As many of you know a remake of the Mini related cult classic “The Italian Job” is scheduled to open May 30th – only two months away! It'll star Mark Wahlberg, Edward Norton, Charlize Theron, and Seth Green along with several tricked out MINIs. For those who don't know much about the original “Italian Job” it featured Michael Cane, an abundance of Minis, and the best car chase of all time.
So while we're still pinning down the details of next month's Chicago Club formation meeting – I thought I'd 2nd Ron's idea of a Italian Job Rally when the movie comes out.
The ideal time for this meet would be on the afternoon of Saturday May 31st – a day after the movie opens. I was thinking we should plan to meet somewhere ahead of time and then drive to the theatre. Should we plan some sort of pre-movie lunch and small drive? We also need to consider what theatre would be best for this. I'm thinking something in an accessable suburb with a decent amount of parking. The one that comes to mind immediately is the Crown Village 18 in Skokie off of Thouhy and down the road from the Edens.
Anyone else have ideas as far location and a plan before the movie.
