How do we listen to the movie?

Audio will be streamed via an FM station directly through your car’s FM stereo. Turn your key to accessory mode to keep your stereo on.  If you don’t have an FM stereo, or are concerned about your vehicle’s battery, bring a portable FM radio with fresh batteries or download a radio app to connect to an FM station. Another option is to tune in and connect with a portable speaker through Bluetooth using your mobile hotspot.

Does my car need to be turned on the whole time?

If your FM radio source is your car radio, your key should be turned to accessory mode. If you are not using your car radio, then you do not need to keep your car running during the show. If you do keep your battery on, be sure to start your car every so often to keep your car battery strong.
