This is a 3-day event, and you are welcome to attend all or part of the festivities. I am setting the start time for Friday evening, July 12th, but it runs all day Saturday and spills into Sunday as well.
Announced highlights are as follows:
Friday, July 12: This consists of a stage show beginning at 7:30pm, followed by the run-out you see on the news (and YouTube) every year. There is NOT a screening of the movie on Friday.
Saturday, July 13: Bridge Street is closed to traffic, so that vendors, classic cars, and music can be displayed. A costume contest takes place outside in the afternoon (I may be participating... we'll see). Inside the theater, other vendors are set up, and movies play throughout the day:
A double feature of The Blob and Them! at 11am and again at 3:15pm
A double feature of The Blob and Tarantula at 8pm
Sunday, July 14: The vendors and street fair are gone, but the theater will be playing a double feature of The Blob and The Deadly Mantis at 2pm
Special guest Keith Almoney, who played Danny Martin (the kid in the pajamas who shoots at the Blob with his toy gun like a badass), will be present all weekend.
I may post a separate date/time for the group to meet during the event, but I'm not even sure what days I'll be there yet.
