Friday Classic Movie Matinee

Come visit us every Friday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. for the showing of a great classic movie.

October is MONSTER month!  On October 16th, come see Lon Chaney, Jr., in the WOLFMAN.  Mr. Chaney tries to help a damsel in distress and sustains a bite from a werewolf. Doing the things a werewolf does is bad enough, but Mr. Chaney knows he is a werewolf and has to spend all of his normal waking hours wallowing in mental agony, knowing he can do nothing to contain the monster lurking within.

Prepare to be scared on October 23rd, as we present THE MUMMY.  Boris Karloff stars in this 1932 horror film as a revived ancient Egyptian priest.

For the last of our monster movies, visit us on Friday, October 30th, and watch THE INVISIBLE MAN.  Claude Rains stars as a scientist who finds a way of becoming invisible, but in doing so, becomes murderously insane.

We hope to see you every Friday!

October Classics Book Club–Frankenstein

Join us October 27, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. as we read and share our thoughts about Mary Shelley’s enduring legacy, Frankenstein.


Few creatures of horror have seized readers’ imaginations and held them for so long as the anguished monster of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The story of Victor Frankenstein’s terrible creation and the havoc it caused has enthralled generations of readers and inspired countless writers of horror and suspense. Considering the novel’s enduring success, it is remarkable that it began merely as a whim of Lord Byron’s.  “We will each write a story,” Byron announced to his next-door neighbors, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin and her lover Percy Bysshe Shelley. —
