For the last 20 years, around dusk on warm saturday summer evenings, adventurous people of all ages came bedecked with lawn chairs, rubber boats, sofas, costumes and fun attire to join in this zany Fremont pastime.
Fremont Outdoor Movies is a community-spirited big screen celebration of pop classics, cult favorites, independent film, video shorts and high camp old fashioned summer fun.
Co-founded by myself from the Fremont Market and Charlotte Buchanan from the old GlamOrama, the movies are a cross between old-time matinees, Cinema Paradiso and the vanishing All-American drive-in.
Here too, the audience is often the best part of the show. It’s the original interactive theater where people are actually encouraged to join in the atmosphere of irreverent humor and laid back good times.
