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  NOSFERATU, THE VAMPYRE

NOSFERATU, THE VAMPYRE
(NOSFERATU: PHANTOM DER NACHT)
1979, AGFA, 107 min, Germany, Dir: Werner Herzog.
An homage to Murnau’s 1922 classic, Herzog’s NOSFERATU achieves its own hypnotic power by evoking a romantic past of waterfalls and mist-filled valleys, and through the eerie sensuality of Klaus Kinski’s performance. Like Aguirre and Fitzcarraldo, Kinski’s Nosferatu is driven by the need for an unknowable spiritual ecstasy – in this case, Isabelle Adjani’s ethereal Lucy. With Bruno Ganz. In German with English subtitles.

About TENDERNESS OF THE WOLVES

TENDERNESS OF THE WOLVES
(DIE ZÄRTLICHKEIT DER WÖLFE)
1973, AGFA, 82 min, Germany, Dir: Ulli Lommel.
Ulli Lommel’s unforgettable cult horror film THE TENDERNESS OF THE WOLVES follows Fritz Haarmann, aka the Vampire of Hanover, who was a real German serial killer responsible for the murder of two dozen boys and young men during the so-called “years of crisis” between World War I and II. Longtime R.W. Fassbinder collaborator Kurt Raab plays the repulsive killer, who uses his status as a police informant to lure his victims to their deaths and dismembers their bodies to sell the flesh to local restaurants. Although by no means an easy watch, this forgotten gem inspired by the early 70s New German Cinema movement certainly gets under the skin. Produced by Fassbinder himself, who also supplies a shifty cameo! In German with English subtitles.
