Welcome to the Westfield’s Center Drive-In.

Due to social distancing protocols, our Drive-In policies have changed. By attending the event, you agree to follow these critical policies for the safety of the event staff, the market staff, and your fellow movie-goers.

The Westfields Business Owners Association (WBOA), Property Owner, Event Staff or the police has the right to remove anyone from the event who does not follow these policies.


  • By attending the Westfield’s Drive-In you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

  • No refunds or exchanges. If you cannot use your reservation, we recommend giving it to a friend to use.

  • No walk-up or bike-in guests. All attendees must arrive in an enclosed motor vehicle, and must remain inside the vehicle at all times, except to use the restrooms in accordance with the procedure set forth below.

  • You must remove any trash you bring in or create during the film. There are no public waste receptacles available.

  • In case of an emergency, you will be directed to an appropriate exit by parking lot staff. Please stay inside your vehicles.

  • At check-in, you will receive a flier with information about the Drive-In, including restroom procedures, and other important information.

  • All films are broadcast to your car’s FM radio. Please be aware of how to put your car in Accessory mode, as engine idling is prohibited. If your car is not equipped with a radio, we recommended bringing one. The FM signal cannot be tuned into using a smartphone. There are no loudspeakers.

  • All films are also shown with Open Captions.


  • Due to our parking lot arrangement, no vehicle may back into a space. ALL VEHICLES FACE FORWARD.

  • Large or tall vehicles will be guided to park on the sides, or back of the lot.

  • We cannot park friends or family together unless all check in at the same time. We do not reserve spots.

  • The decision to direct your car to a specific space is at the discretion of the lot staff.  Failure to follow these instructions may result in your removal from the event.  

  • Once parked, you may not drive away until instructed by event staff.

  • FOR SAFETY REASONS, NO CARS WILL BE ADMITTED AFTER THE LOT IS CLOSED. Lot open/close times are posted on the ticketing website and in your confirmation email. We suggest arriving early for spaces closest to the screen.

  • ONCE PARKED, YOU MUST STAY IN YOUR CAR. All guests must stay inside the vehicle at all times. There is no picnicking on the grounds, nor on your car’s roof, hood, truck, or truck’s bed. The only reason to leave your vehicle is to use the restroom. Please follow procedures for each of these actions listed below.

  • NO ENGINE IDLING. Because we park cars closely together, your engine exhaust will affect the safety of others.  You may start your engine periodically to keep the battery fresh, but for no more than one minute.
