Netflix Takes Shows on the Road...
We heard last week that Netflix was setting up a summer travelling roadshow. Now the details: Netflix is showing classic American movies around the country at locations the films made famous.
On tap are some very cool locations. They're screening Jaws at State Beach on Martha's Vineyard; Clerks at The Quick Stop in Leonardo, NJ; Field of Dreams in the field in Iowa; and Escape from Alcatraz on Alcatraz Island -- to name a few. On August 24, the show comes to Long Beach when the Queen Mary hosts The Poseidon Adventure.
But we're thinking that Netflix has missed some other opportunities in the LA area. Lke how about screening Grease at the LA River? Or what about Boyz n the Hood in South Central? L.A. Confidential at Parker Center?
What other LA locations would you like to see Netflix hit?
