The American Cinematheque, in conjunction with Cinematic Void, is hauling out a pair of 3-D monster flicks for an evening of frights and yuks. The first item on the bill is Jaws 3-D, the 1983 threequel to the original summer blockbuster starring everyone’s favorite great white shark. The bottom half of the double feature consists of A*P*E (Attacking Primate Monster, in case you were wondering), a 1976 shoestringer starring one of King Kong’s more unfortunately cousins. For its 1982 grindhouse release, this South Korean-American co-production went by the title Attack of the Giant Horny Gorilla, which summarizes the plot quite nicely.

Aero Theatre, 1328 Montana Ave., Santa Monica; Sat., July 6, 7:30 p.m.; $15. (323) 466-3456, americancinemathequecalendar.com.
