For years Omaha and the surrounding markets have felt the drive-in drought. After the last theater closed in Council Bluffs the community was left with a void. Facebook pages were born and many people talked about the idea of opening up a new place to host this long-time favorite cinema experience. Falconwood Park heard your voices and opened up the first drive-in movie theater this area has seen in over a decade!
Our first summer series was immensely popular prompting sellouts for most movies. We were greatly humbled and hope to see your continued support of this venture so we can keep the format alive for years to come! This year we are back and better than ever applying much of what we learned to provide you with the most authentic experience!
Falconwood Park does sell drive-in tickets at the gate, however, we strongly recommend purchasing your tickets ahead of time online as drive-in spots are limited and do quite frequently sell out. Online ticket sales for each show will end an hour before gates open. Tickets for our drive-in are priced per vehicle and are based on occupancy.
All movies start at dusk with the gates opening 2 hours prior. Times will be posted on each individual film.
A Drive-In pass is guaranteed a drive-in parking spot. 150 Drive-in spots are available. Spots are filled on a first come first serve basis.
Once the drive-in spots have been filled we have additional ticketing called a Park and Walk. Park and Walk patrons will park in a separate lot and are encouraged to bring blankets or chairs up to the viewing area in front of the screen to view the movie or meet up with your friends at their car. If you are getting tickets at the gate we suggest that you bring seating just in case we sell out of drive-in spots.
In addition to your Drive-In or Park and Walk pass, if you would like to camp after the show, you may purchase a tent pass for an extra $10 charge per tent.
Food trucks, a bar, and concessions are available at the venue and we encourage your patronage! No outside alcohol is allowed inside the park.
Times and dates subject to change due to weather or lack of interest. In the case of a cancelation we will try our best to find a reschedule date. In case that date doesn't work for you we can issue a refund or a credit for another film.
Can I bring my own food?
Yes, we do offer food from our food trucks and concessions but feel free to pack a cooler and bring in any other munchies your tummy desires.
Can I bring my own alcohol?
No, Falconwood Park has a liquor license and due to legal regulations no outside alcohol is allowed inside the park. We do have a bar next to concessions to purchase adult beverages from.
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, as long as they are well behaved and kept on a leash.
Do children get in free?
Children 2 years old and under may enter the park for free.
Do I have to sit in my car if I buy a drive-in pass?
No, feel free to get out and set up your chairs near your car or move your chairs to the front viewing area.
What time should we show up for a good drive-in spot?
Plan on showing up when the gates open for the best drive-in spot. If you arrive before the gates open you will be asked to wait until the designated time for us to park you.
What time should we come if we're going to camp after the movie?
Just make sure you get here early enough to set up your campsite before the movie starts.
