'PHANTOM' & 'SCARFACE' TO SCREEN AT MIAMI DRIVE-IN, NOV & DEC, RESPECTIVELY
Brian De Palma's Phantom Of The Paradise will be the first film to be screened by Miami's new Secret Celluloid Society. The society's screenings take place at the Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In, where Phantom will play at 10pm on Friday, November 15th. The society's Nayib Estefan tells Shelly Davidov of Miami New Times that Phantom is "definitely an edgy movie. It mixes together glam rock, death rock, and a bunch of people ripped of[f] the look and makeup style of this movie, like Marilyn Manson."
Estefan added that in general, "We want to give a memorable experience to the patrons. We'll be doing things with musicians, playing live scores over movies, a lot of experimental stuff that will always be changing...We want to bring back a midnight event to Miami that hasn't been here for a long time." Not sure if that means anything special for the Phantom screening, but you never know.
Separate from the Secret Celluloid Society, the drive-in is partnering with Vice magazine to mark the 20th anniversary of De Palma's Scarface with a screening on December 7th, according to Davidov.
