rethinking the space

and there is a temporary alteration of car park to entertainment base, a definite hybrid

I know there is a difference in scale, but I am still a little disappointed that this site was not able to host a car or two for the CAR ART PARK project

Currently, this is one of the venues for the Oxford Photography show, and highlighting on film. There was not enough time this week for me to experience this drive-in cinema. Shame really as the experience would fit very well with my project. Your car, your cinema.

But what is the cinema experience like? What about with a car full or is it only really workable for those in the front seats?

How does drive in cinema rank for film going experience? Or is the film really not the thing?

I have a vague memory of going to a drive-in a long, long while ago … just do not remember for certain. Was it in America or possibly, might have been Australia?? But nothing beyond that fuzzy memory. The confusion is compounded as even that hazy image is caught up in the memory of seeing films and TV programs where scenes are set in drive-ins.  But I have never had a bouncy ponytail. Makes the reality of that visit even more less likely – possibly?
