The ’80s film, The Lost Boys will be featured as part of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema’s Rolling Roadshow. The roadshow takes a large projection truck and travels across country showing classic movies and cult favorites in cool locales that usually have some connection to the film itself.
For instance, The Lost Boys will be shown on Wednesday, July 25th at 8:45 p.m. on the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk as a part of the boardwalk’s 100th anniversary. Several of the scenes from The Lost Boys were filmed on the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
But the roadshow is more than just a screening of the film. Each showing includes lots of extras for the die hard fans from original movie trailers to movie-specific trivia and games to a chance to meet some of the film’s stars. Currently the roadshow is in talks with Corey Haim and Corey Feldman to be on hand for the screening of The Lost Boys.
The Rolling Roadshow is free. However, each showing offers special VIP passes for a mere $30. These passes include special reserved seating, a limited edition event poster, and an invitation to the After Party sponsered by Dewars.

Too bad we couldn’t get the Rolling Roadshow out to Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia for the 20th anniversary of Dirty Dancing. Now, I have to figure out how to get my husband to head to Santa Cruz at the end of July. Hmm . . .
