Netflix Rolling Roadshow: See Modern Classics Where They Were Filmed

Netflix is hitting the road this summer with a fun series of modern classics, including `Jaws,' `Ferris Bueller,' `Clerks' and `Escape from Alcatraz.' The hook is that each movie will be shown where it was filmed -- so you can watch `Field of Dreams' in the field in Iowa where it was shot, or see `The Shining' at the Stanley Hotel in Colorado where Jack went bonkers. Hosting the series is the folk-pop cutie Lisa Loeb.

Admission is free, and audiences are encouraged to bring their own folding chairs or blankets. A few screenings, like `Poseidon Adventure' at the Queen Mary in Long Beach or `Escape' on Alcatraz Island (which I'm hoping to go to), require tickets.
