Free Chick-fil-a and the Belcourt’s free Saturday Drive-in

12 Jul

This weekend brought two free events to me: free Chick-fil-a and a free outdoor movie at the Belcourt.

Two of my roommates were VERY excited about the free Chick-fil-a, as noted in their attire when I came home from work…

We weren’t sure which restaurant was closest to us, so we google mapped it, and it took us to 333 Commerce St. (the Batman building), which just didn’t seem right…and it wasn’t, because the doors for the building were locked by the time we got there.

All was not lost, because I knew how to get to the Chick-fil-a in Brentwood! When we got there we found many other cows, including people who were REALLY getting into it and some really cute little kids who I didn’t take pictures of, because that would be a little strange in my opinion.

Though none of us got a free combo we all got a free entree or fruit cup or whatever, mostly by means of Dan’s cow bonnet.

We had a lot of fun, and our bellies were full, so we were very satisfied. Same time next year? Yes, of course. Totally worth it.

Belcourt’s Second Saturday Drive-in: The Wrestling Women vs. The Aztec Mummy

The next night I took a friend with me and we hit up the Belcourt for a good ‘ol fashioned drive-in (only instead of sitting in cars we were sitting on a blanket and pillows in a parking lot).

We got there when it was still light outside even though the movie wasn’t even scheduled to start until sunset. I’ll tell you what, I always wondered what that big white rectangle on the side of the Belcourt was for.

Wait, you mean to tell me there's gonna be movin' pic-turrs up there?

I’m couldn’t even begin to estimate the number of people who atteneded, but it seemed like a pretty good crowd.

We were all antsy for the movie to start, so we cheered in joy when everything go started.

Yay!

Yay!

Before they started the actual movie we were shown several HILARIOUS advertisements for things like asbestos, Ayds diet candy, and a freaking crazy Levi’s ad along with previews for movies like The Crawling Hand, the Little Cigars (tagline: 5 midgets and 1 chick), and next month’s drive-in movie choice W. W. and the Dixie Dance Kings, which features some country music stars and Burt Reynolds. We were also treated to an episode of Popeye the Sailor Man and Duck Dodgers!

The movie itself was pretty awesome, I’m not gonna lie. It was a little long, but it was hilarious, especially when we finally met the Aztec Mummy (“he’s a vampire now! He’s a mummy again! He disappeared! Look, he’s a spider!”)

Even if W. W. and the Dixie Dancekings doesn’t sound appealing to you, you should go check it out on August 8th at 7:45! It’s a lot of fun and it’s free. If you really don’t think you can stomach a Burt Reynolds movie, Young Frankenstein on September 12th at 6:58! Young Frankenstein! Why wouldn’t you go?

That’s today’s scene report.
