Fantasmo Episode 65: The Price is Right Vol. 5

Hey Superfans!

It's once again time for another round of awesome Vincent Price films, as your Team Fantasmo proudly presents the 5th(!) edition of our always popular Price is Right series! This time around we're screening another one of Price's Poe collaborations with Roger Corman, as well as an unhinged horror comedy from legendary director Jacques Tourneur (Cat People). Best of all both feature all-star supporting casts which include the likes of Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, Basil Rathbone, and even Jack Nicholson. In addition to all this greatness you'll of course have the always delightful Team Fantasmo commentary, and a cornucopia of free snacks. So without any further ado, here are your full Episode 65 details:

When: Friday, September 23rd, 8:00 p.m.

Where: Chesapeake Central Library, 298 Cedar Road, Chesapeake, Va 23322


8:00 p.m.: The Comedy of Terrors (1963)

9:45 p.m.: The Raven (1963)

So there you have it, another fantastic of evening of Vincent Price classics . . . and a perfect warm up for Monster Fest 8 on October 1st (more details coming soon)! See you there!

Freeplay Update

Hey Superfans,
Due to the impending hurricane this weekend, Freeplay 2 has been canceled. Those keeping score at home may remember we had to cancel once before due to a snow event, but we came back stronger than ever! So keep watching the blog (and most importantly attending Fantasmo), and we'll keep you updated on a new date for Freeplay 2. In the meantime have a safe, and hopefully uneventful weekend!

Freeplay Returns!

Hey Superfans!

Thanks to all of you who came out to our Planet of the Apes marathon this past weekend! It was a blast, and you can look forward to more of these series type mararthons in the future : )

Not content to take a rest, we'll be back with another full day of action on August 27th for our second annual Freeplay event! If you missed it last year, Freeplay is a full day and evening filled with classic video game consoles, arcade machines, movies, and guest speakers. If you miss going into the arcades of the 80's, it will be a true trip down memory lane . . . and if you missed it the first time around you can now experience what all the fuss was about!

The fine folks of South Eastern Virginia Gaming make this event possible, and have a full list of games up at their site (with more to come). The gaming and programs will run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., after which the Library will close. We'll reopen at 7:00 p.m. for a special evening Fantasmo featuring Tron Legacy at 8:00 p.m. and Scott Pilgrim at 10:00 p.m.

As an added bonus we'll also be featuring our own Library developed game, $ave $teve, throughout the day. If you play it here on the day of Freeplay you'll get a free t-shirt and be registered for a chance to win an iPad (for adults) or Nintendo 3DS (for kids). Life doesn't get any better than that!

So come out and join your Team Fantasmo for a full day of free gaming, free game movies, and free game programs . . . you can leave your quarters at home! See you there!
