MORE INFORMATION

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 7:30 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 BLOB

THE BLOB
1988, Sony Repertory, 95 min, USA, Dir: Chuck Russell

Screenwriter Frank Darabont (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION) and director Chuck Russell (THE MASK) teamed up for this exceptionally scary (and exceptionally gory) remake of the 1950s cult favorite, resulting in a rare reboot that’s superior to the original. Cheerleader Shawnee Smith and rebel biker Kevin Dillon team up to take on an amorphous substance that engulfs an entire small town while shadowy government operatives try to figure out how to harness its power; the substance itself – the blob of the title – is a marvel of state-of-the art 1980s special effects that still holds up today.

About THE FLY

THE FLY
1986, 20th Century Fox, 100 min, USA, Dir: David Cronenberg

This new version of the 1958 sci-fi hit isn’t just a remake but a complete reimagining, with director David Cronenberg mixing in his own sensibilities about organic life and its startling mutability. Teletransporter inventor Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) inadvertently mixes his genes with a house fly’s when he decides to use himself as test subject. His future as a human being, including his romance with science writer Veronica (Geena Davis), changes forever as he begins a slow slide into a gooey half-man/half-insect, complete with superpowers and messianic delusions of grandeur. Chris Walas and Stephen Dupuis won Oscars in 1987 for Best Make-Up.
