Well the time has come to announce the details of the Last Minute Drive-In Movie details. Now you know why it was called last minute-first, the movies are announced the Wednesday before and second the weather around here is pretty changeable!
First the movies, yes, all these, back to back, dusk till dawn, you may leave at any time, they do not lock the gates!
From the Walt Disney Studios, WHICH WILL SHOW ON 35MM MOTION PICTURE FILM, the fun family treat starring the Late, Great, Robin Williams, “FLUBBER” is rated PG. "FLUBBER" is NOT available yet in the digital format. The family friendly, live action sci-fi comedy “FLUBBER” will show only ON Saturday & Sunday to lead off the dusk ‘til dawn shows just after our opening at 7:45pm. This choice was made because we can have an "exclusive" on this fun family treat, as not many theatres in the country maintained their ability to show the 35mm motion picture format, and the rating is perfect.)
YES, all the rest are show in digital, of course!
“TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES” the number 2 movie in the country rated PG13, plays second at 9:45pm on all night Saturday and Sunday.
Still in the top 10 at the box office, the new release “The Giver” rated PG13, starring Brenton Thwaites and academy award winners Jeff Bridges & Meryl Streep, in the wide screen sci fi stunningly visual film based on the best selling novel. “THE GIVER,” with a 7.1 rating out of 10 on the Internet Movie Data Base, will show at 11:45pm on all night Saturday and Sunday.
“The Expendables 3” rated PG13, and at number 6 in the top 10 movies this week, this wide screen action adventure, with an all star cast including Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Harrison Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kelsy Grammer, Mel Gibson, and my fingers are sore from typing just getting to there. “THE EXPENDABLES 3” will B L A Z E across the biggest theatre screen, into the dawn on all night Saturday & Sunday.
That leaves the marvelous wide screen action adventure and fantasy of “HERCULES” rated PG13, with rave revues from audiences and critics alike. “HERCULES” stars Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Ian McShane, just to name a few. “HERCULES” will show ONLY on all night Saturday and Sunday, and will show AFTER the box office closes, NO ONE is admitted to the Bengies after the box office is closed, so be in by midnight to see this amazing spectacle!
Optional dinner (but please reply so I can get a final head count) will be at By the Docks next before Bengies, incredible crab cakes and seafood. We will meet for dinner at 5pm, reservation will be for 5:15 for late comers.
After dinner, about 6:30pm we will convene in the parking lot to sort out who is riding with who into the movie. Bengies has a double occupancy policy, at least two people per car, so we usually leave a few cars (with permission) at By the Docks and consolidate cars.
What to bring CASH CASH CASH! Bengies is a cash business, hit the ATM before hand. Blanket or folding chairs-we usually sit in front of the car. Bug spray is always a must, we are outside in August after all. A small FM boom box, Bengies transmits audio on FM, you can use your car radio or bring a small boom box, or just listen to everyone elses.
I have been doing this for over 10 years and have always had a blast!
Please RSVP so I can get a headcount for the movie and dinner!
