This Saturday: Lobotronic Film Show And Halloween Costume Contest
As Mad Magazine's William F. Gaines used to say, "the usual gang of idiots" who produce the KFJC Psychotronix Film Festival will proudly present our first extravaganza at San Leandro's historic Bal Theatre this Saturday.
As fate would have it, this ends up being a sadly appropriate choice of venue, since one of the super-fans of what we have been doing for the past two decades, our friend and colleague Irwin Swan, who resided with his late wife Colleen in San Leandro for many years, passed away last August. We miss Irwin and Colleen and dedicate this show to them.
Mr. Lobo of Cinema Insomnia hosts an evening of spooky schtick, peachy prizes, and dastardly duds while film collectors Sci-Fi Bob Ekman, Scott Moon and yours truly spin fun and freaky found films on 16mm: A.K.A. a cross-section of our checkered celluloid past - classic 1950's and 1960's commercials, trailers from bad movies, indescribably weird cartoons, actors in lizard, robot and spaceman suits, campy musical shorts and unintentionally hilarious educational films.
Special Guests include the ridiculously talented filmmaker, voice-over artist and musician (Mystic Knights Of Oingo Boingo) Ernie “Hardware Wars” Fosselius, Karen “Mrs. Grandpa Munster” Lewis and others will be on hand to judge a costume contest at 9:00 p.m.
Take the Insomniac Oath and be there for this mind blowing ALL AGES event for the Halloween Season! $10 ($9 if you come in costume).
The date: Saturday, October 16, 2010
The time: 7:30 p.m.
The place: The Bal Theatre, 14808 East 14th Street, San Leandro, CA 94578
