Silver Screen Spookshow: King Kong (1933)
Saturday February 4, 2023 10:00 PM EST
CL Critic Curt Holman Recommends: A jungle adventure with groundbreaking special effects, the original King Kong was like the Avatar of 90 years ago. The giant ape smitten with Fay Wray (the original scream queen) remains an alternately fearsome and sympathetic figure almost a century later. Presented by the Silver Scream Spook Show, a live, burlesque tribute to the classic horror hosts of yesteryear, so expect lots of ape puns.-CH
From the venue:A film crew goes to a tropical island for an exotic location shoot and discovers a colossal ape who takes a shine to their female blonde star. He is then captured and brought back to New York City for public exhibition.
