REPO MAN ROAD RALLY IN LOS ANGELES, CA
Theater: The Rolling Roadshow


Film:
Repo Man

Date:
Saturday, August 27
3PM RALLY
8PM SCREENING

Location:
Secured and fenced yard
East 3rd Street and Santa Fe Street
Los Angeles, CA



NOTE: THERE HAS BEEN A DATE CHANGE, THE REPO MAN ROAD RALLY IS NOW ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 27. ORIGINAL DATE WAS FRIDAY, AUGUST 26

Event Details: Set in the seedy underbelly of the 80's punk rock scene, REPO MAN was a major influence on nearly every modern indie director.

For our screening, attendees will first scour the city looking for the movie's cornerstone prop: an actual '64 Malibu. The person who manages to drive it to the screening location wins the Rally and gets to keep the car! Tickets are also available for the screening only, without the road rally.



Members of the cast and crew - including DIRECTOR ALEX COX, SY RICHARDSON, DEL ZAMORA, TRACEY WALTER, DICK RUDE and BIFF YEAGER - will conduct a Q&A following the screening.

We are still securing addditional cast/crew members. More details on cast and crew when they become available

IMPORTANT: SEATING IS NOT PROVIDED AT ROLLING ROADSHOW EVENTS! YOU MUST BRING YOUR OWN FOLDING CHAIR OR BLANKET! At the Repo Man screening, however, you can either bring your own lawnchairs, or, you can sit in your car and watch the movie drive-in style. We'll have an FM transmitter hooked up for you to listen in on your car stereo!

We will have FOOD, DRINK and BEER available at the screening. No outside beverages are allowed at the site.

Here's how the road rally works.
Teams will meet at a the screening area (East 3rd and Santa Fe) in Los Angeles at 3:00 PM, night of the show. Here, you will receive a CD and a set of clues. At the drop of the checkered flag, teams will run to their cars, Le Mans style, and open the first clue. The clues and the CD will guide you across the city, past many of the shooting locations of the film, in search of the 1964 Malibu. The person who manages to drive it to the screening location wins the Rally and gets to keep the car!

What you will need for the road rally:
A map of LA
Yellow pages for central Los Angeles
A digital camera
paper and pencils
drivers licenses from everyone on the team
a cell phone
and a few dollars

The rally should take you approximately 3 hours to complete. The screening will begin at 8:15 PM.

If you have any questions on the rally, please contact the road rally coordinator

Here is some information on past Road Rallies we have put on at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema:

2004 Harold and Kumar Road Rally
2003 Smokey and the Bandit Road Rally
2004 Death Race 2000 Road Rally

A note about security and the LA screening: The area where Repo Man was shot is the warehouse district near LA river, between the 1st and 6th street bridges. The road rally and the screening will be in this area. We have rented the fenced, secured lot at the corner of 3rd and Santa Fe (see map above). Security patrolled parking will be provided within the contained, fenced yard. No one other than Rolling Roadshow staff and attendees of the event will be allowed in for the duration of Saturday, August 27. You will not have to park your car in an unmonitored area and walk to the screening. In fact, we are setting up an area for cars to tune into our FM transmitter, if you want to watch the film drive-in style!

A note about driving in Los Angeles: We realize that driving a road rally in Los Angeles could get bogged down by traffic. For this reason, we have confined the road rally to the area bounded by the 110 to the west, I-5 to the east, North Main Street to the north and I-10 to the south. You will not have to drive on any freeway at any time, and the surface streets on the weekend, in the areas in which we are driving, are expected to be free of any traffic.

Tickets are also available for the screening only. Tickets to the Road Rally include admission to the screening at 8:15 PM

Tickets to the movie only are $14 in advance, $18 day of show. Check out the other screenings in the Rolling Roadshow Tour 2005, including the Bullitt Road Rally in San Francisco!

Specials: 2005 Rolling Roadshow Tour Pass - This pass gets you admission to all of the screenings on the Roadshow Tour, as well as entry for a team in the Bullitt and Repo Man road rally events. This ticket does not include any lodging, meals (other than mashed potatoes at Close Encounters and a Baby Ruth at Goonies) or transportation.
