FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF (1986) Rated PG-13 --8:30pm--

--Earlier Start Time: 8:30PM!--


(1986) Rated 'PG-13' 103minutes

Ferris Bueller is a smart kid, and on this particular schoolday, he uses those smarts to go on a class-ditching odyssey. Along the way he'll outwit his peers, his sister, his parents and Mr. Rooney — One especially zealous principal who has vowed to nab the truant 'righteous dude' and finally kick him out of school! Throw in a priceless Ferrari & Charlie Sheen and you have the makings of a classic 80's John Hughes comedy. 

NO GRASS! BRING LAWN CHAIRS! START TIMES VARY THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER SO PLEASE TAKE NOTE EACH SHOW! 'R' and 'PG' rated films may contain content unsuitable for young children.

Start time begins a 20 minute pre-show and trailers. There is a 15min. Intermission halfway through the show. Concessions are available during pre-show and intermission only! Please arrive prior to start time to get a good parking spot. No cars after 9pm, please.

This is YEAR SEVEN of the North Bay Drive In!! You can expect great treats and drinks at the Concession Stand and as always, we ask for whatever donations you can spare to help us keep the Drive-In Dream alive. :)

...Do you love us? Donate and help us keep the movies coming!


EVENT INFO -- take time to read if this is your first time attending!

We're a mobile DRIVE-IN, keeping the authentic experience alive as best we can! We project a big 30 foot wide image on the side of the Old Hamilton Theater building (closed for many years now) and transmit the audio over the FM band (88.3FM) just like modern drive-ins. We operate totally via donations and even have a small concession snack bar at each performance, in addition to raffle prizes and special presentations during the intro and intermission segments!! COME JOIN US and KEEP THE DRIVE-IN ALIVE!

Drive-In Tips:
Arrive Early if you plan to park and watch from your car! There's lots of space for chairs and blankets in front, and we encourage everyone to try it if you haven't, yet. Pre-show runs 15-20 minutes (the movie does not start exactly at the time listed above, but please don't arrive late, you won't get a parking spot in the main lot). There will be a 20 minute intermission and raffle.  NOTE: THERE ARE NO REGULAR RESTROOMS AT THIS LOCATION - there's a park on Hamilton Pkwy down the road and around the corner that has open facilities through twilight and sometimes the church across the street has an event and we can use theirs (located in the courtyard) but otherwise we have to improvise!

Drive-In Etiquette:
CAR HEADLIGHTS AND PARKING LIGHTS OFF during the show. LARGER VEHICLES PARK IN THE BACK ROW (Minivans, SUVs, Crossovers, Pickups). We can't always be 100% on top of this so if you have a smaller car do try to come early to get a FRONT row spot! During the movie, please keep talking to a minimum. We also ask folks to refrain from smoking close to other cars or attendees. We encourage everyone to enjoy the summer evening and sit outside - we have some boom boxes for audio! ALL CARS MUST KEEP IT SLOW when driving in the parking area. Children are welcome, but we ask you supervise them at all times. Same with pets, welcome but dogs need to be leashed at all times. Access to parking lot closes after the movie starts, at which point we ask folks park in the adjacent lot and walk in with lawn chair/blanket so as not to disturb those watching the movie. Please do not drive in to the lot after the movie has started.

Snack Bar & Raffles:
DONATE for SNACKS at our Concession Stand equipped with popcorn, hot dogs, candy and refreshments! There's usually themed cupcakes and/or other treats plus A RAFFLE with awesome prizes!! Raffles are held during intermission and usually feature a movie-themed prize-pack!... Small bills greatly appreciated!


ADVERTISING is available during our pre-show. The drive-in prides itself on being a community-based event. Promote your local business or service with us and reach Marin customers. Please email Bill at [masked] for details. It's an inexpensive and effective way to promote your business to an enthusiastic audience of anywhere from 50 to 100+ per event!!

DONATIONS are what makes this happen! You can donate at the show or via this helpful PAYPAL link with your major credit card:

    Hello Drivers-In, looks like we have a HOT day today, so lawn chairs and blankets are a great idea... IF you do sit outside, please park your car in the big adjacent lot so there are more spots for those watching from their cars. We plan to have a LARGE CROWD tonight!

    See you in a few hours!

    We are looking forward to tomorrow night!!!! How early should we
    get there??? It looks like it will be a warm evening so we are planning on sitting outside. Do we park our cars and sit in front of the car????? We are newbies so any tips? Thanks!!!!!!

      Hi Susie and welcome! If you plan to sit outside when it's nice and warm like tomorrow should be, we ask folks park in the outer lot area (bigger parking area outside the old theater parking lot). There should be plenty of space for lawn chairs in front of the forward row of cars, and they usually have a slightly higher view so don't worry about blocking anyone. See you tomorrow night at 8:30!
