Super-8 PETER CUSHING Movie Madness February 4th at The Way Out Club in St. Louis
Peter Cushing (1913-1994) was one of the most respected and important actors in the horror and fantasy film genres. To his many fans, the British star is recognized for his work with Hammer Films which began in the late 1950’s. Cushing’s best-known roles outside of Hammer include Grand Moff Tarkin in STAR WARS (1977) and Dr. Who in DR. WHO AND THE DALEKS (1965) and DALEKS INVASION EARTH 2150 AD (1966). Peter Cushing truly was The Gentle Man of Horror and SUPER-8 PETER CUSHING MOVIE MADNESS will be a great way to celebrate his career.
