It's already been said before, and probably will be again.
But I just gotta say this looks like it's going to be an amazing event. I just might need to bring the Suburban, and a blow up Matress, to take naps periodically thru the day. As this will be a
looooong killer fun day.

TIKI-INVASION UPDATES:

STAGE: We are very excited to announce that the "decoration/transformation" of our stage and VIP area will be designed, built and installed by THE CULT OF THE EYE. Also be sure to visit their Fez-O-Rama booth when browsing through our vendor area!

TICKETS: tickets are now available online at Ticket Alternative -
www.ticketalternative.com General admission is $20. VIP admission is $30, which includes preferred movie parking, a souvenir Hawaiian lei and a refillable Tiki "brew" cup.

There has been one more tweak to the Tiki-Invasion movie lineup folks... After talking to the studio, it turns out the last remaining print of what was to be our 2nd feature "The Creeping Flesh" is most likely a bit too faded and "pink" for our tastes.

So, we're going to go with a tried and true "B" movie classic, "BUG", from 1975, starring Bradford Dillman and Joanna Miles. This is a great print and will look spectacular projected through the Mission-Tiki's state of the art Technalight Projection System. We screened this film at our Starlight Drive-In (Atlanta) back in 2005 and I can tell you the print was fabulous and there were an equal amount of screams and laughs from the audience. BUG is a perfect Drive-In movie.

From IMDB, the BUG plot:
"An earthquake releases a strain of mutant cockroaches with the ability to start fires, which proceed to cause destructive chaos in a small California town. The studies carried out by scientist James Parmiter, however, reveal an intent with much more far-reaching consequences."

And a reviewers comment:
"This movie really is scary. The story is about cockroaches that when they rub their legs together sparks flame and kill it's prey. Bradford Dillman is great and has an interesting set."

BUG Trivia: "The set used for the Parmiter home, where Joanna Miles's character has her head set ablaze by a "bug" on the phone receiver, was the same Studio City, California, set used as the Brady home in ABC-TV's "The Brady Bunch" (1969). Due to very poor ratings, the BB series had been cancelled in 1974, a few months before filming BUG began. Since BUG's release in 1975, "The Brady Bunch" became a ubiquitous hit in syndication, and the set has become easily recognizable to several generations of classic TV watchers."

There you have it, the middle feature of three for our Saturday, August 5th event. First film is "Cobra Woman", from 1944.

From IMDB, Cobra Woman Plot:
"Upon discovering his fiancée Tollea has been kidnapped, Ramu and his friend Kado set out for a Pacific isle where all strangers are to be killed on arrival and the inhabitants, who are frequently sacrificed to an angry volcano god, worship the cobra. The island is ruled over by Tollea's evil twin Naja, the Cobra Woman, who, besides having designs on her new prisoner Ramu, also desires to eliminate any competition from her benevolent sister."

Cobra Woman review:
"Must be seen to be believed. This is a classic! The cobra dance will have you on the floor, guaranteed. Note that the deus ex machina is a chimpanzee. Fabulous performance by Maria Montez as good and evil twins with able support from Sabu, John Hall, and the old lady who plays Maria's grandmother. "Joo meen, Joo arre my grandmother?!" Favorite moments: Bad twin's procession to the bathing site, all scenes with Sabu, "the Fire Death Hymn". But NOTHING can top the cobra dance. And you'll love the headwear. Don't miss it!"

3rd film is "Hard Ticket to Hawaii". Written and directed by Andy Sidaris, and produced by Arlene Sidaris, who will be our special guests at Tiki-Invasion.

Hard Ticket Plot:
Two drug enforcement agents are killed on a private Hawaiian island. Donna and Taryn, two operatives for The Agency, accidentally intercept a delivery of diamonds intended for drug lord Seth Romero, who takes exception and tries to get them back. Soon other Agency operatives get involved, and a full-scale fight to the finish ensues, complicated here and there by an escaped snake made deadly by Toxic Waste!

Hard Ticket review:
"Unless I'm mistaken, Hard Ticket to Hawaii marks the first of many pairings of Dona Speir and Andy Sidaris - an actor-director combo sure to be remembered alongside De Niro-Scorsese and Lemmon-Wilder.

Anyway, Dona's job here is to run around with the adorable Hope Marie Carlton as DEA agents investigating... oh, who cares. No one's watching this thing for story, and why the hell does Sidaris feel the need to make his plots so dang convoluted? Great Scott man, if we want complex writing we'll watch Chinatown.

So Dona and Hope Marie get naked often, which is very good, and when they're not nude they have the courtesy to at least wear flattering and revealing outfits. The movie also includes some nice travelogue stuff in and around Hawaii, and one extremely fake-looking venomous snake. There's also the return of the drag queen from Malibu Express, but that's actually OK because in one of his scenes ex-Playmate Patty Duffek flaunts the all-natural attributes that got her in Hef's magazine in the first place. So no major complaints on this end."

Memorable quote: "I always do my best thinking in the hot tub."

You can see we have a beautiful, campy and fun evening of movies ahead! Remember, tickets now available at www.ticketalternative.com See you there!

That's funny Dean, allthough sometimes I wish I was 8 ft tall.
6' 3" is just fine thanks.

And I know this is a bit of a no no to cross promote, get off topic.
But I think in this case it might be understood why.
For anyone that might be coming from far away, and want to hit the
Beach the next Day. Or for those So. Cal. locals that don't know.

The Next Afternoon. the Huntington Beach Internationl Surfing Museum
will be presenting 5 Surf bands right by the Pier,from 11 am to 5 pm.
they include:
The Fabulous Nomads
CHUM
Pollo Del Mar
Slacktone,
and
Outterwave

so if your not too heat stroke or drunk from the Tiki Drive IN event.
come on down and check it out. It's free, and lots of fun.
Bring a chair or blanket if you wanna sit on the grass.

So, who's bringing a classic car? I'm going to feel like a dork with my rental car at the drive-in. Maybe I'll just park it in back and walk around.

well I could drive my 71 Dodge Polara, not classic but kinda a muscle car era enrty( But Ran would disagree)that's why I said Kinda.

Or I could push my Dad's 57 chevy pick up truck to sit in the back
of during the movies. I'd have to push or tow it cause it doesn't have an engine as of yet.

Dean, there are places that rent classic cars. But most are probably by the beach or in Beverly Hills area.

No worries on what you're driving to the show... It's not the car, it's what going on INSIDE that matters. Besides, you can always pimp your plain vanilla rental ride out with Tiki swag for some immediate street cred. Or just go for it and maybe rent a convertible, LOL

Glad to see so many of you are excited about the show! We are too! I've recently been putting the vintage trailer/cartoon/snack bar snippet program together... it's going to be WILD. All of our movie trailers and cartoons are the real vintage deal, no reproductions or digital (dvd) copies. Some of the snack bar and theater snippets are repros, just because so many of the originals got worn out by being played night after night. But we have an outstanding trailer show planned for you Tiki-Invaders.

I've been asked a few similar questions about the event, so I'll post the info here.

What to bring. Here are the necessities: Folding lawn chairs (or similar), a boom box radio with fresh batteries (for the movie sound), hats, sunscreen, some extra clothes (the chill zone misting booth can leave you a bit soggy by the end of the day, and fresh, dry clothes feel great after a day in the sun) and a light weight jacket because it can cool down pretty good at night during the movies.

BBQ's are permitted, just please use extreme care when you are cooking or disposing of the hot coals. Extinguish them with water or let them die out completely.

Bicycles, unicycles, roller skates and skateboards are permitted when operated in a safe and courteous manner.

Restrictions include glass bottles, pets and fireworks. We don't need folks who are wearing flip-flops stepping on something nasty or dangerous like broken glass or dog doo. And we certainly don't need somebody getting hurt (or thier vintage car damaged) by a malfunctioning roman candle or wayward skyrocket. Thanks!

I thought I'd be able to bring the 67 Dodge a-100 van, but I think it won't be ready by then.
So Hyundai it is.
Looking forward to it.
