After the huge oozing success that was last years show, Mr. Lobo was hired by the festival committee again to MC this years mighty Blobfest, July 11th, 12th, and 13Th at the Colonial Theater in Phoenixville, PA – location for the original film THE BLOB(1958).
At the nearby Downingtown Diner–over “Blob Burgers” and Appetizers–plans were discussed and stage routines were worked out with festival staples Dr. Frank N. Stone, Dr. Ima Hack, and Dixie Dellamorto. There will be, as always, a big stage show Friday Night, July 11th, climaxing with the annual “run-out” reenactment at 9pm. The only time Mr. Lobo is glad to see paying customers run out of the theater screaming.Saturday the 12th the theater will run double-features all day and there will be a fun street fair. The theme this year is giant monsters. Presented along with screenings of THE BLOB, films with really big stars like Godzilla, King Kong, and Mothra will be shown!
It was raining hard outside but Joan K. of the BLOBFEST team took these quick iphone shots of Mr. Lobo at the site of the original diner scene from the movie THE BLOB. The building itself has been refurbished but the lot, the foundation, and basement are as they were in the film.
Much more craziness to come! Mark the date, bring the family to The Colonial Theatre, and Mr. Lobo will see you in Phoenixville LIVE and IN PERSON this July!
