Last Sunday, Ferris Beuller paraded on the gravel lot just uphill from Minturn's Little Beach Park, where Austin-based Blue Starlite Drive-In has been screening 1980's classics all summer long on a billboard-sized inflatable screen with surround sound broadcast over FM radio. For its season finale, on Thursday (Sep. 1) Blue Starlite switched up its lineup from "The Shining" to "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," a Gene Wilder tribute. On Friday (Sep. 2), Willy Wonka and Ferris Bueller pair up in a double-feature summer sendoff. But don't worry. Like "The Terminator," they'll be back, when the pop-up cinema Conde Nast Traveler dubbed "one of the coolest movie theaters in the world" returns to Minturn for a second run in the summer of 2017.
