The Union Market Drive-In movie series returns for the summer Friday, and it's aiming squarely at those nostalgic for big studio fare from the 80s and 90s.
The venue's "Flashback Friday" gets started with "Jurassic Park," the 1993 Steven Speilberg franchise-starter that will definitely have less CGI than this summer's "Jurassic World."
The following week, on June 12, rom-com lovers are in luck, with 1990's "Pretty Woman," featuring Julia Roberts with thigh-highs and Richard Gere with not-all-grey hair. June 19 will run 1996's "Space Jam," the only Michael Jordan-Bugs Bunny-Marvin the Martian-Bill Murray vehicle in cinematic history.
The series concludes June 26 with 1984's "Beverly Hills Cop," the progenitor of the action-comedy genre and arguably Eddie Murphy's best role.
The parking lot at the Market opens at 6 p.m. each Friday, and the movies begin at 8 p.m. Parking in the lot costs $10, but pedestrians and cyclists, skateboarders or other modes of non-motor transit get in free. And there's all that good grub and drink in the market to choose from.
