About the Mission Tiki Drive-In

This event takes place at the Mission Tiki Drive-In Theatre at 10798 Ramona Ave in Montclair, CA 91763. PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY – we recommend arriving up to an hour and a half before showtime, as the line for entering the lot can take a long time. We will have a music playlist to entertain you as you enter. The drive-in opens at 6:30 PM. There are several screens at the theatre (any lane gets you into any screen); Cinematheque signage will direct you to our event.

The audio for the movies is broadcast through an FM transmitter radio. If you do not have this or the quality in your car is not good, you can bring a battery-operated stereo with speakers to hear the movies.

Large SUVs should sit in the back half of the theater as to not obstruct the view of other moviegoers. All cars should turn off headlights so as to not interrupt the viewing experience.

Social distancing is required at this event. Do not not park your vehicle within six feet of another vehicle. You must only view the movie from inside your vehicle. If you leave your vehicle to visit the bathroom or snack bar, you must wear a mask. See the Mission Tiki’s “About” page for additional information.

About THE DAY OF THE BEAST

THE DAY OF THE BEAST
(EL DÍA DE LA BESTIA)
1995, 99 min, Spain/Italy, Dir: Álex de la Iglesia

Two-thousand years after the birth of Christ, the Anti-Christ is about to be born – unless Father Ángel Berriartúa (Álex Angulo) can stop it. The Basque priest believes he can prevent the apocalypse by infiltrating the ranks of the devil, though that will require him to trade in his pious life for one of non-stop sin. Aided by a heavy metal fan (Santiago Segura) and an occult TV show host (Armando De Razza), Ángel raises hell through Madrid as Christmas Eve – and the possible end of the world – approaches in Álex de la Iglesia’s wickedly funny cult classic. In Spanish and Italian with English subtitles.

About PERDITA DURANGO

PERDITA DURANGO
(aka DANCE WITH THE DEVIL)
1997, 129 min, Mexico/Spain, Dir: Álex de la Iglesia

Álex de la Iglesia’s first English-language feature stars Rosie Perez as Perdita Durango, whose trip to Mexico is sidelined by all-purpose felon Romeo Dolorosa (Javier Bardem). Perdita’s new beau traffics human fetuses to Las Vegas where they’re turned into cosmetics; naturally they need a couple of human sacrifices to do the job right. But nothing goes according to plan as law enforcement and Dolorosa’s underworld associates converge on the pair. Shocking, satirical and action-packed, this road movie offers plenty for Perez and Bardem to sink their teeth into, and they’re supported by a great cast including James Gandolfini, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and Santiago Segura. In English and Spanish with English subtitles.

About Recent Spanish Cinema

Since 1994, the Recent Spanish Cinema series (http://www.larecentspanishcinema.com/) has brought the biggest and best Spanish films to eager Los Angeles audiences, with the goal to expose them to Spanish culture, from art and music to food, fashion and more. Presented by the American Cinematheque, ICAA and EGEDA US, Recent Spanish Cinema has always showcased new talent on the rise, and over the years, the directors and actors spotlighted by the series read like a “who’s who” of the Spanish film industry.

Recent Cinema from Spain (http://miami.recentcinemafromspain.com/) was set up in Miami in 2011 as an initiative of EGEDA US aiming to provide a new outlet for the promotion of Spanish cinema on the East Coast, boosting its circulation to the public in general and the international audiovisual industry. It operates in partnership with The Olympia Theater in Miami.

This year, the Los Angeles and Miami Spanish film series join forces to co-host and present a combined special edition of Recent Spanish Cinema that is both a LOG-IN and DRIVE-IN event, tailored to fit the pandemic situation. This year’s annual series features virtual screenings, live Zoom panels with filmmakers, talent and industry leaders and drive-in screenings in each city.
