It’s The Fabulous Fifties On LRPA After Dark

During The Month Of July

This Weekend’s Feature: 1957’s “Attack Of The Crab Monsters”

 

Throughout July, Lakes Region Public Access Television has featured four films from the fabulous 50’s, a decade known in cinema for many things, including the end of the Hollywood musical; the “Red Scare” and blacklisting of screenwriters; film noir standouts; and Cold War/atomic panic. Join us each Friday and Saturday night at 10:30 p.m. as we salute this remarkable decade. This weekend (July 27 & 28), we close out the Fabulous Fifties with our presentation of Roger Corman’s 1957 science fantasy gem, Attack of the Crab Monsters, starring Richard Garland, Pamela Duncan and Russell Johnson (best known as The Professor from TV’s Gilligan’s Island). As the film opens, a team of scientists lands on a small Pacific island to study the effects of nuclear radiation on sea life. An earlier scientific expedition to this remote atoll mysteriously disappeared, so this new group is also hoping to find evidence of what may have happened to their predecessors. The scientists have been escorted to this island on a Navy seaplane. As the plane takes off back to the mainland, it explodes in mid-air, effectively stranding the team. Expedition members soon begin to realize that things are very wrong on this island, including earthquakes, landslides, killer earthworms, disembodied voices – and giant, mutated, super-intelligent crabs! Will any of them survive? Attack of the Crab Monsters is a cult classic, and true to Roger Corman’s heart, cost only $70,000 to produce but grossed more than $1 million at the box office. In Corman’s own words: “You always had the feeling when watching [this] movie that something, anything, was about to happen … I think that this construction, plus the fact that the creature was big and ugly, won audiences.” Who can resist? Grab your popcorn and meet after dark for this schlocky goodness from our cinematic past. 

 

Keep your eyes peeled for more movie treats this fall, including a “Silent September” (silent movie greats each weekend) and LRPA’s 3rd Annual “Shocktober” Festival in October!

 


Have you tuned in to “Libraries Rock” this summer at the Chesley Memorial Library?  You can rock on with the Friends of the Northwood Libraries at the Bean Hole Bash on Saturday, July 28!  The Friends will be at the Congregational Church’s Fellowship Hall making felted rock monsters from 9:00am until 1:00pm.   Stop by and make your own felted rock monster.  Cute monsters, scary monsters… the possibilities are endless!
