Just because Lost Films is done for the summer doesn’t mean incredible movie events aren’t still going on around the Harrisburg area. In fact, there are three different events that I strongly urge you all to check out if you get the chance:
Fristly, and easily the geekiest of these, is BLOB FEST in Phoenixville:
From Friday July 13-Saturday July 14, the town of Pheonixville, PA will be celebrating it’s most famous cinematic export: THE BLOB. Events include a parade of fire extinguishers, re-enactments, concerts and of course a film festival not only showing “The Blob,” but also fanmade tributes. Phoenixville is a lovely little town too, so this will be a blast, I promise.
Before Lost Films begins again in the fall, you might want to check out Moviate!
Here’s their outdoor filmseries schedule, which is pretty incredible:
July 7: Breakfast at Tiffany’s
July 21: Meatballs
August 4: Rear Window
August 18: Cry Baby
September 1: It Came From Outer Space in 3-D, with LIVE Theremin soundtrack!
A $5 donation at the door goes directly to the in-person filmmaker and hosting venue.
Screenings at the Mantis Collective are held at 202 North Street, Harrisburg.
The Side Street Cinema is located at the corner of Green and Cumberland streets in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in the Salvation Army Parking Lot.
The Gettysburg Majestic has started a weekly classic film series, and if you get the chance to see any of these movies on the big screen, consider yourself truly blessed:
July 11: Doctor Zhivago
July 18: At the Circus & A Night at the Opera
July 25: 2001: A Space Odyssey
August 1: “Dracula” & “Frankenstein”
August 8: The Searchers
August 15: The Women
August 22: The Sound of Music
August 29: Gone with the Wind
All movies start at 7:30pm at a cost of $5.50. They have awesome concessions there, including items I cannot recommend while a student/employee of Messiah College.
See you at the movies!
