On November 14, 1896, the first London to Brighton Run was held in England to celebrate raising the speed limit from 4 to 14 mph. The Indiana British Car Union (IBCU) celebrates the 123rd anniversary of this event with its annual rally/tour across Indiana, for all British cars. The Hoosier MG’s, in association with the IBCU rally/tour, is again hosting the Movie and Dinner before the London to Brighton Run – this year it will be the 1963 comedy “The Pink Panther”, starring Peter Sellers, at the Royal Theatre in Danville, Indiana.
So - Interested in a dinner before the movie? Two local Danville restaurants (Frank’s Place, Mayberry Café), have a special offer of a free (non-alcoholic) drink with the purchase of a dinner entrée at their establishment. Just show proof of British car ownership and you’re in.
The showing is FREE to all British car owners, regardless of whether you plan on running in the rally or not. Just show proof of British car ownership (running or not) at the door. As a bonus, each attendee will get a free Jr. Combo (popcorn, drink, candy, handy tray) courtesy of the IBCU, including one free refill on drink and popcorn! The movie runs 115 minutes and will start promptly at 7:00 pm on Thursday, June 6th. The Royal Theatre is located a short drive west of Indy just off SR36 in Danville (59 S. Washington St.).
Don’t forget the London to Brighton Run on Saturday, June 8th, to top off the week. The run is a top notch event put together by the IBCU. You don’t want to miss it. A day of great driving on the Indiana backroads and great fellowship with the drivers and Co-pilots. Hope to see you all there.
