Sci-fi film fest at De Lux

posted by Jim Vecchio on August 7, 2008 at 2:45 am

MILFORD, CT — Starting in August and continuing through September, the CINEMA de lux 14 (in the CT POST Shopping Mall) will be stuck in the Fifties and Sixties. I can’t wait to check my brain in at the box office and revisit on the big screen all those entertaining sci-fi flicks that I have been watching over and over on DVDs!

The line-ups will be:

August 7-Giant Gila Monster and, of course, Killer Shrews
August 14-Gorgo plus Teenagers From Outer Space
August 21-The Brain That Wouldn’t Die plus First Spaceship on Venus
August 28-Devil Girl From Mars plus the ‘legendary’ ROBOT MONSTER!

Sept. 4 “Giant From The Unknown” plus “She Demons"
Sept 11: "Wasp Woman” plus “Phantom From 10,000 leagues"
Sept. 18: "Monster From A Prehistoric Planet” plus “Voyage To A Prehistoric Planet"
Sept. 25: "Last Man On Earth” plus “Bride of The Beast'
Oct. 2: "Bucket Of Blood” plus “Attack Of The Giant Leeches

I sure wish we could go back to those days when these films were the ‘norm’! Well, maybe they weren’t the ‘norm’, but they were at least commonplace!

Hate to break the news to you, but although these will be on the big screen, this series is run from DVDs. I went to a couple last year, and the scope titles were pan-scan versions.

Thanks for the “warning”, Carl! I kind of assumed DVDs might be used, but was hoping against it-I will plan to attend, unless the quality is very poor-I’ll let you know after tonight!

These are all public domain films too. Beware of poor quality bootleg DVD’s projected on the big screen!

Carl, This is my report: I was all set and ready to go. My daughter, who did not have the advantages I enjoyed, was anxious to see the movies on the big screen. As we were about to enter the door, the tv flashed a tornado warning, in the area that extended from my home to the area of the theater.
It was a dark and stormy night. The wind howled. The rain tore ferociously at the ground. Hail viciously attacked in a resounding assault upon our windows. Broadcasters ceaselessly pleaded to stay off the roads. But, did that stop me from seeing the movies?

No. I just pushed in the DVDs and held me own festival at home!-Here’s hoping I get to see “Gorgo” next week! If not, I have my DVD ready…just in case!
