Outdoor Movie Night!

It’s the second annual Yaletown outdoor movie night. Where you get to watch a movie and hang out with friends.

When:  Sunday,  Jul 19th
Where: David Lam Park

It’s being done in conjunction with a community picnic. So the picnic starts from Noon – 4pm and then the movie starts at dusk.  They play the movie on a giant 40’x20′ screen and it’s usually a “secret” classic 80’s movie that they’ll play.

Given the clue they provide “who ya gonna call?”, we can safely guess it’ll be Ghostbusters playing. They suggest bringing along a blanket and flash light.  If it rains it’ll be postponed to the 26th.

Raiders: The Adaptation showing tonight in Vancouver

On the set, originally uploaded by TrueFalseFilmFestival.

When most people really love a movie they might go see it a few times in the movie theatre, buy it on DVD and quote their favorite lines to their friends. In 1982 three twelve year olds really loved Raiders of the Lost Ark and so they set about remaking it shot by shot. Eric Zala, Jayson Lamb and Chris Strompolos took until 1989 to complete the filming of their remake, and then they put the film away for the next 15 years [wm]. Since being discovered by web nerd Harry Knowles, founder of Ain’t It Cool News, the film has become a cult hit the trio have been to George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment studio where they met Spielberg.

Crudly shot on ’80s home video recording technology and acted by a cast of teenagers, the film is meant to be quite an experiance both as a tribute to the original Raiders and for a cultish campish event in its own right.

Raiders: The Adaptation is showing in Vancouver tonight. There is one showing only at 7 pm at The Park Theatre [gmt].
