  1. The worst movie I ever saw at the drive-in was the Mel Gibson version of Maverick. I don’t think any amount of fresh air could save that movie. But interestingly enough when the City of Chicago did their movies in the park they showed some pretty talky, serious dramas, The Hustler, Sweet Smell of Success among them. They played really well outside.

    In showing movies outside in the yard, I’ve found that older movies fair better, especially if they are shorter. We showed Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation, which I thought would be a perfect outside movie, and people just seemed antsy. So its always a gamble when programing an outside movie.

    I’ve also found that with bringing movies outside b/w movies tend to project better with light distractions.
