When Iowa farmer Ray hears a mysterious voice one night in his cornfield saying “If you build it, he will come,” he feels the need to act. Despite taunts of lunacy, Ray builds a baseball diamond on his land, supported by his wife, Annie. Afterward, the ghosts of great players start emerging from the crops to play ball, led by “Shoeless” Joe Jackson. But, as Ray learns, this field of dreams is about much more than bringing former baseball greats out to play.
HACKENSACK DRIVE-IN FAQS

Is there a live person to talk to if I call for information?
Can I come into the movie after it has started?
No, you must be parked by the start of the movie.
Can I leave before it ends?
You can leave at any time during a movie. You must use only your parking lights if a movie is in progress. Daytime running lights must be dimmed either by engaging your emergency brake one notch or by physically covering your headlamps.
Will I be allowed to re-enter movie night if I have left for some reason during the evening?
How do I listen to the movies?
We broadcast the movie sound/audio using FM radio signal. You can use your car’s FM radio or you can bring a portable FM radio with you.

Patrons are advised to turn their key to the “Accessory” position only. Most patrons do not experience a dead battery at evening’s end.
Can we “run” our car if it rains, is too hot, is too cold?
Car engines cannot be running. It is against the law to idle for more than three minutes. Momentary starts are okay but that is all. In cooler weather, dress warm and bring blankets.
