RPS 20 Show Report - Reel Rock Film Tour 2011

Last Saturday we hosted the 2011 Reel Rock Film Tour as our 20th Renegade Picture Show. Backwoods sponsored the event - which was really cool of them. It was held at Rocktown on the back of the building where there is a large white screen painted - same place that many other RPSs have been shown. In addition to the film there was a band before the show. This gave me the opportunity to have to build a stage. The band, Sanburke (I think they were called) did a great job. We had a sizable turnout for the show - not sure how many people but I would estimate it was on the order of 60-75. The weather was beautiful, the films were stellar, and overall it appeared that audience really enjoyed the experience. As far as the technical stuff, the sound was superb, the projector (the same one I've used for 5 years running) continues to beam big and bright without a hiccup, and the playing of the show was smooth. For future plans, I'm working on trying to pull-off some sort of Hal…

Renegade Picture Show - 2011 Season

It's July here in Oklahoma and we are already in the midst of a major heatwave with no sign of relief. With highs in the low hundreds and nighttime lows sill in the 80s, it's difficult to get psyched about sitting outside in the sweltering heat at 10 pm and enjoying anything. I say this only because I'm a little frustrated we missed the very small window of "mild" weather in March that would have been the beginning of this 2011 RPS season. And now here we are, in summer. I would liked to have said that we've already hosted four or five shows in this, our fifth season for the Renegade Picture Show, but its not so.

At this point the best we can hope for is a slight cool-down that will allow us to host a major showing.

The one good thing is that we still have plenty of time. And summer can't last forever - can it?
