About: Street Food Cinema, the ultimate movie experience evolves into an unforgettable camping experience right in the middle of the Santa Monica Mountains, just above Malibu. This summer night retreat brings to life the classic elements of everyone’s beloved favorite with Kellerman’s summer resort including dance lessons with Johnny Castle, karaoke, and watermelons. It’s the summer of 1963 for Baby and Johnny, but we met them in the 80’s, so get ready for a 60’s/80’s decade mashup during this themed overnight experience (Sunday breakfast included).

If you have Time Warner Cable or Dish you can celebrate Memorial Day with an old friend .. well is Godzilla really a friend? I remember watching these movies back in the dark ages of my childhood where I always rooted for Zilla. She (I mean didn’t in one movie she have an egg??? and a cute baby in a few of the old movies) was the innocent creature who man encroached on her territory so she had to defend it by destroying Japan! tee hee Hmm does that make me a radical environmentalist? I hope not since I really enjoy makeup, bathing, hair products and shoes! bwa ha ha So if you’re planning on staying home grab some popcorn, candy, friends and family for the ultimate marathon leading up to the release of the new remake of Godzilla (who definitely is not friendly). It’s the Epix Drive-In “MEMROARIAL DAY GODZILLA-THON” starting at 6am on Monday, May 26th. Really can you call yourself a true geek if you’ve never seen these movies? Better still grab the kids for some relatively G rated horror (compared to what we have nowadays) to get them into the monstor movie genre where the monstors are people in really bad costumes! I LOVED Mothra when I was a kid so might cosplaying some classic movie magic at SDCC. Well I’ll rock a tshirt! It’s hard rocking around in SDCC crowds in costume the lack of vision is an accident waiting to happen and well I like getting into the bathroom with no fuss!
