Back to the Bricks’ Main Event week rolled on with the annual “Brick Flicks” party at the U.S. 23 Drive-In Theatre in Mundy Township on Aug. 17. Spectators relaxed in lawn chairs next to their vehicles and took in this year’s encore presentation of the 2003 heist/action thriller film “The Italian Job.” Car enthusiasts brought a variety of hot rods and vintage rides to the “Brick Flicks” party, including Gaines resident Brice Merrow, who brought his 1972 GMC pick-up truck that was featured in the 2008 film “Semi-Pro.” Mini Coopers, which played an important role in “The Italian Job” movie, were also well-represented at the show.
