On Set Cinema is a real and awesome thing.

Have you heard of On Set Cinema yet?  It's something my friend Kenny over at The Myers House NC is putting together where you can watch movies at their filming location!  How cool is that?!

Their first screening will be Empire Records on June 9 and will be held at Restaurant Rebellion, which served as Empire Records in the film.  But the real highlight -- for me, anyway -- is the July 7 screening of I Know What You Did Last Summer, which will be held at Harrell's Department Store (which was Shiver's Department Store in the movie).

I'm so insanely jealous of the people that get to attend these things.  Unfortunately, my schedule doesn't really allow me the time to do such things.

A little about On Set Cinema...
On Set Cinema is the brainchild of Kenny Caperton. Growing up in the 80s & 90s, like most kids at the time, he spent Friday nights wandering the aisles of local video stores with friends or at home eating junk food while watching late night cable television. Caperton has always been fascinated by movies, but his love runs much deeper than the average person. He has assimilated his passion for cinema into real life - for almost 20 years Caperton has been taking "vacation" trips all over the US & Canada to visit filming locations from his favorite movies and TV shows: The Shining, Empire Records, It Follows, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, The Goonies, Scream, Dawson's Creek, Scott Pilgrim VS The World, Stranger Things ...the list goes on and on. He even made a full length feature film that got worldwide distribution without taking a single filmmaking class. Caperton took everything to an entirely new level in 2008 when he decided to build and live in a life-size replica of the infamous Michael Myers' house from his favorite movie of all time - John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic, Halloween.

Kenny truly understands what it means to immerse oneself in something they love and has integrated this into his daily life. Now he wants to share that experience with other fans through On Set Cinema!
