‘Dive-In’ Movie: Legendary Marine hosting movies, football games on floating screen

Published: Friday, August 9, 2013 at 03:26 PM.

After the success of the movie, McKissick and the marketing team gathered again and spun off an idea to show a college football game on the big screen. The only issue now is deciding what game to show.

The comments on Legendary Marine’s Facebook page are mixed, but games featuring Alabama, Florida State and Florida seem to be the favorites.

“Destin is Nole Country!” David Binder commented.

Tracy Brooks Saucier disagreed. “LSU-Alabama!” she responded.

Anyone interested in watching a game on the water can be a booster for their team at www.facebook.com/LegendaryMarine. The one major limitation is that it has to be a night game, so the projection on the screen will be visible.

Smith said Legendary Marine is also interested in teaming up with other local businesses to sponsor the event and vendors to provide food and drinks. She said she would also like to see the city get involved and help provide a prime location to watch the game.

“We would love to be able to do it at Crab Island, but there’s no barge big enough there now,” Smith said.
