The parking lot closes to cars 1.5 hours before showtime. Chair setup is allowed after that point. The Wine Bin offers beer and wine tastings before the movie. There is popcorn available for a donation to Howard County's Voices for Children. The movies are a free event, but please be aware that The Bin pays $1,000's of dollars each year to license and show the movies... A few rules to consider:
-No smoking on The Wine Bin property
-No talking during the movie
-Please purchase your alcohol from The Bin
-Please be polite and courteous to your fellow movie goers and share the space
Frequently Asked Questions
When do the Movies Start?
We hit the play button at 9PM May to August. 8PM after August
Do you show the Movies Rain or Shine?
Neither...can't show them when is raining or when the sun is out.
How do we find out if a movie is cancelled?
We post the cancellation or movie change on our Facebook page.
Can we drink in the parking lot?
Yes, that's the only way we make money to help pay for the movie.
Who puts the movies on?
The Wine Bin...We often hear how nice it is that "they" put the movies on and how it must help our business. We are the "they". We get no county financial support for doing the movies. On occasion we get an organization/business that would like to sponsor a movie and they help offset the license fee. In the past few years we have received a partial sponsorship from Howard County Tourism.
Are the movies family friendly?
We show a wide range of movie styles. Some movies may not be appropriate for you or your family. Please visit IMDB.com to view parental warnings for each film to help you decide what is appropriate for your child and yourself.
