Poll: Movie Night

Dear readers, thank you for your wedding first-dance song ideas for my friend Lina. If you don't mind, I have another query for your brilliant minds: Courtney from In(side) the Loop is hosting an outdoor movie night this weekend. She has the big screen, the blankets, the popcorn...the only thing she doesn't have is the movie. Any suggestions? We'd love to hear!

Sara Christine said...

You can never go wrong with The Philadelphia Story!

Ashe Mischief said...

I was really disappointed when I missed "Grease" and "American Grafitti" at our local drive-in...

Martha said...

Get "Rear Window" with Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly! Director Alfred Hitchcock's best picture!

How about To Kill a Mockingbird or Ordinary People or Juno?

amy korngiebel said...

p.s. - i love your blog. it always makes me feel good.

My first outdoor movie at Moonlight Cinema's in Sydney was The Breakfast Club. I couldn't recommend a better movie for the occasion.

recovergirl said...

16 Candles or Pretty in Pink

Amy said...

Can't go wrong with Gene Kelly - "On the Town" or "Singin' in the Rain"... Last time we watched, a friend & my spouse ended up dancing around the house together & it was big slumber party...

The new (& old) Blade Runner is always great!

Alice said...

I agree with Amelie or Annie Hall...though Manhattan is also great . The Royal Tenenbaums and Roman Holiday would also look great on a big screen :)

Joanna Goddard said...

the royal tenenbaums, genius!

Three of my favourite movies that Have worked great outdoors were
Ferris Bueller's Day off
The Blues Brothers
The Party starring Peter Sellers

Liz said...

Harold and Maude!!

Almost Famous - a great movie to watch outdoors with a really great soundtrack.

natalie blair said...

what a great idea! there is nothing better than an outdoor movie (we used to project them onto the prop wall of our university's theater building). hmm, as for the film there's 'stranger than fiction,' 'o brother, where art thou?,' and i definitely second the 'princess bride,' and 'space balls.'

Thea Orange said...

My first outdoor movie was in Baltimore in Little Italy. This bank put it on once a month in a car park and provided chairs and popcorn. It was amazing I hardly watched the film I was so busy enjoying the atmosphere. But it was Oceans 11 - the original.

In(side) the Loop said...

Oh my gosh, thank you all for your well thought out suggestions! We plan to do this a few times over the summer, but picking that first movie is proving more difficult than we though.

And so we've been screening... Last night we watched Harold & Maude, American Cowboy (definitely not an option), Once, and then Barefoot in the Park.

Spaceballs has been a backup plan for us too. Keep them coming....we're still in screening mode! I'll be sure to let everyone know which one we decide on. Thanks! xxCourtney

I think Bottle Rocket would be a great movie to watch outdoors while eating cheese and drinking wine! Also, Fried Green Tomatoes, if your in the mood for a Southern summer like I always am.

I think Il Postino/The Postman would be perfect on a warm summernight.

The Apartment with Jack Lemmon & Shirley MacLaine or Paper Moon with Ryan & Tatum O'Neal.

Lucy said...

the reason i went to dartmouth is that when i went to visit, some students were playing ferris bueller projected on a building outside at night.

Joanna Goddard said...

that is awesome, luce. ferris b would be great!

heidi said...

i came here from design for mankind... lovely blog!
First choice for movie is Cinema Oaradiso,
Second choice... Rocky Horror.
I'll be back!

Kate said...

I second Amélie! Or Casablanca (I saw it at Bryant Park this past summer and it was an amazing experience).

Or La Dolce Vita!

Kate said...

Heck yes movie twin, I was just going to suggest either The Graduate or Annie Hall.
I saw Bonnie & Clyde at an outdoor movie once and it was super awesome.

Rebel Without a Cause or To Catch a Thief!

I'm going old school...

Dazed and Confused
Before Sunrise

Yeah baby!

Jessica Rae said...

Now and Then - totally cute, wonderful, and they spy on a drive-in in the movie.

I second:
Dazed and Confused
Rear Window

For newer movies: Red Road (Suspensful and there are lulls without talking but just beautiful imagery that you can whisper to people during - but this is rated R, or maybe more. It's not porn, but it is mature.Also, because it's Irish with Irish accents, I find the subtitles helpful for some first-time viewers)
