On Saturday October 17th Mayo Street Arts hosts 'MOVIE NIGHT' with a creepy double feature of Mothra and Creature from the Black Lagoon - two vintage horror flicks that show how dim lighting, some cardboard, silicone, and fishing line can create legend. With special introduction by local B-movie aficionado Brendan Evans of Strange Maine.
Audience members who dress as their favorite creatures win a fabulous prize from one of the fabulous sponsors: Ferdinand, Strange Maine, Coast City Comics, Pinecone & Chickadee, The International Cryptozoology Museum.
In addition, there will be popcorn and a cash bar available.
Free for members - MEMBERS PLEASE RSVP so we can get a headcount: firstname.lastname@example.org
