Be Cool. Be Clean.

SI Borough Hall - TRANS-700px

In cooperation with the Office of the Staten Island Borough President Jim Oddo and NYC Council Member Steve Matteo we support the anti-littering campaign for Staten Island.  Our four museum sites are targets for litter and carelessness year-round.  We spend a tremendous amount of resources trying to clear litter and debris from our sites.  These cleanups divert staff, volunteers and funds away from our mission to preserve American history and share it with children and visitors.

Littering drags down our entire community. It wastes time and money.  Let's be cool.  Let's be clean.  Keep SI Clean.  

Here's a video we created that makes that point.

Keep SI Clean.

All American Drive-In is Back!

rabslogopng512-700px


PRESENTS


featured box driveinThe most fun a family can have in one retro night!  In the summer of 2013 we launched a new mini-event: the All American Drive-In. We decided to show a quintessential summer film, JAWS, for one night. We priced it family-friendly and within hours of its posting in the press, it sold out. The night of the Drive-In brought nearly a thousand guests.

They parked their cars, strolled the historic park, checked out some classic cars and then settled in for some an old-fashioned fun. The snack wagon was hopping and the picnic tables were filled. The crowd munched popcorn and hot dogs as they took in the blockbuster on the big screen. It was another Historic Richmond Town success story.

This year we bring back the All-American Drive-In for six nights in August. Thanks to the Northfield Bank Foundation we now have doubled our screen size to 40 feet.  Stereo sound will be area-cast on FM so every vehicle will have a super experience.  In addition, loudspeakers will bring the sound to those hanging out at the snack bar or at the picnic tables up front.

It's the super seventies at Historic Richmond Town.  Three big, popular films!  Plus present-day short films.  What a mix of madness and fun on one big screen!  It means hours and hours of amusement for the whole family.  And don't forget our snack bar filled with candies you remember and love.

Please follow us on Twitter  and Facebook for discount codes on other cool info!

Indie Films Graphic

Our All American Drive-In guests will see some of the best and most innovative independent short films produced today.  These films transform the All American Drive-in an international film fest.  So for the price of one ticket you can see a classic popular film rarely projected on a huge screen and cool cutting edge films that you can't see anywhere else. 

Short Film Extravaganza!

We are honored to bring you these films.  Film on SI has had a long and successful history. It's fitting that Historic Richmond Town showcase the work of filmmakers from the New York area and around the world. 


Official Selections


A large number of talented filmmakers wanted to park their film at the Drive-In. Over 1000 films from around the world were submitted!  It took a lot of serious judging by our committee of award winning professional filmmakers and culture geeks to whittle down the long list to a select few.  But we did it! 

Congratulations to the following films selected to be screened at the Drive-In.  The two top winners will be revealed during the Drive-In on the first night each winning film is screened. Be there or be square.
