Well, I’m on my second late night compiling all the great answers to Professor Wagstaff’s Summer of 42 (Questions, That Is) Movie Quiz, and if I can get an early start tomorrow evening, I dare say there’ll be a little morsel to keep you occupied over about a week’s worth of bathroom sittings by sometime Thursday. (I’m always thinking of you, Mysterious Adrian Betamax. Always.)
Until that time, however, I didn’t want to let much time pass without trumpeting the new Web site for one of my favorite places (and hopefully yours too one day), the Mission Tiki Drive-in. The site went on-line Tuesday, and it’s a real beauty. Some of the departments are still under construction, but for the most part it’s up and running and looks to be a great harbinger of the complete tiki vision that will have overtaken and enhanced this already marvelous drive-in by May of next year. So give the site a click and start making plans to take advantage of the fact that, whether it’s at the Vineland, the Van Buren, the Rubidoux, the Mission Tiki, or even outdoor cinema locations in Barstow, 29 Palms or San Diego, drive-in season in Southern California doesn’t come to a screeching halt in October like it does in many other regions of the country.
I’m rounding up a group of hearty outdoor film fans for an invasion of the Mission Tiki this coming Saturday, so if you see a bunch of us lined up outside our cars, wrapped in blankets and thoroughly enjoying a double feature of Doom and Serenity, stop by and say hello!
