"Good, clean, weird family entertainment" is how the Lucky 13 Outdoor Cinema billed itself as it announced its sixth season starting on Sunday evenings June 14 through Labor Day weekend in the parking lot at 1 North Main St., where the movies will be shown on the side of Basin Spring Bath House.
Movies will start at dusk, and viewers are encouraged to B.Y.O.S. -- bring your own seating. Anything from lawn chairs and air mattresses are standard, but seating has included couches, lazy boys, boats and dining tables for anniversary parties.
The Lucky 13 is the creation of Charlotte Buchanan's glamOrama Productions. GlamOrama has been producing outdoor cinema since 1992, and Buchanan is a Seattle Ticket Master award winner for outdoor cinema.
A bargain at twice the price
For a $3 donation ($1 for children), the evenings combine live music, sometimes double features, animation, local color and zany contests dedicated to creating local and interactive entertainment for all ages.
As Buchanan put it, "Just when you thought you could not have any more fun in a parking lot without a car ..."
Each show includes prizes as well. A Shopping Spree Bucks giveaway and other prizes will be awarded for best movie theme audience participation for those willing to become part of the entertainment by making a spectacle of themselves.
