'American Graffiti' to show at drive-in event

Miner Staff Reporter

KINGMAN - "American Graffiti" is coming to the outdoor big screen Friday during the first Route 66 Drive-In Movie Night.

The event, sponsored by the Kingman Area Chamber of Commerce, begins at 7:30 p.m. with the opening of the drive-in area in Staples Plaza at 3320 Stockton Hill Road. The movie starts at 8 p.m. Admission is $10 per vehicle or walk-in, and cars will be directed to the east end of the parking lot to enter. Lawn chairs are encouraged.

The screen will face east from the parking lot in front of Staples, said Michelle Winder, director of communications for the chamber. After the 110-minute movie ends, cars will be directed to exit on the west end of the parking lot. The movie's sound will be broadcast through FM signal on car and personal radios.

"The chamber wanted to give the community a family-oriented event," said Winder. "Our goal is to engage all levels of the family, not just the adults."

"American Graffiti" is a coming of age film about four teenagers cruising the strip in a small town in 1962 on their last summer night before leaving for college. Directed by George Lucas, it stars Richard Dreyfuss, Ron Howard, Wolfman Jack, Harrison Ford and Suzanne Somers.

Winder said the idea for an outdoor movie night came after the Historic Route 66 Association of America wanted to sponsor a sock hop last year in Kingman in conjunction with its annual Fun Run the same weekend but didn't have enough time to put it together.
