View Full Version : Mini Drive-In Movie

August 6th, 2008, 03:29 PM
I would like to see if anyone would be interested in putting together a Drive-In Movie at a local triad park either this fall or spring of 09'. I have the large inflatable 14' x 25' screen and sound for those who want ot sit outside and I can pump the sound into all the car radios. I think this would be a great time for members to get together for a evening cook out and a movie afterward.
Just and idea.

I was talking to a couple members this past Monday about doing this but with a little spin on it. We had the idea of putting on a movie for the kids at Camp Carefree just north of Greensboro. We have adopted the Camp as one of our charities.

I just need to think how we can raise money to make a donation also.

I know the kids would have a blast

To start each car could make a small donation....

I'm in! I saw the remake of the Italian Job 3 times in the theatres.

I'm all for it for us and Camp Carefree. If we were to do one for Camp Carefree even without a donation, I think they would love to have us there just for them to kinda take a night off and watch a movie with us all..

That sounds great. Count us in...and this time we can bring the little Mini, instead of Mom's big Mini.

Big Mini<< Oxymoron, that's like a Giant Shrimp:) I will bring my Mini-ature Mini:) I am assuming the blow up screen and projector will take DVDs. I would be happy to lend my copies of the classic and new versions of The Italian Job. I live very close to Camp Carefree so if there is any help needed setting up or helping, I am there!

Actually, I do have a Mini-ature Mini (from Ridemakerz), and a very tiny Mini (matchbox size), and what the Mini ads call the "Jumbo Shrimp" (clubman). The big Mini I referred to is Mom's minivan we took to the last drive-in adventure in Mt. Airy before my Clubman arrived. :)

:) How funny that MINI calls the Clubman a Jumbo Shrimp.

Has anyone considered doing the campfree Mini Drive-in anymore?

I hope it 's still in the works. I sure would be interested in attending. Sounds like fun.

Ummm I'm embarrassed to admit this but....... I have never seen the Italian Job. YIKES!! Somebody make this happen. I've been deprived!

August 21st, 2008, 10:40 PM
And there are two:) I have seen both many times but never in a Mini:)

The original Italian Job is the best, with Micheal "Bloody" Cain!
"I told you to only blow the bloody doors off!" - got to be my fav line in the movie
