The good folks at the Mission Tiki Drive-In will once again be hosting the Southern California Drive-in Movie Society tomorrow (Saturday) night, and they’ve invited the Inland Mopars Car Club to come out and join the fun as well. It’s a SoCalDIMS tailgater, which means SocalDIMS and Inland Mopars members and their guests will be rumbling through the gates for early admission at 6:30 p.m., so as to get the best spots on the lot to see James Mangold’s 3:10 to Yuma, the updating of the 1957 western which starred Glenn Ford and Van Heflin. (It's Russell Crowe as Ford and Christian Bale as Heflin in 2007.) Lots of car gawking, heavy snacking (the snack bar will open early) and socializing amongst drive and car geeks—er, fans!—will take place between arrival and show time, so get there early. The tailgaters are always fun (the first one we had earlier this year, for Grindhouse, really set the standard), and if you’re in the Los Angeles area we really hope you can bring your cooler, your blankets, your Nerf badminton set and, of course, your bad self and make this tailgate party the centerpiece of your Saturday night.
