Starlight Drive-In Movie Experience - Prisoners & Riddick

Chow and flicks with friends in the great outdoors... Does it get any better than this?!

Location(s): 2000 Moreland Avenue SE, Atlanta, GA, 30376 @ 6:45 PM or Dave's Place @ 5:45 PM.

Screen 1: PRISONERS @ 8:30 w/ RIDDICK @ 11:25

We'll meet "in line" at 6:45 PM. You can get out of your car and socialize. Gates will open 7PM'ish, but we want as many cars as possible in the front of the queue to secure as much of the first row of our theater as possible. Please bring a snack or side dish to share and beverages (child or adult) of your choice in non-glass containers. The web site has conflicting information on grilling (permitted and not permitted), but historically, we've always been able to grill. I'll bring my two portable grills, charcoal, paper plates, forks, cups, napkins, tongs, mustard, buns, and brats.

Bring a camping chair and, if you have one, a battery-powered FM radio or boombox. Please post what you're bringing for chow and if you have a radio/boombox. We'll need a couple of them, for the best experience.

The first movie starts at 8:30'ish and the second, soon after the end of the first. Both are included in your $7 per-person entrance fee. Car-pooling is encouraged. You're welcome to meet at my place at 5:45 PM (prompt) for people-consolidation.

You don't have to stay for both movies. Also, if you arrive too late to get a parking spot with us, park where you can and bring your camping chair to the front row and sit with us. Look for my badly aged 1996 maroon and silver Dodge Ram.

Please help clean up, after the movies. Hug your host. And rate the event with five stars, if you have fun. :) If it looks like rain, I'll bring some canopies and tarps, but the chances look low (10%), as of Tuesday.

See you there!

    Riddick sucked but I didnt want to be a party pooper and leave. I like Prisoners, though.

    Update: Look for David Wright's black Jeep SUV. I'm riding with him. We'll also be setting up canopies, assuming that we don't get in trouble for it. :)

    I don't think I'm up for all the rain and the cold either. I'm going to sit this one out

      Just put on your paddle gear. ;)

    Looks like rain chances drop to 0% for an hour or two of grill-time (7-9pm). Then there's a second wave of rain, which clears in an hour. http://www.weather.com/weather/hourbyhour/graph/Atlanta+GA+30376:4:US

    Will bring both canopies and side tarps for our little movie-viewing room. :)

    I am sitting here looking at the heavy rain. I was looking forward to my first meet up with this group. The ground is going to be so wet. Can we do next week?

    • David

      I will be out of town, but if someone else wants to organize, y'all are welcome to. It's a parking lot, so don't sweat the ground being wet.

      So Sorry David, I am going to have to join you next time due to the rain/cold. Hope to meet everyone next time.

    It's perfectly fine to grill. Just be finished by the time the movie starts and don't dump the hot coals in the trash. (Yes, you do have to tell people not to do this.) :-)

      Unfortunately all of my personalities share one body. I'll be there in spirit though.

    Is this a multi group event?

      Angelitha, this is not a multi meetup event; however many of us within the group have multiple personalities. Does that count?
