Online movie rental-service Netflix will screen 10 classics this August at locations made famous by the films. The Netflix Rolling Roadshow, a coast-to-coast promotional tour, begins 2 August at New York's Coney Island with the 1979 gang movie, THE WARRIORS.

Some of the stops include Dyersville, Iowa, in a baseball field surrounded by cornstalks for FIELD OF DREAMS; Martha's Vineyard, Mass., for the now 'old war horse' JAWS; Northbrook, Illinois, for FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF; and so it goes all the way to San Francisco's Alcatraz Island for ESCAPE FROM ALCATRAZ.

Other activities related to the films will be held in association with the tour, such as raft floating in the ocean during JAWS. Some directors and cast members may attend some of the screenings. For instance, Director Kevin Smith and cast members are expected to be on hand for CLERKS at a Quick Stop in Leonardo, N.J.
