Champ Day Movie Encore!
September 27, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
See the sci-fi cult favorite “Beast from 20,000 Fathoms,” by stop-motion animation master Ray Harryhausen, on classic reel-to-reel 16mm. It inspired the original “Godzilla” and was the first movie to address the Manhattan Project. It even has Champ lore connections.
If you missed its Aug. 2nd “Champ Day” screening in Port Henry, catch it Saturday, September 27th, at 7 pm at the Newman Center in Plattsburgh (90 Broad St. across from PSU’s Myers Fine Arts). Free admission. Another Harryhausen epic, “Sinbad & the Eye of the Tiger,” will follow at 9 p.m. as a special bonus attraction (also on 16mm). For more info, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
