Do you love some good, old-fashioned fun? Then we'll seeeee you at the movies!
Our friends at Canaltown (552 Main St., Honesdale) are throwing a special movie screening of indie/horror flick Attack of the Killer Shrews on Saturday, March 18 starting at 8pm at Cinema 6 in Honesdale. What's better than a Spookyfest special premiere? Some of the proceeds will go directly to help fund the feasibility study.
The movie is produced by White Lion Studios, an independently owned and operated studio in Western New York. The crew will be on hand to chat about the movie. They love the Honesdale region so much, that they might even shoot a follow up film in our area!
Here's more from NEPA Scene (emphasis ours):
Intended as a double feature for drive-in theaters alongside “The Giant Gila Monster,” the original “Killer Shrews” went on to be featured in the fourth season of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” and has since touched the hearts of many. The movie, produced by Ken Curtis and Gordon McLendon, is so bad that it’s actually good. Starring James Best, the story follows a group of people trapped on an island with gigantic carnivorous killer shrews. The highlight of the film is definitely the shrews, which were large dogs hidden under cheap costumes and fanged masks.
Tickets for the screening at Cinema 6 (1199 Texas Palmyra Hwy., Honesdale) are $12, with $2 from every ticket sold going to river and trail projects in Honesdale and Hawley, such as the Honesdale River Project. There will be a chance to meet the filmmakers and encourage them to film their planned “Shrews” sequel in Honesdale. The event is BYOB.
