A renegade movie revolution. Norman's own impromptu theater! Another way to watch movies. Indie films, local films, Super 8, 16 mm, foreign films...the stuff that you might not see elsewhere and movies we all love.
Just to be clear - no show this weekend (Sept 27). Next show will be Oct. 18 and will be a fun and "scary" movie. More details to come.
It is official. We received the movie license for 2008 which means that in order to get our money's worth we are going to have to show a butt-load of films. I am in the process - though early in the process I must admit - of putting together the list of movies and a schedule for this season. At this point all I know is that the first show is going to be towards the end of March - and hopefully on a dry Friday or Saturday (probably Saturday) evening.
I am interested in what everyones' suggestions are for movies this season. What would you like to see on the big screen (for free)?
Speaking of the big screen...I've got some bad news. Actually, it's sort of good news bad news. But we'll start with the bad news. The bad news is that our movie screen on the side of the silos now has a metal cable tray running directly through it courtesy of a certain wireless cell phone company.

It's been some time and I've decided to re-launch the Renegade Picture Show in all its glory this August with RPS #24. Not sure what will be shown at this time or which Saturday evening it's going to be just yet so stay tuned.
I was updating the site today, clicking through the links on the links page and was pretty shocked to find that there are very few guerrilla drive-ins left in the US. I think this is a result of the pressures of the film industry's regulating body and licensing folks hard at work putting the hammer down - way to go Swank and Criterion.
"It's stealing," they say. (Do I want to get into the collective argument of copyright fair-use, right now? Kind of, but I'll sidestep for now.)
In any case, the popularity of outdoor movie showings has skyrocketed. Here in the OKC metro it seems like everyone has some sort of movie night. On the river, at the botanical gardens, at the waterpark, at the amusement park, at the community park....so …
It's getting to be that time again - Spring is on it's way (we hope) and with it will come another season of the Renegade Picture Show. As you know, we launched a new screen/venue last year and we hope to have even more shows this year.
I am working on the schedule but already have a couple of film things planned. So stay tuned....
