What has seemed like forever, the Skyline Drive-In in Shelbyville, IN has finally announced their lineup (well… most of it) for this year’s Super Monster Movie Fest. Earlier, they had mentioned the theme was going to be Man Made Monsters, which lead to a lot of guessing and speculation. But now, other than one more title on each night that is to be announced, we have our titles. And here they are:
Friday, Aug. 23rd
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde 1931
4D Man (1959)
Alligator People (1959)
Sat. Aug. 24th
The Fly (1986)
Island of Terror (1966)
Man Made Monster (1941)
They have some great selections this time out, with more than a few personal favorites, such as Man Made Monster, which was covered in the very first Famous Monsters magazine I ever bought and had those photos committed to memory, so it has always remained one of my favorites from my childhood. Plus, Island of Terror, starring Peter Cushing, is just a damn fun movie! Of course, while I have seen the original Frankenstein on the big screen before, both at the drive-in and a regular theater, getting to see it once again is just awesome.
If you’re like me and don’t live in the immediate area, I know what you’re thinking. “Why would I want to drive all that way to watch some movies at a drive-in when I have all those movies on DVD or Blu-ray?” If you’ve been to the drive-in before, then I probably don’t have to answer that. If you haven’t, then now is your chance to experience something that is dying out, but is a wonderful experience for you and the whole family. Great people, amazing food, and just an all-around good time. There’s plenty to do to keep you busy. Trust me. It really is worth the drive.
Tickets are only $12 for adults and $6 for children, or you can buy a 2-day pass for $20. So mark your calendar and don’t miss out on this great time. To order tickets, just click HERE.
