So, my friend and I were discussing this last night, and we thought it would be awesome to have a movie night in various peoples garages, watching car-related films, with beer and pizza.  Maybe do it once a month and rotate between all the garages housing projects and race cars.  A projector and sheet would give you an impromptu movie screen, and most people have a radio and speakers in their garage.  What does everybody think?  Here's the list we came up with:

Dust to Glory
Senna
Closer to the Edge
Urban Outlaw
Love the Beast
On Any Sunday
Victory by Design Series
Original Gone in 60 Seconds
Le Mans
Drive (2011)
Days of Thunder
Grand Prix (1966)

Love the idea, but... inside the garage?  Shocked
Who has enough room in their garage for people to watch a movie? 

Well Engelbert maybe.  (You do but that's because you just moved in.)

That said, you can definitely add my garage to the list.  I'll just need a
little help figuring out the logistics.  Tongue

So who has a projector to offer?

Good idea and good list!

Just move the car(s) out of the way...they don't need to watch the movie!

I'd be in for that (depending on when it happens), have both a projector and garage.  Sounds like fun.

Being inside the garage adds ambiance. And I resent the implication that the only reason I have space is cause I just moved in...I have space because my garage is enormous Wink.

I've got a projector as well.

I'll plan on setting this up within the next month or so at my place, and will let someone else carry on the torch for month 2!

Yea it does sound fun!
My garage is so small I don't have any usable wall space for a projector image! Smiley
but the vette happily rests there with no complaints.

Maybe one of these will make your garage look bigger.  Grin

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to post an update.  I am tentatively planning on July 12th (Thursday), for the first one.  Planning on showing Senna at my garage.  Was hoping to do it this month, but currently the Subaru and one of the motorcycles are in a million pieces all over the garage floor, so I wanted to finish that and get everything cleaned up first.  Please let me know how that works for everyone's schedules.  My garage is pretty close to the intersection of I95N and 295, heading towards Ashland. 

Also, I had an idea:  I'll cover the pizza, and everyone brings a six-pack of their favorite beer to share (I will only mock you slightly if this is Bud or Miller Smiley ).  Thoughts?  We did this a couple times in Ohio, and it was always entertaining getting to try 5+ different beers.

I'll be there as long as I'm not traveling for work that week.  I have some Dixie beer in my fridge and enough Sam Adams Summer varieties to cover a few people.

Sounds like all the good beers are covered already!
I can bring some soda, and maybe snag a Sam Adams while I'm there.

Two movies you may want to add to the list are "The Worlds Fastest Indian", and "The Boys of Bonneville". I have them both.

Just checking in now that we're getting close.  I got the Subaru finished and the bike put back together, and both are running and driving.  I am planning to go up there tonight to set the projector up and make sure everything works.  It also looks like the temperatures this week are going to be a bit more reasonable, which is great. 

So far I've got:

Conemasher
whiteryder
blue06civic
ricardodomoraes
90efcivic

As definite yes's, some others have expressed interest.  If you're planning on coming, could you please post up?  That way I can get a count for pizza and PM directions to people.

Thanks!  See you Thursday!

Excellent question, took the home theater apart last night and went to the garage to make sure everything worked, and at 7 things were still a little washed out on the projector from the ambient light.  By 8-8:30 things were looking good.  So I would like to plan on 8pm for people to get there, and after cracking open a beer and touring the shop, we can start the movie shortly thereafter.  Run time is 106 min, so we should finish right around 10pm.

I would love to be there, but we are out of town on vacation until Monday. Enjoy. Hope there is a sequel.

Thanks to everyone who came out!  I think it worked out really well.  You guys are welcome to come back for a beer anytime. 

I think Ricardo said he'd host the next one, otherwise I'm happy to do a repeat at my place!!!
