Good Monday to everyone! We hope the weekend was a blast, and that your March Madness brackets are still holding strong after the second round — I know there were a few Wichita State fans who were not too happy. Without further ado lets get to the happenings around Columbus this week.
ABC6 reported last week that The North Market will be collaborating with The Gateway Film center to bring people a drive-in movie theatre in the parking lot of The North Market. This May a 30-foot high screen will be installed, and attendees will be able to park and tune into the movie using their car radio for sound. There will also be areas for people on foot/bicycle to enjoy the movies as well. The first movie shown will be Toy Story on Saturday, May 3, and there are plans to show Ghostbusters as well as Jaws. Admission for the event will be $18 per car, and $5 for those on foot.
Caps on High and Third Street Bridges
Columbus Underground reported that the city of Columbus has plans to put caps on the bridges over i70/71 soon. The “caps” will be similar to cap that bridges i-670 which connects the Short North and downtown Columbus. Apparently the caps are planned to be “green caps” with natural, park-like features. Don’t get too worried about construction yet though, as the caps aren’t scheduled for funding until 2017.
Matthew Goodwin, an assistant director for the AMC show, The Walking Dead, and also known for the movies “Flight,” “Gran Torino,” and “The Dark Knight,” will be speaking at Ohio State on March 27. Goodwin will speak to both students and the general public from 3:55-5:30 in Smith Lab room 1009. The event sounds like it’s going to be entertaining, and will cover topics like how Goodwin got started in the film industry. There will be a screening of “The Walking Dead,” with a Q and A session afterwards.
