1. They're showing the film 'The Croods A New Age' at dusk or roughly 9 p.m., but you'll be able to park the car and start setting up your spot at 8 p.m.

2. You can bring in your own food, but food trucks will also be on-hand selling concessions for those who'd like to utilize that option.

3. This is not a rain or shine event. If the weather turns bad, the event will be rescheduled for Friday, May 28. So far, the weather forecast looks like it'll hold up. There's a slight chance of thunderstorms early on, but that should turn to partly cloudy Friday evening.

4. There's no need to get a ticket or sign up in advance. You just need to show up. However, it's first come first served. So, get there early to get a good spot. Bigger vehicles like vans and SUVs will be directed to park in the back of the lot.

5. You will be able to hear the movie through your own FM radio in the car. They'll have instructions for you at the event.

The event will be in the parking lot of Big Lake Lakeside Park which is located at 101 Lakeshore Drive in Big Lake. Check out the movie trailer below and enjoy the show!
