October Horror and SF Film-Fest in Lawrence

If you like old SF and horror flicks, you'll love Lawrence in October.

On Friday nights, the Lawrence Public Library is hosing a free classic science-fiction film series at 7:00pm in the Auditorium. First up (this Friday) is Forbidden Planet, then The Time Machine (1960), then 2001: A Space Odyssey, and finally The Andromeda Strain on the 23rd. Also don't forget that this weekend is the Friends of the Public Library Book Sale.

Just a couple blocks away, Java Break (my favorite dive coffee-shop) is hosting a classic horror film every Saturday night at midnight. Also free! Just buy a beverage. First movie (this Saturday) is Nosferatu, then The Little Shop of Horrors, then Lawrence's own Carnival of Souls, then the Vincent Price version of The House on Haunted Hill, and finally the original Night of the Living Dead on the 31st.

I think I'll try to hit up as many of these as possible - assuming I'll know others there!
