Go and see a screening of "THE BUS" at the Rio Theatre!

Hi folks! I was recently contacted (yesterday) by a film maker who is showing a screening of his documentary called THE BUS (www.busmovie.com) on June 2nd. The film explores the history and cultural significance of the VW bus. Check out the website and be sure to watch the trailer. There have already been a number of screenings throughout North America.  It looks AMAZING and is definitely something we don't want to miss! Let's spread the word as it is screening very soon.... Saturday, June 2 at 2pm.  Maybe we could go for a drink afterwards on Commercial Drive!

It even has interviews with Lucas from Gowesty and some footage from the Syncro de Mayo meet up!  It would be great if we could be there to support THE BUS!

    The film was Great! .... it would have been even better if I could have met up with others from the group. I looked around, but didn't see a "meetup"-like group, before or after the film.

    Hi Jeff. I'm not sure whether it is kid friendly. Try giving the theatre a call. I'd imagine it would be fine. David, the only parking I know of in the area is on Broadway or Commercial Drive. It is all meter parking from what I can remember. Otherwise, there is residential street parking in the area, but some of it may be permit parking.

    Is there any other parking around there, if one can't get ther early with a van?

    This sounds great, anyone know if it's kid friendly? I want to bring my 8-year old son! Thanks!

    The creator of the film has assured me it is on. He is contacting The Rio theater to make sure they advertise it on their website. Ryan, I think it would be sweet if we were all lined up out front of the theatre...but how are we going to secure all those spots? Its at the intersection of Commercial and Broadway. Maybe we should go there in the morning with our vans??
