CL Critic Curt Holman Recommends: Atlanta’s live, burlesque tribute to classic TV horror hosts (featuring a kid-friendly matinee) returns with 1958’s effectively cheesy sci-fi flick The Blob, about a shapeless ooze that runs amok in a small town. Fun fact: when future screen icon Steve McQueen filmed his role as the teenage hero, he was in his late 20s. — CH
From the venue:A drive-in favorite, this sci-fi classic follows teenagers Steve (Steven McQueen) and his best girl, Jane (Aneta Corseaut), as they try to protect their hometown from a gelatinous alien life form that engulfs everything it touches. The first to discover the substance and live to tell about it, Steve and Jane witness the blob destroying an elderly man and grow to a terrifying size. But no one else has seen the goo, and policeman Dave (Earl Rowe) refuses to believe the kids without proof.
