“`Experience the drive-in movie with a twist. Free tickets are now available online for Friday night drive-in movies at Ontario International Airport beginning on June 19th. Their first screening, Ford vs. Ferrari, is already sold out. Upcoming screenings include The Sandlot (July 3rd), The Princess Bride (July 17th), and Napoleon Dynamite (July 31st).

“`A portion of the 2019 movie that starred Matt Damon and Christian Bale was filmed at the airport. Also used was the Auto Speedways at Fontana and Pomona.

“`The show will take place in ONT’s parking lot five, and feature two fifty-foot screens. Sound will be delivered on FM radio. Food trucks will be on site including Poutine Brothers, Grilled Cheese Truck, Afters Ice Cream, and My Delight Cupcakery.  Gates open at 7p, and the movies start at 8:30p. Reservations are by car, not the number of people inside. The series is a partnership between the airport, the City of Ontario, and Street Food Cinema.


“`HBO Max has temporarily removed Gone With the Wind from its streaming library to add historical context to the 1939 movie long criticized for romanticizing slavery and the Civil War-era South. Recent demonstrations have motivated the company to re-think the presentation of the 1939 epic on its platform.

“`HBO explains it this way:

Historical context and a denouncement of those very depictions, but will be presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed.

“`Gone With the Wind remains available for digital rental and purchase. On Wednesday, it rose toward the top of movie charts on Amazon and Apple iTunes.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
