MobMov Dedicated To Guerilla Drive-In Movies

Jul 15th, 2008 | By | Category: Video

You already know you can make your own YouTube videos, your own video podcasts and your own movies and distribute them over the Internet.

You may not know, though, that there’s a growing DIY guerilla drive-in theater movement.

According to MobMov, a site that documents this trend:

A “mobile movie” or mobmov for short, is quite simply a drive-in that drives-in. Participating in a mobmov is very similar to attending a drive-in from the days of old, except now the projector is located inside and powered by a car, and the audio is piped in stereo over the FM band to the attendees’ cars.

As a mobmov driver, you assemble the kit, decide on the movies, and announce your showings to friends and the community at large. Then everyone assembles in a dark place with a big wall, and you watch a movie. It’s a new technological twist to a nostalgic idea.

The site details the gear you need to set up a guerilla drive-inn theater, and offers tips for avoiding problems with police and lawyers.

Filmmakers can also apply to have their films played at participating mobile theaters!
