"Meatballs" at Northbook Canoe Company

Long-exposure photo taken last night by Harold Ross at the Guerilla Drive-In. We showed snobs-versus-slobs summer-camp movie "Meatballs" at local snobs-versus-slobs canoe-rental venue Northbrook Canoe Company.

 

Ezekiel C. "Zeke" Hubbard, who runs Northbrook, IS Tripper Harrison, about thirty years older. Listen: Northbrook was started in 1977, Meatballs (a movie about camp North Star) was released in 1979 -- hey, you do the math. Ivan Reitman _was_ on the east coast at about that time...

 

Anyhow, since it was showering a little bit, we showed the movie in the canoe barn, hanging a seventies polyester curtain on the mostly-closed rolling door. The rain on the corrugated tin roof was really nice.

 

You can see the sidecar-mounted Commando Projector, and about forty(?) folks in attendance. Hard to tell; it was dark.

 

My friend and neighbor Harold Ross took the photo. Thanks, Harold, I think this looks awesome! Click on his name to see more of his stuff.
