Image Submission

We encourage people who are taking pictures of drive-ins to request permission from the owner or manager. If no one is available, it is legal to take pictures from a vantage point on public property such as a nearby road.

Images are searchable by keywords in the description and credit. Using words like screen, marquee, concessions building (outside), snack bar (inside), ticket booth entrance, or box office will help make your images more searchable.

The following is considered to be inappropriate:

  • Violating the intellectual property rights of a third party
  • Posing as someone else in the credit
  • Providing any content that contains viruses, Trojan horses, worms, time bombs, cancelbots or other computer programming routines that are intended to damage, detrimentally interfere with, surreptitiously intercept or expropriate any system, data or personal information

Shipping Policy

Most orders will ship within 1 to 2 days, unless a special lead time is stated. If a product cannot ship within the estimated lead time, we will contact you and let you know.

NOTE: The lead time estimate does not include the time your order will take to reach you once we ship it. Shipping time depends upon the shipping option you choose.

For the most part, items can be shipped anywhere, using the ship method you choose from our site. However, a few items have restrictions on the ship methods available or the countries to which they can be shipped. The shopping cart takes into account any such restrictions so if you can select it, we should be able to do it. If an option is unavailable, i.e. International Shipping, then we simply cannot offer it at this time.

Shipments to United States, Non-Continental

Be aware that an additional shipping charge applies for US shipments outside of the continent.

Shipments to Canada

Shipping to Canada is available on some products. For these orders, we can guarantee shipment but not transit time or delivery since we cannot track shipments all the way to the customer's door. By placing an order with the Canada shipping option, you agree to these terms.

Availability

The availability estimate on each item's product detail page describes the item's inventory status. Items listed as "Available" are in stock and can be shipped out once your order is processed. For more information about our availability estimates, please refer to the list below.

Available: This means the item is in stock and available to ship out once your order is processed.

Preorder: This means the item has not been released yet, but you can still place an order for it. Please refer to our Preorder Policy.

Backorder: This means the item is not currently available but is expected to be available again in the future. Please refer to our Backorder Policy.

Unavailable: This means the item is no longer available, but may be available from another source. If we know one, we usually recommend them so that ultimately you can still obtain the item, even if not from us.

Backorders

Backordered items are not currently available, but are expected to be available again in the future. Estimates on when an item will be in stock again are rarely available from our supplier. If your need for the item is time-sensitive, ordering a product that is backordered is not recommended. To ensure valid payment, your payment will be processed as a deposit at the time of order placement, not when the product ships. You have the option of canceling your order at anytime up until the time it ships. For cancellations after the product has shipped, please refer to our Return Policy.

Preorders

Preordered items have not been released yet, but you can still place an order for them so you can get them as soon as they become available. Refer to the release date for an estimate of how long before the item is expected to be available. To ensure valid payment, your payment will be processed as a deposit at the time of order placement, not when the product ships. You have the option of canceling your order at anytime up until the time it ships. For cancellations after the product has shipped, please refer to our Return Policy.
