Rain, Rain and More Rain

Still looking for a date for the next RPS. The forecast through Friday is for heavy rains - flooding even - then on Saturday the chance of rain is 30% for the day and 20% for the evening. The good news is that they are talking about a break in the weather on Friday so Saturday may prove to be our window of opportunity. For the time being, I haven't set the date for Saturday - but that looks like our best chance. I'll keep watching the weather and if it looks like it's going to be dry, it's a go.

TONIGHT'S CANCLLED DUE TO RAIN

Tonight's showing has been cancelled due to rain and a power outage. Sorry for the news - we will reschedule.

NEXT SHOW - SATURDAY, JUNE 23

In the great tradition of true renegades of cinema, the Renegade Picture Show proudly presents the epic tale of three friends on Saturday, June 23. This movie is a classic "western" comedy. "In a way, each of us has an El Guapo to face. For some, shyness might be their El Guapo. For others, a lack of education might be their El Guapo. For us, El Guapo is a big, dangerous man who wants to kill us. But as sure as my name is Lucky Day, the people of Santa Poco can conquer their own personal El Guapo, who also happens to be *the actual* El Guapo!" ~Lucky Day Keep your fingers crossed for good weather. If the weather looks crappy we will need to reschedule. The last show was pretty much a sell-out crowd - so please be aware of who you tell or invite - I'd like for everyone to know everyone so that we can keep the community feeling. Don't forget to bring a chair and maybe even an extra chair for the people who will inevitbaly forget to bring theirs. It's much

A Great Show

We had the best turn-out yet for a Renegade Picture Show - I'm estimating over 30 people, and who knows how many cars. I hope everyone enjoyed the movie and the social atmosphere. That's what the drive-in experience is all about. Thanks to everyone who donated their hard-earned money to the show. We raised about $25 bucks so that will, of course, go into the improvement and upgrade fund. The new speakers, which were purchased using money from the previous show, worked wonderfully. The next show is planned for June 23 so mark your calendars. The title of the movie will be announced at a later date. For now, we are off to San Diego for the week. OH, we gave away stickers at the show - if you desperately want one and have to have one, donate a BUCK (or more) through the ChipIn link on the left, include your name and address and I'll gladly mail you one.

We've got sound!

A mere one day after my posting about how it would be nice to have more sound. My wonderful wife Lisa gives me a call from a pawn shop in Norman. Not the normal hang for her but apparently she took my desire for wattage to heart. She was psyched to find a great deal on two speaker towers that should pump up the volume (beware: 1980s M|A|R|R|S reference). Weather looks good for tonight - may even be a little chilly - so bring a jacket.

In the Market for Sound

We are in the market for sound. Serious. Loud. Powerful. Sound. Anything we can do to increase the viewer experience at the Renegade Picture Show. Right now I have a portable stereo that I lug out to each drive-in show. It looks puny. It is puny. I'm surprised I haven't blown a speaker yet - it's bound to happen soon. So what I want is a PA system that BUMPS. I want something that I can keep onsite and roll out of storage when we need it. Plug that sucker in to an FM tuner for audio reception and crank it up. I'm in the market for equipment that IS NOT BRAND NEW. But I want something that is worthy of big sound and can take a beating - or already has taken a beating. If it beats what I have now, which isn't much, then I'm willing to take it. If you have or know someone with such a system that would be willing to donate it - maybe in return for advertising during the show or just as a generous gesture that would be ideal. However, if you want to do it the old-

RESCHEDULED SHOW - FRIDAY, JUNE 8

Yo - let's try this again. Friday, June 8 is the next show. Keep your fingers crossed for no rain. I think right now they are saying 30% chance. That doesn't mean anything 5 days out. Hands down, a great movie. Don't miss it. I've seen it many times but still can't wait to see it again - especially on the big screen! Also.... WE'VE GOT STICKERS, FOLKS. Really kick-ass looking stickers. Show up to this week's show and I will give you one for the low low price of FREE.

JUNE 1 SHOW CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER

We've had to cancel tonight's show due to rain. It will be rescheduled for another date.
