Wednesday, June 19
at the Clairmont Pig!
(off University BLVD.)
Show starts about 9:15
It's a weird concept to be doing the "Downtown Drive-in" once again. After the final show last summer, I was convinced we would never do another -- what, after blowing a small fortune on doing everything "legally", such as renting out a parking lot, properly licensing a movie for public exhibition, and, yes, even taking out insurance on the whole damn thing. Basically, I got burnt out -- both financially and brain-wise.
But in recent weeks, I've really wanted to do another one. This time, though, I wanted to try and do what I've always wanted all along: the Downtown Drive-in will be 100 % unofficial. The advertising will be under-the-table, as well as all (*cough*) legal worries.
We tried a show last week in the parking lot of the Clairmont Pig, where we watched the Carpenter cult flick, "Big Trouble in Little China", just to see if we could get away with it. Not only did no one bother us, but we were greeted by a few carloads of folks who noticed us and decided to drop in, making us a special part of their late night escapades.
This, of course, is not to say that Wednesday night's showing of "Army of Darkness" will not be absent of our special friends in blue, but I genuinely believe if they show up, they will either be cool with the whole deal and let us carry on (as we are not hurting anybody), or simply ask us to leave, which'll be a bummer, but oh well.
So come out and take place in this cool underground experience -- the (hopefully) first "official...unofficial" show of the summer. It'll be the "S"-Mart-est" thing you can do on a Wednesday night!
