Virtual Cinema a Go Go Returns! Friday, May 22 7:00pm
We had so much fun last time that we're back again with our second "virtual" Cinema a Go Go. Please join us when Retro Cocktail Hour host Darrell Brogdon hosts a watch party from the Underground Martini Bunker, this time featuring a real classic - The Blob (1958) starring Steve McQueen!
A cult classic of gooey greatness, The Blob was made in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania by a maverick film distributor and a small studio that had previously made only religious movies. In his first starring role, Steve McQueen plays an oversexed teenager who can't get anybody to believe his story about a meteor that crashed to Earth and disgorged a ravenous gooey parasite. This low budget epic helped to launch the careers of Steve McQueen, Aneta Corsaut (Miss Crump on TV's Andy Griffith Show) and composer Burt Bacharach, who wrote the trippy theme song.
