Think drive-in for sophisticated picnickers and you’ll begin to get the idea. Veterans know the drill: Secure your gourmet deli food and top shelf wine early in the day. Arrive by 4:30PM and join the 5:00PM land-rush for spots on the grass in front of the 20 feet high by 48 feet wide screen. Begin socializing and dining and, alas, expect the conversation to continue through the glory that is 35MM film. Drinking of all stripes—whether it's beer or wine from 'wichcraft or something you've brought with you—will be allowed at the festival this year! For the protection of all attendees of the Film Festival, there are changes to how movie-goers access the Lawn Area (the Lawn and surrounding gravel area). The gravel area surrounding the Lawn opens at 4:00pm. The Lawn opens at 5:00pm.* * Entry to the Lawn Area is only permitted at the 6th Avenue side of the park (near the screen). * Wheelchair access to the Lawn Area is accessible through the ramps at the eastern end of the Lawn.
