2019 Time Warp Drive-In Movies Schedule
Need one more reason that Memphis is badass? The Time Warp Drive-In.
Not only does Memphis still having a thriving drive-in movie theater, the Malco Summer Drive-In, we also have a monthly all-night movie marathon with cult classics, horror, and all kinds of crazy film. There’s a different theme every month – think all the Back To The Future Movies, all your John Hughes 80s faves, or weird (and I mean WEIRD) art house animation.
The Time Warp Drive-In is one of my favorite things to do in town. It’s completely unique and very Memphis. Shoutout to Black Lodge Video and Guerilla Monster Films for curating the movie nights and Malco for letting it happen.
More things to know:
- It’s $10 per person, which includes all the movies for each night.
- It starts at sundown and goes until whenever the movies are done.
- Local artist Holtermonster makes awesome posters for the movie nights.
- Parents need to look up the movies and decide if they want to bring their kids or not.
Starting out in grindhouse flicks and blaxploitation cinema of the 1970’s, she quickly rose to national fame, working with legendary directors John Carpenter, Tim Burton, Larry Cohen, and actor/director Tom Hanks. Perhaps her finest hour came in 1997, when cult director Quentin Tarantino wrote the blaxploitation-homage film JACKIE BROWN specifically for her – many consider it his best film to date, and it was a critical and popular smash.
Now, as director Spike Lee is preparing to do a bio film on her life, let’s go back and visit her finest work. Start the night with Tarantino’s JACKIE BROWN, then return to 1973 and see her breakout hit, the brilliant revenge flick COFFY…
