After installing the add-on, the player will receive a radio signal in the form of a mysterious broadcast about an invitation to the "Midnight Science Fiction Feature!" at the Mojave Drive-in. After arriving, a satellite is found crashed in the middle of the drive-in lot.
Between 11pm and 3am, the satellite projects a movie of a peering eye on the drive-in's screen. Activating the satellite during this time will bring up the prompt window, explaining what the player is about to enter, and that they won't be able to return until completion. Additionally, the prompt explains that a minimum player level of 15+ is recommended and that players are able to take their gear to Big MT. However no companions are able to join the Courier and must be left in the Mojave.
Selecting that the player is ready, will teleport them to Big MT and show the opening slide show of Old World Blues.
Standing in front of the projection beam does not appear to distort the image on the screen at all.
Activating the satellite can be problematic, as waiting for the midnight showing may sometimes respawn the nearby mole rats in the distance. A Viper leader, or Viper gang member may also spawn as well. This can result in a prompt telling you that you cannot activate the satellite while you're in combat.
pc The script of this quest intends to reward the certain value of XP (depend on the player's level) when the player arrived at Big Empty. However, because of the bug in the script, the player can get only 10 XP for this quest.
