Movie Thumb

The Blob (1958)

The definitive cheesy ’50s horror movie about a strange, red mass of protoplasm that arrives via a meteor and continues to grow, eventually attaining such a size that it is able to consume every living thing it encounters. The first starring role for Steve McQueen, this flick has to be seen in a classic movie palace to be properly appreciated! Directed by Irvin S. Leaworth, Jr.

A cartoon will precede the feature for our showing.

“It’s exuberant and extraordinary, and just nasty enough.” –

“…there’s something charming about it as if all the tacky aspects of the 1950s (and again, I’m talking about the white, squeaky clean, small-town 1950s) were distilled into a fast-moving 86 minutes. –Playback:STL
