PARKING LOT: Glendale Sears Parking Lot, 211 W. California Avenue Street, Glendale, CA 91203

HOW TO:

Make sure when you purchase your ticket(s), you do the following:

1)PURCHASE AN EARLY BIRD ($23) or DAY OF TICKET ($28) which includes the car fee and the first ticket for the driver.

2) GO TO ADD ONS: Purchase an additional $8 per person ticket for each person after the driver in the car. We will be doing a count at the gate.

As long as you have the EARLY BIRD or DAY OF ticket, you can always pay at the gate for additional people in your car.

3)PRE-ORDER ANY CONCESSIONS you would like from the additional Add-Ons. You can pick up all concessions at our table in the middle of the Parking Lot.

To attend, you need a car with an FM radio or a handheld radio you bring yourself. We will space out cars to make sure folks can safely maintain 6 feet of distance. We ask that folks stay in their cars unless they are picking up concessions or using the restroom. Whenever you are out of your car, you are required to wear a mask for everyone’s safety.

IF AT ALL POSSIBLE, PLEASE BRING A SMALL OR REGULAR SIZED CAR (sedan sized or smaller). We want to make sure EVERYONE gets a great space. SUVS, TRUCKS, CARS WITH HIGH ROOFS/RACKS/ITEMS ON ROOF often have to be parked further away from the screen to avoid sightline issues.

If you bring a larger car, arrive as near to when we open our gates as possible to get the best possible space.

Our partnership with Electric Dusk Drive In https://www.electricduskdrivein.com/) kicks off in 2021 with a mini “Winter Wonderland” January series.

Leave it to the Coen Brothers to find a way to make both one of the greatest comedies and disturbing moral thrillers of the 1990’s.

Although many folks may now know the incredible FX TV series better than the original feature, this is where it all started.

The Coen Brothers wanted to make a movie about a real life horrible event but decided instead to make one up (and still say it was based on a true story). Here sad sack car salesman Jerry Lundegaard hatches a plan to have his own wife kidnapped by two disturbingly inept criminals (played amazingly by Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) so Jerry can get his wife’s rich father to pay out money.

Sufficed to say, from this dumb plan comes disastrously dumb results. But amidst all this amoral stupidity steps in pregnant Sheriff Marge (Frances McDormand) to figure out what’s going on.

Here in FARGO, really for the first time in the Coen Brothers’ body of work, they are able to somehow fuse their two sides-the side fascinated with disturbing unresolvable moral conflicts and the humanist side that bemusedly loves humanity’s foibles. The Coens who were raised in Minnesota have a field day with the personalities, accents, behaviors of their fellow Minnesotans.

If you’re in need of snow, laughs, gasps, murder, and great filmmaking, join the Coen Brothers for FARGO.

Best always,

Craig Hammill
