Only 45 car tickets are available each evening. All proceeds benefit the Backcountry Conservation and Education Fund.

General Admission: $25 per car (max 45 vehicles per evening). Bring your own dinner!
Adult-Only (21+) Movies: $20 per person (includes movie ticket and 2 Living the Dream Brewing Co. beers). Bring your own dinner!
