Famous Movies in Famous Places


This August, the Netflix Rolling Roadshow celebrates classic American movies by screening them in the locations they helped make famous. Last night, at Left and Center Field of Dreams—Lansing Road Dyersville, Iowa—I listened to Kevin Costner and his band play as a prelude to watching the Field of Dreams movie on an outdoor inflatable screen. When Ray Kinsella replied to the question, “Is this heaven?,” with the answer of, “No, this is Iowa,” the crowd cheered both times. See a line of car headlights from the event increased the surreal atmosphere of the night.
