Tell your Cyberpals! This is not a mirage. Every pixel is back in place and we are running at 1.21 Lobowatts per second. Cyberterrorists driven by jealousy and hatred for misunderstood movies and Mr. Lobo tried to hold your official Cinema Insomnia website hostage. Thankfully our systems guru Olav helped us beat these Lawnmower Men at their own electronic game and cinemainsomnia.com is back with a vengeance. In the near future we will be moving the site to a private server and will have full episodes watchable right here. Stay Tuned, fellow Programs! End OF Line.

Your Cinema Insomnia host forever,
THE QUEST FOR BLOBFEST: MR. LOBO’S ON SCREEN CUT INS
This year Mr. Lobo just missed the Blob on Friday when he got lost due to road closures on the way to the stage show. The entire Colonial Theater yet again escaped with their lives as the Blob was eventually contained by the Phoenixville, PA Fire Department. Dr. Frank N. Stone used his super science to communicate with Mr. Lobo on route via “live” video link just before the annual run-out. This video is a condensed trilogy of cut-ins from the big screen. Enjoy.
Mr. Lobo is shocked, disturbed and saddened by the events at a Aurora, Colorado movie theater last night. It is a double tragedy that people seeking escape and fun in their local movie house would have both their fantasies and realities shattered by a real maniac with a gun. A movie theater is a safe sacred palace of our collective dreams – the pain and violence of the outside world we leave behind when we attend a theater has no place there. To the good people of the Denver area we are sending our love, support, and hope for your community to heal.
To everyone else, enjoy the few public places we have left and take in the arts. Enjoy the world of entertainment and each other and do not let the random acts of a lunatic deprive you of a rich life filled with fun, fantasy, and the company of others who share your love for the movies.
Tomorrow Mr. Lobo and Dixie head for THE DAYS INNÂ inÂ Butler, PA for the 2012 MONSTER BASH conference! We will be in the main hall near registration to greet fans and monsters along side Penny Dreadful and Company from Shilling Shockers.Â They will be running classic horrorÂ films all weekend and on Saturday Night at 12:30 for this historic PREHISTORIC themed edition of their MONSTER BASH (Techically JUNE 24!) Mr. LoboÂ and hard working cave girl Miss CretaceousÂ will beÂ giving prizes to volunteers who will help us with our DINO SIZED games in the name of science, leading the audience to perform the INSOMNIAC OATH, and presenting the MISUNDERSTOOD CLASSIC REPTILICUS! All this happens after the outdoor drive-in style films in the insect rich parking lot. After the preshow, REPTILICUS runs in itâ€™s entirety without interuption other than the usual mild heckling and snores!
Mr. Lobo will have a vendor table with all NEW CINEMA INSOMNIA prints and merchandise, art, and goodies for the kids…LIKE DINO DNA SLIME! We will also have a relative of Reptilicus growing live in aÂ glass containerÂ at our table!
We’ll aslo be hanging with our palsÂ Our pals Count Gore, Ghoul A Go Go will also RONDO winning director Daniel Griffith, and Buddy “Cult Movies” Barnett.Â The ZOM-BEE channel will be recording parts of this show for upcoming new epiosdes of CINEMA INSOMNIA! And many more friends and fans that we love to see each year!
SEE YOU ALL AT THE BASH!
Later this month at MONSTER BASH in Butler PA, whereÂ Mr. LoboÂ will be presenting another low rent disaster called REPTILICUS,Â he will also be meeting again with filmmaker Daniel Griffith toÂ shoot more interviews for upcoming documentaries for SHOUT FACTORY bonus features.Â One of the subjectsÂ we willÂ be talking about isÂ SCI-FI director Jack Arnold who gave us IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE, CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, TARANTULA, and THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN. In preparation forÂ his interviewÂ Mr. LoboÂ boned up onÂ Arnold’s work and wrote an article for the online version of HORROR HOSTS AND CREATURE FEATURES magazine. Check it out, eartlings!
Cinema Insomnia’s worldwide search for the winner of the “Who Wants To Marry Mr. Lobo” contest is over! Dixie Dellamorto – Horror Fan, Artist, Taste-Maker, and editor ofÂ Horror Hosts and Creature Features Magazine from Pennsylvania – is our official final finalist and THE NEW MRS. LOBO! Her duties on the show will occasionally include rotating the Hypno Spinner, delivering secret messages to Mr. Lobo,Â keeping Mr. Lobo’s table cloth straight at Â genreÂ conventions, watching very MISUNDERSTOOD MOVIES, adding a “womans touch” to Mr. Lobo’s projects,Â ironing neckties, and helping in the new Kitchen Set with Insomniac Snacks. She has already officially tied the knot with the famous Cinema Insomnia’s host in California earlier this year but a private East Coast party will be held for her friends and family in her home town on Friday July 13, 2012. Mr. Lobo has already Â congratulated the new Mrs. Lobo with a hearty handshake and offers his sincerest condolences! Thanks to everyone who participated – but don’t be jealous – Dixie’s will most undoubtably needÂ theÂ moral support of all CInsomniacs! All hail the new First Lady of Kitsch!Â
In the begining, this small globe cooled in the vacuum of outer space and gave rise to cold blooded beasts of massive size called horror movie fans! Every year the old ones gather at a special 3-day ritual called MONSTER BASH at the DAYS INN in BUTLER, PENNSYLVANIA! A freaky family reuinonÂ full of collectors, film and TV actors, spectres, robot erectors, movie projectors,Â genre inspectors, reality defectors, funeral directors, Dr. Lecters,Â and pocket protectors!

Men callÂ this hostÂ Mr. Lobo and if you are brave of spirit and have superiorÂ DNAÂ – you will be there in the movie room, too – for prizes, suprizes, and the INSOMNIAC OATH! All this happens after the outdoor drive-in style films in the insect rich parking lot andÂ before theÂ REPTILICUS runs in it’s entirety without interuption other than the usual mild heckling and snores!
