NOLA Drive-In Postponed


Since Cold War paranoia and the antics of Peter Sellers are best viewed when the Big Board's not sopping wet, tonight's scheduled NOLA Drive-In screening of Dr. Strangelove at the old Elysian Fields Ave. Schwegmann's has been postponed. No details have been released on the rain date, yet.

by Sean Rhoads

This Friday, Nola Drive-In brings its outdoor film screenings to the Marigny with Dr. Strangelove, or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, Stanley Kubrick's classic 1963 satire of Cold War politics. The screening location has drifted east from the roof of the abandoned Schwegmann's on Broad St. to the equally abandoned Schwegmann's parking lot near the corner of St. Claude and Elysian Fields Aves.

White (1899) and Lil’ Kim were born (1975), and when George Gershwin died (1937). So read some lit., eat a crumpet, drink a Horchata, and see some French films, which are among these offerings:
