Saturday night, we showed Pee-wee’s Big Adventure at the West Chester Guerilla Drive-In. We had planned to show the movie at Baldwin’s Book Barn, but rain moved us to the wonderful old wooden barn at the Brandywine Valley Association.
Highlights of the show were the Tequila dance class that Kristen taught (with toe stands in Matt’s silver platform shoes!) and our special musical guests the Spinto Band, who came and played Danny Elfman’s overture, as well as a few of their own songs — and, of course, “Deep in the Heart of Texas!”
Here’s 37 seconds of video that Chris Young pieced together from the photos and video that folks took at the show! Thanks, Chris!
Before and during the show, my 16MM projector broke down no less than three times, in three different ways; you can click the photo at left to see the gory details. Fortunately, we were able to fix it three times, and I’ve sworn to study and faithfully follow that projector’s service manual.
I had a great time, and am very grateful to all the folks that came out to help. Our last movie this year will be in October! If you want to know where and when, all you have to do is get out there and find the MacGuffin!
