Drive-In Super Monster-rama - Sept. 6-7, 2013

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.


Here's the official info page:
