Our pre-movie short this month will be "The Crimson Permanent Assurance" .. Swash buckling action from the accounting department on the high seas of financial doom! (Believe me .. this is a REAL movie gem)
Quick Summary of "Forbidden Planet":
When Commander JJ Adams and his crew are sent to investigate the silence from a planet inhabited by terror formers, they find all but two have died. Dr. Morbius and his daughter Altaira have somehow survived a hideous monster which roams the planet. Unknown to Adams, Morbius has made a discovery, and has no intention of sharing it (or his daughter!) with anyone.
Forbidden Planet was first released across the U. S. on April 1, 1956 in CinemaScope, Metrocolor, and in some theaters, stereophonic sound, either by the magnetic or Perspecta processes. The Hollywood premiere was held at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, and Robby the Robot was on display in the lobby. Forbidden Planet ran every day at Grauman's Theater through the following September.

There will be a silent auction and it's looking like it will be a good one. Members and friends have donated some impressive things. Maplewood Farm has donated a one year family season pass. WOW, Wow, wow!!! I will be donating a couple of rare comic books, a Electric Keyboard and much more. Proceeds from donations will help you create your own B movies in the future. If you have anything you would like to add to the auction, please contact Jimi Stewart through the meetup to arrange things.
See you there!
