Tonight we (not the royal we) went to see The Big Lebowski at the Sub Rosa Drive-in behind Simply Green in Dover, NH. The Sub Rosa Drive-in started up last summer as a guerrilla, or rogue drive-in. They would have a "secret" meeting location and started showing movies wherever they could. This sounds like a lot of fun, but the grown-up in me didn't want to deal with the cops that busted up a few of these get-togethers before they partnered up with Simply Green.
Tonight they kicked off the 2010 season with The Big Lebowski. I was pretty excited. We turned it into a family outing. This was Chuck's first movie experience outside of our home. We had everything planned out - chairs, beverages, a snack, an extra blanket for Chuck, and what have you. What we couldn't plan for was the rain the weather man said wasn't coming as of 3pm this afternoon.
The evening started off well and there was a great turn-out. We had some choice front-row seats as I felt a big drop of water hit my head during the previews. Liz ended up walking Chuck around to keep her happy and as the intermittent sprinklings came and went, she decided to get back into the car to keep Chuck out of the weather. I tried to stick it out, but after an hour or so into the film, the rain really started to come down. Everyone headed back into their cars as the downpour unleashed and Larry had to kill the movie. It was a bummer, man.
I'm not sure if Sub Rosa will try to re-show The Big Lebowski, but even if they don't I know they have an awesome line-up of more films on the way for this season. If you live in the seacoast area of New Hampshire you should really check them out. They used to have a blog/site, but it just shows a picture of a cat right now. You can follow them on Twitter (@SubRosaDriveIn) though and stay updated that way. Maybe we'll even get a chance to interview the founders at some point and get a few leads on what it takes to setup a drive-in or what it takes to license a film for viewing purposes.
