Last Minute Drive-in Movie!

* * * Reservation is for 5 pm!!! * * *

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!

    Last minute add-on for myself and my son (as long as his BRZ is welcome to play w/the MINIs in MD!) for dinner. I won't be able to stay for the movies (silly work schedule) but Drew might .. see you ... if anyone heading from Frederick wants to caravan, please post. Looking forward to my first C3M outting as a Mer-lander MINI ;-)

    August 30, 2014

    • Mike P.

      Susan, if you want to meet up to caravan, perhaps we can do that. We'll be coming from Westminster, so how does the park & ride off of Route 70 @ Route 32 sound? We were thinking around 4pm. Give us a shout anytime today [masked]) -Mike

    Jarry
    I'm interested in going but my friend is away on business and I know they have policy against one person per car, so is there anyone in a similar situation? Interested in going but no partner also I would like to know what's playing?

    Thank you ,

      Thanks for the info, Didn't see it. Oh well, Sucks to be dyslexic

      Solo drivers are discouraged that is why we meetup at by the docks after dinner to consolidate cars-parking at by the docks is next to Bengies-don't worry about being solo, we will work it out

      August 27, 2014

  • Jarry

    I'm still thinking about the drive in this weekend as for the house rules anyone thinking of going solo check out there website they have the right to refuse solo driver unless your a regular and call a head.

      did you read where your dog also has to be muzzled? I was expecting them to also request we bring a virgin for sacrificing.

      August 26, 2014

    • Obsessive

      Mr Vogel can be a little medieval at times but is really nice once you get to know him, his house rules has kept him and his family running the place almost sixty years while everyone else went out of business, most of the rules make sense in that context

      August 27, 2014

  • Obsessive

    We have a cure for the single seat rule-we usually double up (or more) and leave our cars at By the Docks next door-we don't sit in our cars anyway-we bring blankets and folding chairs and sit in front of the cars

    August 27, 2014

  • Bill W.

    This weekend:
    Flubber
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    The Giver
    Hercules
    The Expendables 3

    August 25, 2014

    • Mike P.

    Sorry, decided on other plans. Burning some use-or-lose time and taking off Fri thru Tue, so I'll be heading south instead of north. Again, sorry.

    August 25, 2014

  • Butch 5.

    Still on the fence if I will be able to make it or not. Does any one know what movie will be showing?

    August 24, 2014

  • Will S

    Will go on the later date tentative depending on what's playing.
