If you evaluate the topics of movies, you’ll notice that there are a lot of common ones. There are super heroes, invading aliens, spies and counterspies, historical events, and love stories. However, it’s a rare thing to find a movie based on the self storage industry.

Boxed In is an independent film that will be showing July 11 through July 14 in the San Francisco Frozen Film Festival – and it is based on the self storage industry. [More]

However, you are probably never locked inside your own facility being chased by a voracious alien predator. At least I don’t think you have!

You’ve probably heard about the movie Storage 24. It’s far different from the Storage Wars television program. Storage 24 is a movie where a military cargo plane crashes over London. Its highly classified contents are strewn across the city. [More]

Back to the Future DeLorean To Go Back to Storage in Ireland

by Tony Gonzalez July 16, 2010 11:04 PM
Another of the rare 1981 DeLoreans, one of which played a starring role in Steven Spielberg’s Back to the Future movies, changed hands in Ireland this week. At first, the famous DeLorean was put up for auction on July 2 at auctioneer Bonham’s “Goodwood Festival of Speed,” but it did not sell that day. Finally, car collector Michael Gallagher of Crossmolina, in Mayo County, Ireland bought it directly from the previous owner, Miranda Guinness, the Countess of Iveagh. Gallagher is showing the DeLorean in the Mayo Old Engine and Tractor Club Show this Sunday. Then he will put it into a secure storage facility with the rest of his car collection. [More]
