During the week, the lot at The Drive-In sits vacant—but it's far from abandoned. A bit before the clock strikes 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, cars start to crowd into empty spots. The carloads of families and couples on date night are there for the feature, which usually includes one kid-friendly movie—think Planes—or one for grownups, such as Wolverine. Plus, audience members can munch on buckets of popcorn as films unfold.
Showcasing North Alabama’s finest crop of comic madness and unhinged creativity, Face2Face Improv’s professional players rely on audience participation and their own wits to concoct hilariously improvised situations at knee-jerk speeds. The cast turns to the all-ages crowd for assistance in constructing the most outrageous scenarios imaginable, gathering shouted suggestions and throwing back crumpled scripts for audience members to wipe their tears of laughter on. Comics then proceed to step into and out of roles with remarkable fluidity over the course of two acts, inhabiting the mind of a vegan butcher in one scene and a claustrophobic cave-diver in the next. As audience suggestions guide the show through all of its unexpected turns, each performance is entirely different from the last, and shows are remembered only by the lingering cramps of laughter and the shirt stains from soda that’s been squirted out of noses.
