The Nantucket community has provided incredible support to build the drive-in at 7 Nobadeer Farm Road. This project would not have been possible without their hard work and generous donations. Through a Go Fund Me campaign in the spring of 2020, the drive-in received over $180,000 from more than 500 contributors. This money was used to purchase necessary equipment and to construct the needed facilities – including a projector, which gives The Dreamland a lot of variety in their movie selection.
In 2020, the drive-in operated with a 39-car capacity, and in 2021 has been approved for up to 60 vehicles. Although the experience will be reminiscent of the past, the movies will combine new releases and old favorites.
Payment is per vehicle, not per person – tickets must be bought online before the show, not at the gate. So, to ensure you get your spot, it pays to plan – tickets are expected to sell out quickly! In case of bad weather, screenings will be canceled, and ticket refunds issued.
Arrive early for a prime parking spot – all vehicles are arranged in a triangular pattern, giving everyone a great view of the screen. The parking opens at 8:00 p.m., and gates close at 8:30 p.m. The movie will start close to 8:30 in the evening. Remember to bring your e-ticket with a QR code, either printed or available on your phone.
When parking, keep your speed to 5mph and follow the instructions of Dreamland staff to get your spot – then, turn off your engine and stay in one place. No access to the playing fields or lawn seating – if you’re using chairs, keep them in the back of your vehicle so you don’t take up extra space.
To have a sound, tune in to station 93.9 and get ready to enjoy the film with sound broadcast directly to your car radio. Before the movie starts, make sure your car ignition is off. Dreamland offers limited concessions, but you can bring your own snacks, takeout from your favorite spot, and non-alcoholic drinks. Note that alcohol is not permitted.
Dreamland is a family-friendly event, be mindful of your language. No smoking, pets, open flames, or illegal drugs are allowed. When walking on the grounds in the dark, being aware of your surroundings is essential. Uneven surfaces can be difficult to spot in the dark. Do not honk your horn or turn on your car lights unnecessarily. After the movie, don’t forget to take everything you brought with you when you leave. Dreamland’s team is available should you need any help throughout the movie. If you’d like to learn more, check their website.
