Is Orange County getting its own drive-in movie theater?! That's what it looks like, at least if Dead Ringers Ride and Drive-In gets enough support to open its gates this fall!
With Dead Ringers Ride and Drive-In, founders Amy Hood, Lindsey Bro and Jennifer Hood want to create a monthly event that features classic cult films, food trucks and concession stands, live bands, carnival rides and a fun, retro atmosphere, all tucked away in the scenic foothills of Orange County.
Just check out the description from their website:
Dead Ringers Ride and Drive-In will be a monthly drive-in movie theater in Orange County, CA. Founded by local Orange Countians Amy Hood, Lindsey Bro and Jennifer Hood, Dead Ringers will feature cult classic and classic films, delicious fare from local food trucks, movie snacks, beverages, and beer. Pre-show festivities will include live music from epic local bands, carnival rides, classic cars and motorcycles from the Hubcat Originals, and a Dead Ringers photo booth.Tickets are on sale now for the grand opening, where they will be showing the classic The Lost Boys! How cool is that?!
Dead Ringers Ride and Drive-In will be set against the backdrop of ruggedly beautiful Santiago Canyon on the grounds of Oak Canyon Ranch. Located in Orange County just off the 5, the 241, or 261, it’s close enough to be convenient while still feeling miles away from the fast paced hubbub of Orange County. Think 1950s cinema escapism with a modern twist.
While watching the feature film on our 4 story-high movie screen, you can steal glances of the eerie moon looming over Irvine Lake, count the twinkling stars above, watch cooing lovers floating in love boats on the miniature fishing lake, hear the distant growl of motorcycles winding around the canyon roads to the ranch, or listen to the faint laughter from the ferris wheel. Before settling down to the feature, stroll over to the concessions area and grab a bite from one of the four featured food trucks. While you’re at it grab an ice cold beer or Coca-cola and catch a live set from our lineup of killer local bands. On the way back to your ride, impress your date by talking shop with the moto enthusiasts lined up with their classic cars and bikes. Then turn on the engine, tune into our FM transmitted station, and drop out into the pre show retro playlist and subsequent cult classic reel.
They need your help to make this happen, though! They need to sell at least 1/2 their tickets to show there is real interest in this project, so please visit their website and their Indiegogo to pre-purchase tickets for the event! There are even some extra goodies for people that pitch in extra!
