Outdoor Cinema at Convoy in the Park
Do you like movies? Then be sure to check out our giant outdoor cinema, which will be screening some great films over the course of Convoy in the Park - including, naturally, the classic 1978 truck flick Convoy.
The Sam Peckinpah-directed Convoy is regarded as one of the all-time great trucking-based movies. In it, driver ‘Rubber Duck’ (Kris Kristofferson) and his unsuspecting ride-along Melissa (Ali MacGraw) are chased through three states by a corrupt traffic cop named ‘Dirty Lyle’ (Ernest Borgnine). The green light is sent out over the American CB airwaves for a convoy of truckers to help keep the police off his trail.
