i want to give a big public thank you to ed inman for his backyard showing of ‘garden state‘ last night…for those of you that don’t know, ed has a mini drive-in (walk-in??) theater setup behind his house on meadowbrook heights…every now and again he’ll invite people over and show a movie…i’ve never been to a true drive-in theater before so this was my first real outdoor movie experience and it was a blast…first, as i’d heard from everyone who’d seen it, the movie was just great…it really develops a comfortable atmosphere that makes its more serious moments that much more poignant…second, being able to throw down a blanket to lie on and sip a flask of cheap whiskey while you’re watching a film really adds to the experience…

the weather was great and it was a treat to look past the screen and see convoys of clouds, cast in that sodium vapor street light orange, rolling by…i think i would have enjoyed the movie no matter where i saw it, but i don’t think i would have enjoyed it near as much in a regular theater or @ my house on television…when we had arrived there were only 5/6 of us there, but when i looked back during the reel change there were 10 or 15 people including families, which made for a nice community atmosphere…so thanks again, ed, you done good and let’s do it again soon…
ps – ‘garden state’ shows again tonight @ hal and mal’s (big room, 7:30 pm) as part of the crossroads film series…graham and i are watching monday night football, but if you’ve got the chance, go see the movie and support local showings of indie films…
