Fans of classic cars and classic films spent their evening in the parking lot of Film Alley Bastrop on Friday, August 28 watching the movie American Graffiti from their own cars. The Bastrop Area Cruisers were also there, displaying some of their classic cars, not too different form the ones portrayed on the big screen. On Saturday evening, Film Alley Bastrop hosted another drive-in movie event, this time showing Trolls as a fundraiser benefiting CASA of Bastrop, Fayette & Lee Counties, with another showing of American Graffiti on Sunday. Last weekend, they showed Jurassic World before moving the inflatable drive-in screen to the Terrell Film Alley location for a while.
