Right now unless things change "The Field of Dreams" staring Kevin Costner.  This is the 25 Anniversary of the movie and the entire Movie cast is celebrating with a party at the Movie site this summer.  the Movie was filmed about 30 minutes from Amana @ Dyersville, Iowa.

 

Seemed fitting and a good Family Movie.  Popcorn provided bring your own drinks and snacks. 

 

Could be a double feature if there is call for it.  "For the Love of the Game." starring Kevin Costner.

   

 

We'll also have a campfire going too should be fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Any Movie suggestions???????  We're open for ideas.

Now THERE's an idea!   25-30 inches of rain in 3 days, not to mention the wind and 15 foot tidal surge.  Better not though.  The two weeks without electricity would ruin the rally.  :)

RV theme comedy-movies to consider:

 

The Long, Long Trailer 1954, NR

This is a timeless film that features Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz as a honeymooning couple in an oversized camping trailer.   Fellow campers will relate to the misadventures they encounter, with side-splitting scenes that the entire family will appreciate.

 

RV (Runaway Vacation) 2006, PG

If you’ve taken one of our RV camping trips in a rental RV, this movie starring Robin Williams as Bob Munro will hit home with its hilarious antics.  The family (complete with two rebellious teenagers) sets off for the Rockies. The parking brake is damaged as they back out of the driveway and the mishaps begin.  As the trip progresses, the family’s interactions improve, rendering some heart-touching moments.  The soundtrack of the movie will be enjoyed by all.

 

The Great Outdoors 1988, PG

This is a classic movie about the desire to “get away from it all” and enjoy a peaceful family vacation.  Unfortunately, Chet Ripley (the late, great John Candy) finds anything but peace and quiet in this rollicking adventure.  Dan Aykroyd is Roman Craig, Chet’s brother-in-law, and when he and his family show up the adventures begin.

No chance of hurricane, but we do have tornado's here.

 

If that's the case and there is no place to hide underground.  We all can commit a Federal crime and break into the bank uptown and hide in their basement.  :sign0020:    I can see the headlines now.

I've checked and that's the closest basement for us to hide in.

Tammie had picked out the 2nd one for an idea in our initial list.  Its hard to pick a movie that the majority would like.  Everyone just has to remember its just a fun time and memory to create and remember.   the first one dates me as younger than you Doug.  haha.  I have not seen that one it would probably be funny knowing Lucy, Desi.

Do you have any of these on DVD or Blue Ray?  Bring along the projector plays either.

As for movies, I don't have any on disk. 

 

As for Field of Dreams, that's a great movie and I look forward to seeing it again.   Bridges of Madison County is also another great movie the ladies would like.

 

And, for classics, any of the old Humphrey Bogart/Katherine Hepburn movies are great love and adventure stories, like, The African Queen or of course, and, on the western theme, The Treasure of Sierra Madre. 

 

We'll all enjoy the event as much as the movie...so whatever is shown is just fine.
