Thanks to everyone who came out for our BIG reboot of FantaSci, and our special sci-fi edition of Fantasmo! It was a LOT of fun to host the event again after a bit of a hiatus, and we look forward to having it here at the library for many more years to come. Of course for July we’re back to business as usual, and to continue our awesome summer schedule we’ll be doing a bit of classic horror. Better still it’s our annual tribute to horror icon Vincent Price! As anyone who regularly attends Fantasmo knows, our Price nights are always special occasions . . . and this one is more special than most! This time around we’re screening perhaps the most well-known Price horror classic, the legendary House of Wax. Without question the ultimate of all wax museum horror movies! As if that weren’t enough, we’ll also be screening the rarely seen The Last Man On Earth. This is actually the first (and most faithful) screen adaptation of Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend. It would later be made into awesome The Omega Man with Charlton Heston and the well-intentioned, but so-so I Am Legend with Will Smith. Either way, this one’s amazing! Without any further ado here are your full Episode 47 details:
When: Friday, July 17th

So there you have it, our next amazing Price night! You dare not miss these classics on our Pricetastically huge screen . . . the way they were meant to be seen! See you there!!
