If you are about my age then you probably grew up going to Drive-In movies with your family. You probably couldn’t see anything or hear anything because you were stuck in the back seat with your kid brother (or sister) while your parents monopolized the sweet viewing from the front seat. You probably remember hearing exaggerated make out stories from your friends older siblings that took place at the Drive-In. You probably remember dreaming of the day you go there with some hot chick of your own to not see some movie you didn’t care about. *wink* *wink* You probably also remember that every Drive-In in the country closed up about a week and a half before you were allowed to go there on your own, completely destroying any chance you ever had of getting some action at the movies. Insert immortal words of Nelson Munz here.
But wait! All hope is not lost. The folks behind Hollywood Mob Mov (mobile movie) are out to recreat the Drive-In experience right down to the fogged up windows. With a projector and an FM transmitter built into a car, the MobMov guys just need a parking lot with a big blank wall and presto! Guerilla Drive-in.
Definition of a Mobile Movie
A “mobile movie” or mobmov for short, is quite simply a drive-in that drives-in. Participating in a mobmov is very similar to attending a drive-in from the days of old, except now the projector is located inside and powered by a car, and the audio is piped in stereo over the FM band to your car. It’s a new technological twist to a nostalgic idea.
How do I participate in a MobMov?
Simple. Sign up to our mailing list. Showings will be held at various locations all around the Los Angeles area. The day before each Mob, we’ll e-mail everyone with the location and the movie. If you want to join in, all you have to do is fill your car with your friends and find the spot.
