Movie Host Mr. Lobo Speaks Out About Recent Colorado Tragedy

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.

BEASTS, BARBARIANS, B-MOVIES, BALLYHOO, BUDDIES AND THE BASH!

Tomorrow Mr. Lobo and Dixie head for THE DAYS INN in 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. They will be running classic horror films all weekend and on Saturday Night at 12:30 for this historic PREHISTORIC themed edition of their MONSTER BASH (Techically JUNE 24!) Mr. Lobo  and hard working cave girl Miss Cretaceous will be 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 it’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 a glass container at our table!
