    This is a little late, but I wanted to post some links regarding the annual (and possibly final) Drive-In Super Monster-rama, run by George Reis of DVD Drive-In.com and The Riverside Drive-In in Vandergrift, PA. I've attended
    every year since the beginning, and it's an amazing two days of horror time-travel.

    This year is a celebration of what would have been Peter Cushing's 100th birthday, with 8 films starring the man, all shown on 35mm:

    BRIDES OF DRACULA
    FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED
    FEAR IN THE NIGHT
    FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE
    MADHOUSE
    AT THE EARTH'S CORE
    ASYLUM
    SHOCK WAVES

    In between they run vintage horror/cult/Drive-In trailers, snack bar ads, cartoons, and Three Stooges shorts. Tom Savini and Doug Bradley have attended the last two years, not as celebrities but as fellow fans.

    The Riverside Drive-In, like most ozoners, is facing possible closure after this season if they can't raise funds to convert to digital projection, so this could possibly be the last chance to see a show like this at a Drive-In in the U.S.,
    sourced from film. The owners have said that if they do manage to convert and stay open, they'll keep their 35mm setup, so that Monster-rama can continue into the future as-is.
