2013 Spring Series:
May 18 – Back to the Future
Downtown Drive-In, Parking Lot, 725 Jefferson Street | Gates open at 6pm
Much like Marty McFly, we'll be leaving the modern world for a trip Back to the Future to a time of Drive-In movies on May 18th in Downtown Lafayette! Marty McFly, a typical American teenager of the Eighties, is accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean “time machine” invented by slightly mad scientist. During his often hysterical, always amazing trip back in time, Marty must make certain his teenage parents-to-be meet and fall in love – so he can get back to the future.
May 25 – The Neverending Story
Parc International, 200 Garfield Street | Gates open at 6pm
Bastian is a young boy who lives a dreary life being tormented by school bullies. On one such occasion he escapes into a book shop where the old proprietor reveals an ancient story-book to him, which he is warned can be dangerous. Shortly after, he “borrows” the book and begins to read it in the school attic where he is drawn into the mythical land of Fantasia, which desperately needs a hero to save it from destruction.
