After a mid-winter hiatus, Blue Starlite Mini-Urban Drive-In III, located at Austin Studios, 1901 East 51st Street, returns tonight, Friday February 8th, to kick off their Valentine's Week program with a stellar John Cusack double feature: Cameron Crowe's 1989 teenage rom-com "Say Anything..." and 1997's satirical shoot-'em-up "Grosse Point Blank."
For the uninitiated, the Blue Starlite is the one and only Mini-Urban Drive-In, "bringing the Drive-in Movie experience into the modern age by bringing the Drive-in closer to where all the people are now, in the city," according to its mission statement. "We are not located in a giant field with 300 car spots. We are right in the middle of the city and have created a very intimate and personal drive-in movie watching experience."
