Empire Drive-In - New York Hall of Science
Add to Calendar 04-10-2013 20-10-2013 15 Empire Drive-In Experience a new kind of drive-in movie theater. Climb in and out of cars reclaimed from local junkyards as you watch a live show or film projected on a big screen. Car not required. Installation is open daily. Live show/movies showing October 4 – 6, 10 – 13 & 16 – 20, 2013 with a nightly slide show by Stephen Mallon. Empire Drive-In is a large-scale multimedia installation and full-scale outdoor theater made of reclaimed and recycled materials: a 40-foot screen and concession stand; seating in cars sourced from local junkyards; and low-power radio sound in each vehicle. The project debuted at the 01SJ Biennial in San Jose, Calif. in 2010. NYSCI presents the New York debut of Empire Drive-In in collaboration with artists Todd Chandler and Jeff Stark, who will construct the massive installation in NYSCI's parking lot as a vehicle for community engagement and homage to a special and lost platform that reflects on car culture, technological obsolescence, creative reuse, and sensory-based nostalgia. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Audience members are invited to sit inside or on top of any of the 60 different cars and trucks that are part of the installation. A small number of lawn chairs will also be provided.
