John Young is a prolific inventor. You may have heard of some of his past triumphs, like the Retropod, a Sony Walkman casing for the iPod; or the Ultimate Water Gun, a powerful water cannon that sits atop your noggin. But it’s his recent work that really has us most interested — a project called the Guerilla Drive-In.
Similar in nature to MobMov (which we covered here), the Guerilla Drive-In is about spur-of-the-moment outdoor screenings using a 16mm projector and an AM broadcasting rig that Young’s built into the sidecar his 1977 BMW motorcycle. He’s planning to screen each film in an ‘appropriate location’ — think Caddyshack on the links and Repo Man at junkyard. And the cherry on top: the actual locations of the showings won’t be published on the website. In order to get to one of these Guerilla Drive-Ins, you’re going to have to do some sleuth work!
