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.” –Suite101.com

“…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
