After wowing the hipster masses with their temporary Lower East Side ping pong parlor, the gang at GrandOpening faced a tough challenge in figuring out what to do next with their Norfolk Street storefront. Then, inspiration struck in the form of a 1965 Ford Falcon convertible, and so, the LES now has a drive-in movie theater, kinda. The details of DRV-IN are thus: Seats six, costs $75 total per flick, daily screenings at 7 and 10. First up (and starting September 17), films of the '60s. A full concession stand is promised, but it's looking like a tight squeeze in there. Dig the fake tree, though.
