Reel History: Movie Monsters
Friday, October 25, 2019
Enjoy a special night of movies, popcorn and history at the Edina History Museum!
From the first silent flickers of motion captured in the 1890s until today, cinema screens have been bringing hideous, terrifying and altogether monstrous creatures to life. From the gothic monsters of the 1930s to the atomic mutants of the 1950s and beyond, movie monsters tap into timeless fears, while also revealing a great deal about the time and culture in which they were created. Join filmmaker and historian Alex Weston for a night of film clips exploring the cultural history behind some of the most famous monsters of filmland. It will thrill you. It may shock you. It might even — horrify you.
This program will show some clips from movies that were rated "PG-13" "R" by the MPAA.
