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.
