Over the course of 2014, The Yellow Cab building has introduced a number of creative events. Now they are starting off the new year with a new monthly feature they are calling Movie Night at the Yellow Cab. The first movie will be the 1985 adventure-comedy The Goonies. “The first time I remember seeing the Goonies was when I was 5 years old and I loved it. But it was just as much fun watching it with my friend’s kids a few weeks ago,” said Organizer Brian Johnson. Movie Nights at The Yellow Cab will consist of either a cult classic or a new releases.
Organizers say that Movie Night at the Yellow Cab is a chance to go out with friends or to bring the whole family, depending on the movie, and that there will be a focus on collaboration with other local businesses. “For our first movie night, Lily’s Bistro will be serving bacon popcorn and we’ll be hosting a few food trucks. We’re also working with local breweries to serve craft beer during the movies,” said Johnson. Because Goonies has an expansive cult following, the event will also host a costume contest, so organizers encourage you to come dressed in your best Goonies gear.
Representatives from The Yellow Cab said they plan to make this a monthly event, saying that the first few movie nights will be held inside, but that they are hoping to move the viewing outside once the weather warms up, with a goal of creating a “movie in the park” or urban drive in feel.
