Roving Ideas

We are very close to finalizing plans for the first Roving Cinema in 2011 and we can't wait to announce it! We can say it will be on the evening of February 17, so mark your calendars and stay tuned here for more info very soon.

In the meantime, we wanted to give you a chance to weigh in on where the cinema should rove. Roving Cinema screens movies where they should be. For the inaugural event, Indy Film Fest screened Strange Brew, a cult classic flick set in a brewery, at Sun King in downtown Indianapolis. Our friends from Yelp provided complimentary popcorn, we had Bazbeaux pizza for sale and we packed the brewery with a sold out show.

Roving Cinema tickets and sign

To say the least, we had a blast, and now tentatively plan to hold 9 to 10 of these events in 2011. We have a few ideas and partnerships up our sleeve, but we want to hear your suggestions for movies matched with a unique location. Have a creative idea to share? Please tell us what you want to see and where!

p.s. Sign up for our emails here and be the first to know about the February Roving Cinema!

  1. Showing the Big Lebowski at a local Bowling Alley would be a great idea. Expo or Woodland bowl would be a perfect venue. Mark it 8, dude.

  2. Indiana Rooftop (Strictly) Ballroom

  3. ‘What Harry Met Sally’ at Shapiro’s.

    OK, that’s an awful idea. Though to be serious, they do have the space to do it.

    My friend Andrew suggested hosting something at Radio Radio, which is a fantastic idea. I don’t know what movie, but they have two big projectors/screens already and lots of seating, room, and booze. I don’t know if Tufty would be up for it, but if you had enough people sign up and (likely) buy alcohol I bet they’d do it.

  4. Radio Radio would be a great venue. I totally know what movie, and it goes up to 11, if you know what I mean.

    Keep ‘em coming, fine festival friends!

  5. “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” (the original) at a candy shop, cupcake store or bakery. Kids would love it, too!

    “Office Space” at TGIFriday’s or some corporate office.

    “Rudy”, “The Longest Yard” or “Remember the Titans” at the Colts training facility.

    It’s kind of hard to come up with both a good movie AND a good location. Strange Brew really took the cake!
