Movies Al Fresco: Screening Under the Stars

Remember those days when Bobby Ray would come over on a Friday night, in his best threads and flowers in hand, to take you out? Daddy would always rattle Bobby Ray's cage with those stern daddy-questions of his and ma would be trying to hush him and get Bobby to have another glass of lemonade. She'd bat her eyelashes excessively and say things like, "My! What a strapping young fella, you are. Sally Sue, isn't Bobby Ray such a stud?" til he blushed.

Once in the clear, we'd hop in his flip-top and go to the drive-in. Course, we'd never actually watch the flick (wink wink nudge nudge) but, by golly, we had a blast. He really razzed my berries and it was one fateful summer night - August 12, I remember it was - beneath all the stars and heavens above, that he asked me to go steady and gave me his class ring.

Swoon.

Remember those days?

Uhh yeah, me neither. [insert awkward pause] If the August 12 and movies al fresco portion sounded appealing, however, check out Pleasure Dome's Open Screening Under the Stars tonight.

Participants can bring any sort of film or video they like (up to 10 minutes) and have it screened for a live audience. All formats welcome (16mm, super and regular 8, VHS, DVD and mini DVD video) and in all stages of completion or disarray. The shorts will be shown on a first-come, first-screened basis and participants must be there before 9pm. Everyone else, join the party at 9:30pm at Richmond and Spadina.

What: Open Screening Under the Stars
When: Saturday, August 12 at 9:30pm
