Would people like an outdoor film showing in the Play Street? It would have to be on a date and time when it’s dark enough early enough, but on the other hand not too cold. On Saturday May 9th sunset is predicted to be at 20.34. The film could start half an hour later.
There’d be no noise from the film, because we could all have our own wireless headphones. Or we could have a silent film. There’d be a tiny amount of noise from the eight or ten bicycles providing the power. We’d need volunteers to take turns on the bicycles. And we’d bring our own chairs.
If so, what film? Not too long. Suitable for any children who might be there. We could go for films you can’t get hold of easily, or we could concentrate on crowd-pleasers-for-all. Or preferably both, if possible. Here below are some suggestions made by people of various ages, from 21 to 69. We haven’t vetted the list to see if they meet the criteria above. Any film we chose would have to meet them.
The Big Lebowski; The Sting; Dodgeball; Anchorman; The Fugitive; Con Air; Hobson’s Choice; The Longest Day; Enemy of the State; North by Northwest; Les Enfants du Paradis, Last Year at Marienbad, An Officer and a Gentleman; The Big Easy; Return of the Pink Panther; The Pursuit of Happiness; Three Men and a Baby; Clue; Being John Malkovich; Cabaret; Jerry Maguire; Breakfast at Tiffany’s; Some Like it Hot; Gentlemen Prefer Blondes; The Seven Year Itch; Oceans 11; Gladiator; Amélie; Plains, Trains and Automobiles; Gravity; The French Connection; Enigma; Trading Places; It’s a Wonderful Life; Liar Liar; The Truman Show; Ace Ventura: Pet Detective; Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls; Aviator; Once Upon a Time in the West; O Brother, Where Art Thou?; Dirty Rotten Scoundrels; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly; Wall Street; Casablanca; A Royal Affair; The Great Gatsby; Bubba Ho-Tep; Blow-Up; The Royal Tenenbaums; Raiders of the Lost Ark; Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom; Bringing Up Baby; Diary of an Unknown Woman; Moby Dick; or anything by Wes Anderson.
