Netflix goes on the road
NETFLIX ROLLS OUT A ROADSHOW SCREENING MOVIES AT THEIR ACTUAL FILMING LOCATIONS
THE SKINNY: Here's a novel concept: NETFLIX, the largest online DVD rental service, is launching a screening event in August dubbed the 2006 NETFLIX ROLLING ROADSHOW which will embark on a 10-city tour to screen 10 popular Hollywood movies at their original filming locations.
From THE SHINING to FIELD OF DREAMS, this look like it's going to be one cool screening program.
The coast-to-coast trek will be hosted by a celebrity guide as it brings these modern day classics to communities large and small across the United States. Each screening offers attendees the opportunity to participate in activities based on the featured film's specific theme, such as a subway scavenger hunt in New York City for WARRIORS. In some cases, screenings will include cast appearances and Q&A sessions following the screening. CLERKS director Kevin Smith and cast members are expected to attend the screening at the Quick Stop shop in North Jersey.
The schedule of films and locations is posted here.
