See You Tonight, Brobocop?

Shame I only just found out about Sir Mitchell's newly released Brobocop tee; I woulda have worn it tonight, as it's no doubt much more comfortable than this helmet I espied on eBay. Ah, well. Next time. Oh, right, there won't be a next time. Tonight's screening of RoboCop in front of OCP HQ, otherwise known as Dallas City Hall, is a one-time-only wingding, the debut of our see-it-where-they-shot-it series that'll keep popping up when and where you least expect it.

A few things about tonight: Food trucks roll up at 7:30 p.m., and I've got a list of some of the participants: Nammi, for the banh mi enthusiast; Gandolfo's New York Deli, should your tastes lean instead toward a pastrami on rye or a Nathan's hot dog; and Enticed's "mobile gourmet shaved ice hookup," which has its many fans. 'Round 8:30ish, the movie starts -- and, really, if you haven't seen RoboCop, I beg you to leave the kids at home. Do bring chairs and blankets though. And be on your bestest behavior: Mayor Mike may stop by.

And for those who may be wondering why the fuss about showing RoboCop in front of City Hall, a video on the other side explains everything.

Still waiting for Dallas to have an idea that wasn't first done somewhere else. We are eternally riding coattails.

Someone should have yarn bombed it...

Thanks Robert, Downtown Dallas Inc., Dallas Film Society, and all others who helped set this up. It was a great way to spend a Friday night. I can't wait for the next movie!

Great job Robert et al. Real cool to see the great Angela Hunt there. Can't wait to see State Fair at the Fair Park Band Shell.

That was just fantastic. Great thanks, Robert. I was the dorky fat guy with the boonie hat who said thanks in person after the show.

Thank you guys, DTDallas Inc and Dallas Film Socirty so much for getting this set up! We had a great time and can't wait to do it again.Also, props to the City for allowing it. On a side note, why the hell did the Mayor bail? He had a chance to earn some major cool points.

I worked at Union Bankers Insurance at Good Latimer & Elm when they were shooting that.  They turned the entire block across the street from us into set and filmed a lot of it there, including blowing up a car.  We had so much fun for about a month watching.  The set looked so real we were sad to see the mostly-empty old shops revert to there former status.

Anybody know if they added bike parking capacity for this event?

Linda Koop was there as well. She and Hunt helped get the lights turned out, which was awful nice.

He had places to be. But I will slip him a copy next time I see him ...
