I know we talked about an Eastern Iowa theater gathering and I was willing to host. I just had a graduation party for one of my undergraduate lab assistants, and also graduated a PhD student, so suddenly, my plate becomes much more clear. I need to build a riser for my back row seats (and by seats, I mean a spare couch), but could host 3-5 people between now and maybe mid July. We could do a Saturday event, with some beers on the deck between movies, or a Sunday afternoon matinee.
Here is what I would propose, assuming we have enough interest...everyone bring:
1. There all time favorite BR/movie
2. one unusual/more obscure movie that has a great soundtrack
if some one had some great multichannel mix (Clear throat, Pink Floyd) we could have a little music before and between movies as well.
I have RAGBRAI (I drive a bus for a RAGBRAI team) in mid/late July and then a family vacation in August, and then the fall Hawkeye football season starts, so if I am hosting, it needs to be in the next couple months.
