All the must-watch and the must-rewatch films are coming to town!
New York’s prestigious Tribeca film festival is coming to Los Angeles in the form of a series of drive-in classic movie screenings and comedy acts in what’s set to be a much-needed nostalgic ritual for all ages (old enough to drive). All the events will take place at the Pasadena Rose Bowl parking lot for the entire month of July.
The films will range with titles across the ages and bound to include a favorite seminal title for everyone. To list a few: Space Jam; Apollo 13; E.T; Jaws; and Invasion. There is even an opportunity to bring the kids and simulate those heart-warming low fi days watching: The Never-Ending Story; and The Wizard of Oz.
For those of you wanting some coming of age comedy, Superbad will be on the big screen and Mean Girls for good measure. And don’t forget, there’ll comedy playing from July 9 to the 12, with stand up from Daniel Webb, Dave Helem, Erica Rhodes and Ester Steinberg. For those of you that can’t make it, there’ll be a recording by Comedy Dynamics for release at a later stage.
“As an immediate and safe solution, we’re excited to bring new and classic works from filmmakers, creators, and artists to communities across the country through the Tribeca Drive-In series. As the nation begins to emerge from months of quarantine, we look forward to movie theaters reopening and hope that the Drive-In serves as a reminder of the magic of the moviegoing experience,” said Tribeca Enterprises and Tribeca Film Festival Co-Founder and CEO Jane Rosenthal.
Fill up the vehicle and make a night of it. At $30 dollars per film or show ($26.60 per vehicle with a $3.40 processing fee), with a percentage of the profits going to Black Lives Matter. While tickets are a little more than usual, it’s a one-off festival bound to be unforgettable.
