For the last 20 years, around dusk on warm saturday summer evenings, adventurous people of all ages came bedecked with lawn chairs, rubber boats, sofas, costumes and fun attire to join in this zany Fremont pastime. Fremont Outdoor Movies is a community-spirited big screen celebration of pop classics, cult favorites, independent film, video shorts and high camp old fashioned summer fun. Co-founded by myself from the Fremont Market and Charlotte Buchanan from the old GlamOrama, the movies are a cross between old-time matinees, Cinema Paradiso and the vanishing All-American drive-in.

Here too, the audience is often the best part of the show. It’s the original interactive theater where people are actually encouraged to join in the atmosphere of irreverent humor and laid back good times.
This year's line-up is packed with some of greatest movies of all-time from blockbusters, comedies, cut classics and special events like the 4th annual Red, White & Dead Zombie, Bottle Shocked and The Dude Fest: The Big Lebowski Movie party.
We exported our slapstick brand of the Outdoor Cinema to Berkeley, Burning Man, Boulder Colorado, and back to Hollywood, and as the technology went digital, many more outdoor movies have followed in our footsteps, because this is the way summer movies were meant to be enjoyed.
Thanks to all the people who have helped over the years: producers Andrew McMasters of Jet City Improv, and Ryan Reiter of Piranha Blonde for keeping the tradition alive and vibrant.
