What could be better than going to see a movie in a theater? What about going to see a movie in a totally unexpected place, like a ballpark, a bowling alley, a newspaper press room, or a catacomb deep under the city?

We created our Roving Cinema series to take films outside the four walls of a theater. Sure, as movie nerds, we all love the theater experience, but we also welcome the chance to appreciate some of our favorite films in cool places. In the process, we can crack open a cold beer, catch up with an old friend, and maybe even visit some place we’ve never been.

OUR NEXT ROVING CINEMA:

Welcome to Camp Crystal Lake

On Friday, October 13, we’ll be turning the wooded shoreline of the IMA’s 35-acre lake into our own “Camp Crystal Lake” outdoor theater for a horrifying double feature of the American slasher franchise, Friday the 13th, Parts 1 and 2.
We have limited space and expect this to sell out so buy your tickets in advance so you don’t miss out! Both films are Rated R. Seating WILL NOT be provided so this is a BYOCC (Bring Your Own Camping Chair) event. Food and beverage will be available for purchase onsite. Parking is limited, so park in the main Newfields lot and take a shuttle to Fairbanks Park. Please no knives, candles taller than 16”, outside alcohol or masks (leave that to Jason on the big screen). Bag check will occur before admittance.
We will be offering a commemorative pint glass to immortalize this horrifically monumental screening. 100 specialty tickets will be sold with the pint glass included. We will also have a very limited supply on site on sale, first come first serve.
6:30pm: “Camp Crystal Lake” Check-in and seating begins.
7:30pm: Screening begins.
