In this July series of blog posts Cravings Gourmet Popcorn acknowledges events, people and businesses that positively contribute to the unique identity and experience of Old Town.
We remember going to the drive-in movie theatre as a fun family summer time treat. The kids would all pile into the family station wagon with blankets and jammies and a big bag of fresh popped popcorn for snacks. The speaker was taken off the post and hung on the car window and we were in for a night of fun!
In Old Town we are in our third year showing outdoor movies as a nod to those family fun times gone by. You will be sitting-in instead of a driving-in to our outdoor theatre set-up. Our huge screen and audio system is put against the wall of the old Chrome Cat building at the base on Turner Street and Grand River, special thanks to sponsors like Such Video.
This year the movie selections are: Rear Window (Albert Hitchcock Thriller) Ghostbusters, and the comedy Three Amigos (Chevy Chase, Steve Martin and Martin Short). Commemorative posters have been created for you to purchase, another way to support the efforts of the Old Town Commercial Association.
The family friendly/family safe movies start after dark so be sure to bring your own chair/blanket, beverages, snacks. Beginning on July 19th on Friday nights the family movie line up is as follows:
July 19, 2013, 10:00 pm - 11:30 pm Three Amigos
July 26, 2013, 10:00 pm - 11:30 pm Rear Window
August 9, 2013 10:00 pm – 11:30 pm Ghostbusters
Cravings will be open late so be sure to stop in before the movie starts to get your popcorn and soda.
