July 16, 2013 A weekend full of nostalgic retro thrills and chills, DRIVE-IN SUPER MONSTER-RAMA is two nights of classic horror and science fiction 35mm prints presented at an authentic drive-in movie theater.
There will be two big shows on two consecutive nights which will start at dusk and go on until really late into the night! This is the seventh year in a row that we are hosting such an event, so we encourage all drive-in movie fanatics to travel from near and far, as you’re not going to find anything else like it, anywhere!
This year’s weekend event will be presented as a Peter Cushing Centenary, celebrating the 100th birthday year of the iconic British genre star (1913-1994). All eight feature films have Cushing in a starring or supporting role. This is the ONLY major Cushing Centenary event happening in the US, so you won’t want to miss it!
What could be better than a weekend getaway topped off with two nights of classic monster movies on the big outdoor screen? We realize that everything is so expensive these days, but admission is still only $10 a person each night! Plus, children 12 and under are free with parent or adult guardian. How can you beat that? The Riverside’s concession stand is loaded with reasonably priced goodies, including hot foods, hot and cold drinks, candy, popcorn and much more!
What is being shown and when?
On Friday, September 6, the features will be BRIDES OF DRACULA, FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED, FEAR IN THE NIGHT and FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE.
On Saturday, September 7, the features will be MADHOUSE, AT THE EARTH’S CORE, ASYLUM and SHOCK WAVES.
Each night we will also present an array of vintage monster movies trailers, cartoons and short subjects in between the features which we know you will just love! The gates will open at 7 PM and the show will start at dusk and continue late into the night.
