The Attack of the B’s strikes again this summer at the Tropic Cinema! Curated by John Abramson and hosted as always by Chris and Lora, the series will feature a camp classic every Saturday morning through August 3.
In “The Giant Gila Monster,” a small town in Texas finds itself under attack from … a hungry, fifty-foot-long gila monster. No longer content to forage in the desert, the giant lizard (played by an actual gila monster stomping around on miniature sets) begins devouring motorists and train passengers before descending upon the town itself. Only Chase Winstead, a quick-thinking mechanic who spends much of the movie breaking into song, can save the town from being wiped out.
All Attack of the B’s screenings start at 10:30 a.m. and are accompanied by pre-show shorts: campy educational films, period commercials, vintage trailers and cartoons, drive-in ads and more!
