For the fifth or sixth time (I can't even remember any more), I've designed the sound system for the Tribeca Film Festival outdoor (but car-free) "Drive In" It's a fun event, and it's free!
Here's some info from the website:
Enjoy cinema under the stars! The Tribeca Drive-In, the Festival's classic outdoor screening series, will present a 25th anniversary celebration of "Thriller," the family-friendly Meerkat Manor, and the winning film of the Fans' Favorite Football Flick in the plaza of the World Financial Center, April 24-26. Screenings are free and open to the public, and doors open at 6:30 p.m., with programs beginning at 7:30 and screenings at 8.
2008 Tribeca Drive-In Films
Join filmmaker and “Thriller” video director John Landis for a special 25th anniversary screening of Michael Jackson's epic 1984 music video, plus the classic Making of Thriller. Learn the Thriller dance and take part in the world's largest zombie disco. Become a zombie at the Thriller face-painting station. Cast your ballot at our Michael Jackson look-alike contest. We're kicking off the evening with a classic Solid Gold Dance Party. . . and bringing out the ghouls as soon as the sun goes down.
Using lively footage of wild African meerkats and Whoopi Goldberg's narration, this film ingeniously tells the story of Flower and her family. As imaginative as any cartoon, it will have kids begging for their very own baby meerkat (not recommended).
The third and final night of the Tribeca Drive-In will feature the winning film of the Tribeca/ESPN Fans' Favorite Football Flick competition, which pits 16 beloved football films in a head-to-head tournament to choose the ultimate gridiron classic. Rudy and We are Marshall were pitted against each other in the finals. What film prevailed?
