SUPER-8 AIRPLANE MOVIE MADNESS January 8th at The Way Out Club in St. Louis
“Flying a plane is no different than riding a bicycle, just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the spokes”
Do you like movies about gladiators? Well, you’re out of luck but you won’t have to speak jive to enjoy SUPER-8 AIRPLANE MOVIE MADNESS January 8th at The Way Out Club. For this month’s monthly festival of Super-8 Sound films condensed from features (they average 15 minutes in length), we’re showing all four movies from the beloved AIRPORT series from the 1970’s. Those are AIRPORT (1970), AIRPORT ’75, AIRPORT ’77, and AIRPORT ’79 THE CONCORDE. Then we’ll be topping off those airborne disasters with the 1980 spoof AIRPLANE!……. and don’t call me Shirley!
“There’s no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you’ll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane”
The earthbound films we’re showing on January 8th are: SON OF DR. JEKYLL, BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES, Lon Chaney in MAN MADE MONSTER, FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD, Superman in the 1943 Max Fleischer cartoon THE MUMMY STRIKES, Red Skelton in THE FULLER BRUSH MAN, Frank Langella as DRACULA, the ‘Fistful of Yen’ segment of KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE, and George C. Scott in HARDCORE (this last film is dubbed into French but we will have an actual French teacher translating the film live as it plays!)
These will all be projected on a large screen at the Way Out Club on Tuesday January 8th (We’re usually the first Tuesday but this month we’re pushing it back a week) Admission is only THREE BUCKS!!!! There are yummy Way-Out pizzas available and if you’ve picked the wrong week to quit drinking, there’s a full bar. The Way Out Club is at 2525 S. Jefferson in South St. Louis (at Gravois) and the show begins at 8pm.
