What could be cooler in the world than this…Universal Pictures Creature From The Black Lagoon is coming to Chicago to be screened in 3D from a 35mm print and with star Julie Adams in attendance. Ms. Adams will be signing autographs and participating in a Q & A session after the film. The screening will take place on Saturday, September 28th at the Patio Theater in Chicago. There will be two screenings of the film, 2 pm and 7 pm, and Ms. Adams will be there for both screenings. I’ve met a lot of celebrities in the horror genre and I’m not easily starstruck, but having Ms. Adams (One of the last remaining stars from Universal’s classic horror) be in attendance and perform a Q & A for Creature From The Black Lagoon is a one in a lifetime opportunity, so make your way to Chicago to show some support for a classic film and a classy lady as well. You can get more information about the show down below.
Horror Society will be on the scene covering the event so be sure to check back here for coverage and pics from the show!
