Parking Lot Movie Theater
This is a parking log in uptown Vancouver, just 2 blocks from where I live now. See that building across the street? That's where they project the movie (starting at dusk and after some musical entertainment) using a computer and projection equipment like an ELMO..
Last week, we saw a science fiction movie called "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow."
I doubt it would be something I would choose to see if I had to pay money for it. It was something to while away a lazy summer evening. People bring their own blankets to sit on the ground or sand or lawn chairs. Just like the concerts at the park, blankets are in front, then sand chairs, then regular chairs. They even have refreshments for sale that are donated by the Kiggins Theater which is located downtown. Speakers are donated for use by a church for the event. It is a Saturday night neighborhood thing in July and August for 4 weeks. Two high school students entertained us with their guitars for accompaniment. There will be other groups each week.
