 creature from the black lagoon and rocket cinema!
just got back from a vacation in amsterdam.

had a great time. one of the best things we did there was this...
http://rocketcinema.nl/english/

on the first day there my wife spotted a poster for the creature of the black lagoon with an updated dj soundtrack. sounded like fun so we went.

it was shown outside under a cool domed tent. before the movie they showed a collection of car/boat chases from movies filmed in amsterdam while the dj played some wacky chase tunes.

then creature from the black lagoon came on. what they did was strip out most of the music (they actually left bits and pieces of the original in) and added new music. it was inventive and fun. during the scene where the creature first spotted julie adams the dj played this strange song with the chorus underwater love.

the crowd was great. everyone crashed out under pillows or sat on plastic beer crates with pillows on them. they had beer, wine, and popcorn. it felt like the coolest drive in i've ever been to.

after the movie they had a tiny car that you could sit in and watch a short movie. the front window of the car was replaced with a tv screen. the movie was all in dutch but had only a little dialogue and was easy to follow and the flick was actually quite fun as it turned out to be a neat little horror movie.

great times. i wish someone would do this around here.

Glad you had a great time; sounds like alot of fun! I wanted to see what it looked like and found small clips on youtube

Watching JAWS while relaxing or playing around in a pool! How cool is that?

wish they were doing that while i was there!

thanks so much for posting that.

the night we left they were showing the movie "amsterdamned" which has a lot of boat chases in amsterdam and they were showing it on a boat going up and down the canals! i would have loved to have seen that.

i forgot to mention another great thing about this event. all the audio was on wireless headsets!

they gave each audience member a high quality wireless headset to use. of course you had to put a deposit down and return it but it was great to be able to control the volume levels yourself.
