Movie Mike Presents : Morbid Movie Madness – A Survey of Serials of the 30s and 40s First Chapters of Thrilling Tales in Real 16mm!

Jun 30, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| $10
Screen Shot 2015-06-30 at 3.20.56 PM

Here is real 16mm film, not video! Show is a cross-section of the serial genre of the 30s and 40s consisting of first-chapters of a variety of serials, including the Phantom Creeps (Lugosi as mad scientist with monster robot) Undersea Kingdom (Crash Corrigan in Atlantis via atomic submarine), In Darkest Africa (Clyde Beatty and flying Bat Men in the Lost City) Captain Marvel (the wizard Shazam transforms young Billy into a superhero). First-chapters introduce all the characters and explain the plot challenge, show the best bits to pull you in, and end in a cliffhanger. They are the most coherent chapters and play well as standalone shows.

The Screening will be hosted and presented by Movie Mike, who will be introduced by Joel Schlemowitz, the Morbid Anatomy Museum’s Resident Film Programmer and Arcane Media Specialist
