The Nerds vs. Steve McQueen: Blobfest 2014

Spend a day with hundreds of others celebrating the local treasure that is the Blob. Full details can be found by clicking the link at the bottom, but here it is in a nutshell:

Friday night, July 11th [SOLD OUT]: The annual live show and run-out of the theater. I won't be going to this event, and if you haven't already purchased tickets, you can still observe the run-out from the street (usually occurs around 9:00pm).

Saturday, July 12th:
Street Fair occurs all day long, featuring music, vendors, contests, and a fire extinguisher parade. I plan to enter the costume contest at 1pm.

The theater will be screening The Blob as part of a double feature three times that day.

11am: The Blob/Mothra
3:10pm: The Blob/Mothra
8pm: The Blob/King Kong vs. Godzilla

(I will either be attending the 3:10pm or the 8pm show... not sure which one yet)

Sunday, July 13th:
Although the Street Fair will be over, the theater will be screening another Blob double feature at 2pm (The Blob/The Giant Spider). The Giant Spider is actually a recent film, created in the style of an old B-movie.

    If anyone's going to the 8:00 movie, let me know, and I'll hang out in the lobby. For the movie, I'll be in the standard "Nerd Herd" row (row N), on the left side as you walk in.

    I'm planning to hit the 3:10 double feature of The Blob and Mothra. Anyone else catching that showing? Will also be checking out the street fair prior to that, should be arriving around 12:30-1:00ish. Anyone wants to link up, message me through the Meetup site.

      My son and I are going to the 3:10 show. This will be his first blob fest.

    Not sure what events everyone plans to attend, but I will be in the costume contest at 1:00 (look for a guy in a top hat... that's all I'm sharing for now), then I'll be checking out the street fair (but can arrange to get together with anyone in the afternoon). I also plan to attend the 8pm movie, so if anyone wants to meet in the lobby around 7:30, let me know.

    Well, if this isn't enough reason to go, I don't know WHAT is... Joel Hodgson will be one of the Costume Contest judges.
