Crazy Happenings in the South Bay

Crazy Happenings in the South Bay

As summer fades and the leaves (well, palm fronds) begin to fall and the colors of the trees change (well, brown-er), enigmatic South Bay impresario Noah K presents "Fright Night L.A." Tonight's titanic double-bill: Robot Monster (1953), the ageless story of global annihilation and the love of a robot-headed gorilla for the last teen girl on earth, and The Mask (1961), a timeless tale of archaeologists digging where they shouldn't. Both films are presented in 3-D, with glasses going to the first 300 ticketholders, which seems like a lot until one considers the Grand seats over 1,600. Also: a performance by horror/punk merchants Order of the Fly, and the Rubenesque burlesque of Miss Bonnie Delight. There's also a raffle from which you could win a dead body; "free Toyota/free Toy Yoda" schemes notwithstanding, this could be the body of a fly or a jackalope, so cross fingers accordingly.
