  • V.I.M. ticket-holders will be allowed to place chairs and blankets on the grass in front of the screen to be part of the live studio audience for the on-stage segments. This space is limited, so it will only be available to those who arrive early. Total audience size will be determined by The Last Drive-In production team due to safety and equipment concerns, so grass seating is not 100 percent guaranteed with this ticket.

Please note: You must vacate the lot by noon unless you also have a V.I.M. Package for Sunday.
