The Netflix Rolling Roadshow

Someone at Netflix had a great idea: screen classic American movies at the locations they helped make famous. For example they are showing The Shining at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO where Stephen King was inspired and wrote it. Or you can see Escape from Alcatraz at Alcatraz or Clerks at the Quick Stop in New Jersey.
They are combing the movie screening with other activities, too. You can play street hockey before the Clerks showing (not on the roof though), go to prom after watching Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, or participate in a scavenger hunt in the subways of New York before the showing of The Warriors at Coney Island. Some screenings will also include cast reunions and question-and-answer sessions with the filmmakers. Pretty cool.

  1. It would be really exciting to have netflix show Fried Green Tomatoes in Juliette, GA at the Whistle Stop Cafe-which is still in operation! I think this is a fantastic idea-the concept of showing the movie in the location which it was filmed. The Breakfast Club-total 80’s classic, should be shown at the high school it was filmed at and stage a character look-a-like-contest. Something like that.
