    Yes... Was hoping for a movie for each event, the 4 movies at the drive in are getting boring. So sad -- and bored.

    You will have one some Valentine's Day - there is someone for everyone.

    I agree that we could use a few more movies for the drive in, I'd like to see a 4hr, an 8hr and maybe even a 12hr one as well.

    Since most movies are not more than 3 hours long, I think that's why the Drive-In Theater's tasks are so short. However I remember a Simpsons Episode where they are watching a TV movie, on Moses I believe, that went from before the kids bed times to right before they went to school. So approximately 8-10 hours. That would be a nice addition.

    You could always build your own theater screen allowing you to have control of what is shown. I've built my own and I'm currently showing back to back airings of the sci-fi classic "Don't Mind Us" featuring Kodos and Kang.

    Before, I was airing a romantic comedy/horror called "You'll Do Just Nicely" featuring the deer and Super Nintendo Chalmers.

    ^^^Those are really neat Barry. I'm envious because there is no way I would have enough land to do something that cool.

    Or maybe Mo's Big Day Out. It would require the Limo and Respectable Mo though

    Thank you! The screenplay is just getting finished up on that and the Judge is in rehearsal as we speak :D

    Excellent idea! My very first screening was Mel firing out of the cannon, but it required constant resetting because of its short timer.

    "You'll Do Just Nicely" Saw it. It was a laugh riot. ;)

    That's pretty fantastic - I could clear some land but I'm not so clever with designing.

    Thank you. If you ever decide to build it, I'd be happy to help in any way possible. I snapped this photo to show the directions of the fencing (I originally used the brown fencing) and how to hide the concrete. This helps to create the illusion of the contrast of grass to concrete. I started with the fence line in the rear first, but noticed many of the fence sections had to be turned a specific way to blend the shrubbery, grass and concrete. I intentionally did not resize this photo as to show the fence directions better (as seen in the shading).

    Barryriddl - thank you - it is interesting to see through the fences, I will try a smaller scale 3-D first. I'll mark this thread so I can come back to it to study.

    No problem. It may be difficult to tell at first glance, but I had to alter the size of the screen (made it larger) to accommodate the aliens, because of the vertical size. I think you'll have fun with it, especially since you can customize the screen. I find it best to include a stationary character and be careful to not "overdo" it with too much going on.
