Fort Mifflin, Pennsylvania: 16MM Outdoor Movies at Secret Locations

16MM Movies at Secret Locations

Outdoor Movies in Fort Mifflin, PennsylvaniaThe Guerilla Drive-In is an organization that projects 16MM movies in interesting locations in and around the West Chester, Pennsylvania area. Since 2007 the group has staged secret film viewings in settings that match the theme of the movie being screened. For example: Caddyshack was shown at a golf course, Meatballs at a canoe rental company and Ghostbusters at the supposedly haunted Fort Mifflin. All movies are shown using a 1970's Eiki school projector, which is mounted on a 1977 BMW R100/7 sidecar rig. The process to gain admittance to the GDI's member list is an adventure in and of itself. Prospective members need to find the MacGuffin - an orange Pelican case filled with an AM transmitter, wired to an ex-Retropod Sony Sports Walkman, playing a continuous-loop answering machine cassette that plays the secret access code needed to join. After finding the MacGuffin, you have to take a picture of yourself with it, email the access code and picture, and you're in. Once on the list, details on how to get to the screenings are sent out the week of the showing. Source:
