The Lark Drive-In

We've attended screenings here and it's a lot of fun! Cars are parked by size so everyone has an optimal view, and you can tailgate if you want. Tune in to the movie soundtrack on your car stereo at FM 91.3, or listen along on your phone or tablet. All guidelines provided by Marin Health and Human services must be observed such as wearing masks if you leave your car to go to the portable toilets, which are cleaned by volunteers after each use.

Ticket prices are $30 per car, $25 for Lark Members and $17 for solo drivers ($15 members). All tickets must be purchased in advance online, and shows usually sell out. Bring the kids, blankets, pillows, and snacks. Village restaurants will offer special meal deals for drive-in moviegoers. To purchase tickets, visit www.larktheater.net.
