Awhile back, I asked readers to select what movies they’d show at their dream drive-in show. Thanks to these folks who replied!
John S. Barry: Sonny Boy, Curtains, Disconnected, Phantasm 4, Fathers Day, Town That Dreaded Sundown, Mutant. Tried to get into the idea of sitting outside in Kansas in the summer as a young man.
I’m totally down with The Town That Dreaded Sundown, I saw that at the drive-in a few years ago. The new one is really worth of watching, too!
Phil Freeman: The Stuff, Rolling Thunder, Desperate Living, Rock n Roll High School, Planet of the Vampires, 2,000 Maniacs, Spider Baby, Day of the Animals
J. Worthington Farnsworth: Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill!, Once Upon a Time in the West, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, The Shining, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Point Break, Snatch, Empire Strikes Back.
I like the range here. Pee Wee’s BIg Adventure is a great drive-in film and it ends at the drive-in!
