Ready To Attend...
In any given night 60% of the crowd are regulars and understand our policies.
40% are new to the experience. It is very difficult for these folks to arrive
and expect us to teach them everything they need to know about attending a
drive-in. Most of which is common sense.
To enable us to bring the crowd in quickly and efficiently here is what new
patron needs to know prior to arriving to the Bengies Drive-in Theatre:
1) HEADLIGHTS, DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHTS & "AUTOMATIC"
vehicle lights are trouble for us and our regular patrons. Bring
brown paper and tape to cover these lights OR check your owners manual to see if
you can gain complete control of them. Short of having the ability to keep the lights
out, plan on covering them. We will not sell a ticket with these white lights on. Once the lights are out or covered if they come back on anytime, for any reason, while you are in the theatre the only option left is for you to cover them.
2) No photographing, image capturing, or audio recording
anywhere on the premises, this includes the entrance road.
3) Cash only at the Box Office. Have your currency ready,
do not arrive at the box office and hold up the line by fishing your wallet out
of your pocket or purse. If you are on your cell phone while trying to purchase
a ticket you will be shown the exit. YES, YOUR ADMISSION INCLUDES ALL MOVIES
SHOWING THE NIGHT YOU ARRIVE, unless otherwise indicated.
4) Obey all signs on the roadway.
5) Vehicles with one person can be refused entry on busy
nights. If you are joining a party of friends consider parking outside of the
theatre and simply walking to the box office to purchase your ticket (see
the bottom of this page).
6) During busy times there are people directing traffic on
the roadway. Give them the utmost attention and courtesy. DO NOT ask this person
questions as they are trying to watch and guide traffic in four directions.
Distracting them is dangerous for all concerned.
- Driver's PLEASE turn off your cell phones, read the signs and obey the
- Just prior to turning right on to the entrance road please roll down
your window so you can hear the traffic director's instructions.
- Stay close to the vehicle in front of you, we are trying to keep
from cars from backing up on Eastern Ave. (MD Sate route 150)
- There will be no left turns from the west bound lane during these busy
times. If it occurs, it is too dangerous to back your vehicle out, so you
will sit in a rather long line only to be shown the exit.
- If you cut into the line from the left-hand lane you will also sit in a
long line to be shown the exit. No cheating. (Warning if you are turning
left out of Bengies RD. near the newly constructed Royal Farm store you too
will not be allowed to turn left and cut into the line.)
- While you are on Eastern Ave. do not swing around traffic to enter, stay
in the right lane on Eastern Ave. at all times.
- Do not change lanes on the entrance roadway unless directed to do so.
7) Once inside, PLEASE read the
"House Rules and Policies" that are in the flyer handed out to each
car at the Box Office BEFORE you leave your vehicle. (Or
you may read them here online by clicking on the Tab for House Rules, or
click here: http://www.bengies.com/HouseRules.php
These "House Rules and Policies" are important to the
smooth operation and are things our patrons need to know because all of them
are STRICTLY enforced. Most people realize that these are also a guide on
"how to attend the Bengies Drive-In Theatre."
8) Please check your vehicle's owner's manual, so you can play your vehicle's radio with out draining the battery.
Pole 1 (All White) is designated for cars only
Pole 2 (White & Yellow) is designated for any vehicle (with exceptions)
Pole 3 (White, Yellow, & Blue) is designated for larger vehicles, vans, Trucks, SUV's ect...
Please follow our field attendant's instructions on which pole to park next to when you arrive. Please park close enough to a pole to allow room for another vehicle to park next to you. If you have any trouble parking or have any questions please see our field attendants.
If you plan to sit outside of your vehicle please sit between your vehicle and the screen.
Reminder, if your actions impede our effort to quickly serve our good
patrons, we will exercise our right to refuse admission.
MEMORIAL THROUGH LABOR DAY WEEKEND, We will not allow one person in a vehicle to
occupy space on busy nights. TO BE CLEAR: The policy will apply to all
Friday & Saturdays until September, with an exception
to Friday IF
you arrive on the roadway within 15
minutes of the PUBLISHED box office opening time. It will NOT apply
to Sundays except for holiday Sundays, like
labor day weekend Sunday. If you are joining
others here at the Bengies, please "hook up" outside the theatre and use one
vehicle. We cannot turn away families because we ran out of space
due to folks thinking that the Bengies is a parking lot! You MAY
park at our good neighbor's lot that is the yellow or orange-ish brick
building next to the drive-in theater's entrance, (Austen's)
if you park correctly, and then you may
walk down the roadway to purchase a ticket and join your party.
IF YOU ARE A REGULAR CUSTOMER that normally comes alone, PLEASE
email us through the website at least 2 days prior
to your visit and tell us who you are, the year, make, color and model of
your vehicle and we may be able to email you an exception. To send us
an email, Click HERE or go to the Contact Us page.
