lot. All our concessions are factory sealed. We simply hand you your order. If you pre-order posters, we will also have them at this table for pick up. Concessions WILL be available for purchase at the event itself as well if you want to make a game time decision.

WHAT IF I HAD TICKET(S) TO A SECRET MOVIE CLUB SCREENING THAT GOT POSTPONED DUE TO COVID AND WANT TO USE IT HERE? We will be reserving 10 spaces per screening for folks who want to transfer their tickets to one of our Pop-up Drive-In Cinema events. We will still need to charge you for the car ($25) but we won’t charge for the tickets.

Please email us at: community@secretmovieclub.com as soon as you can if you want to attend so we can reserve you one of these spaces. Once these 10 spaces fill up, you will have to either pay full price or request a different event.

WHAT IF I HAVE A SECRET MOVIE CLUB LIFETIME, SPRING OR SUMMER 2020 SEASON, OR SERIES PASS? Lifetime Pass holders do get automatic admission to all our events so that includes our Pop-up Drive-In Cinemaa events. Please just email us at community@secretmovieclub.com to let us know you will be attending.

For Spring and Summer 2020 Season and Series Pass holders who had their events delayed due to our COVID postponements, we can’t transfer those passes to the Pop-up Drive-In Cinema series because of the special nature and different pricing structure of this series.

HOWEVER, if you write us at community@secretmovieclub.com, we will do our best to get you entrance into at least a few of these screenings as a thank you for your patience. We will have to charge the $25 car fee but we will waive the per person ticket fee. And your Season or Series pass will STILL BE GOOD once we return to theatrical screenings.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS AND MEASURES ARE YOU TAKING SO THESE EVENTS ARE SAFE DURING THE COVID PANDEMIC?

All our staff will have gloves, masks, and work to maintain 6 feet of distance.

We are working to make these events as touch-less as possible. Therefore we ask that you purchase your tickets and all concessions, movie posters, etc THROUGH Eventbrite prior to the event. That way we can just check you off our list, hand you your concessions/posters, and guide you to your parking space.

We will work to have masks, gloves, hand sanitizer for sale at our events.

BUT WE DO HIGHLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO BRING ALL THESE THINGS YOURSELVES.

We will have portable restrooms which are constantly cleaned between EACH USE.

HOW WILL THESE MOVIES BE SCREENED: For the time being all movies will be screened digitally. While our first love is 35mm, to make these events happen in parking lots, we do need to screen movies digitally. However, we have taken every step to make sure the image and sound are of the highest quality so you have a great cinematic experience. We will also be doing LIVE IN PERSON INTRODUCTIONS as we did for our theatrical screenings.

WILL THERE BE SINGLE FEATURES AND/OR FAMILY FEATURES? Yes! We will occasionally be screening single features of longer length and single family features. Pleasencheck our website (secretmovieclub.com), our Social Media (@secretmovieclub35mm @secretmovieclub), and our Eventbrite page: http://secretmovieclub.eventbrite.com each Monday at 1pm for newly announced events.

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

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