Boris Karloff is recognized as one of the true icons of horror cinema. We like to celebrate the great Hollywood Boogie Men at Super-8 Movie Madness and this August’s show is no exception. We’ve had Super-8 VINCENT PRICE Movie Madness and now on Tuesday August 7th at The Way Out Club we’ll be presenting….SUPER-8 BORIS KARLOFF MOVIE MADNESS !!!
That’s right; we’ll be showing condensed (average length: 15 minutes) versions of several of Boris Karloff’s greatest films on Super-8 sound film projected on a big screen. Here’s the Karloff line-up: FRANKENSTEIN, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, HOUSE OF FRANKENSTEIN, THE MUMMY, THE DEVIL COMMANDS, THE RAVEN (with Bela Lugosi), and ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE. The non-Karloff movies shown August 7th are: THE DEADLY MANTIS, AIRPORT ’79 THE CONCORDE, ANIMAL HOUSE, The Little Rascals in CANNED FISHING, THE SUB-MARINER (the ‘60s Cartoon), Shirley Temple in the politically incorrect ‘Baby Burlesque’ short KID ‘N AFRICA, and the STAR TREK Blooper Reel.
Cover charge is a mere $3.00 and the show begins at 8pm. We’ll have Karloff trivia with prizes, and, as usual, there will be lots of posters and T-Shirts and stuff given away. The Way Out Club is located at 2525 Jefferson Avenue in South St. Louis (corner of Jefferson and Gravois). There are yummy Way-Out pizzas available for only $8.00.
