Renegade Picture Show - New Screen Premiere - June 30th, 2012

Image
Greeting fellow Renegade Picture Show movie-goers! Saturday, June 30th, 2012 is a special day in many ways. It is the first show this season - and our 21st show over the course of 6 years running. We'll be celebrating the day and enjoying an evening of film in our BRAND NEW VENUE and on a much, much larger and even more awesome screen. The new screen is located on the opposite end of the same building where the old screen was painted. This is the third generation of painted movie screens and each one just gets bigger and better. This one all but knocks it out of the park. Coupled with an incredible grassy sitting area, this should be quite an enjoyable spot to watch a film. Someone already pointed out the imperfections of the building and how it's not entirely flat - my response is that it only adds character and is part of this style of movie-going experience where we have to make do with what surface we have to project on.

Renegade Picture Show 2012 - New Stuff

Image
Welcome back the Renegade Picture Show! We are working on several things to launch the new season. Right now we are in the process of creating a new screen. Our previous venue has changed since the relocation of I-40 so operations will now be moved to the north side of the building. The new screen will be larger than the old screen and super cool looking. With the change in venue there will also be a projection platform, a lawn (with actual grass), and an entire new feel to the space. We're looking forward to opening the season so stay tuned for the launch day. Oh - I almost forgot - we have some new promo stuff like the woodblock stamp you see here (provided by etch pop). We'll be stamping some stuff, making some postcard announcements, etc. We've also got a few stickers to share for those die-hard fans out there.
