Do you dare to enter into world of Ed Wood Jr. and witness this creature that defies the laws of nature? Join us this week as we celebrate not only the creature but other misunderstood creatures, both from the mind of Ed Wood, and beyond!

 

With Halloween just around the corner, we have new shirts in our store!

015-AstronautsWe hope all of you enjoyed the Solar Eclipse yesterday, no matter how short it may have been in your area. This week, we are heading back into space IN SEARCH FOR ANCIENT ASTRONAUTS! We are again asking that deep, plaguing question….”Are We Alone?”

Join us this week as we head to the stars with MR. LOBO as we explore the galaxies to learn the truth behind the stars. We will feature other forms of astronautical delights with clips, trailers, toys, and posters from space-themed features throughout the ages.

This Second T-Shirt is based off of the pin-back button featuring Mr. Lobo’s motto, “THEY ARE NOT BAD MOVIES — JUST MISUNDERSTOOD! Mr. Lobo has been wearing on the show and at live events in recent years featuring the motto he coined on the show back in 2001!

       Order Your T-Shirt Here!

In case you missed it…..this past Monday, MR. LOBO pitched a dark supernatural adventure film where a group of millennial’s search for an old TV studio gets them sucked into retro TV shows trying to break into the real world called “DARK CHANNELS” on the PITCH IT MOVIE PODCAST.

 

For this week’s CINEMA INSOMNIA EPISODE OF THE WEEK, we join other party guests and enter into Vincent Price’s HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1959)! We’ll be sharing memory-filled memorabilia featuring Mr. Vincent Price and HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL. We even have a special T-Shirt designed by MR. LOBO and DIXIE LOBO to go with this week’s Episode!
