Pimp My Ride: Utility Van

“Everything I learned I learned from the movies.”
―Audrey Hepburn

There is a certain ceremony in movie watching--a mix of excitement, nostalgia, cozy, community--and popcorn. And each movie watching scenario carries with it it's own protocol: whether it be in a living room, a theatre or a drive-in. For this Pimp My Ride edition, we decided to make our own drive-in movie theatre--in our own backyard!

Take any reason to make an event out of the simplest of pleasures. Pack some comfortable chairs, warm blankets, heaps of buttery popcorn, cocoa with mallows, and a projector with screen into your van and buckle your seatbelt. Pick a locale with a lot of atmosphere and stillness. Unpack, and press play.

“A good movie can take you out of your dull funk and the hopelessness that so often goes with slipping into a theatre; a good movie can make you feel alive again, in contact, not just lost in another city. Good movies make you care, make you believe in possibilities again.”

―Pauline Kael
