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.
NOLA Drive-In's Outdoor Schwegmann's Screenings Move to Marigny
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.
