Smokin’ Betty’s Events presents their first events, “Screams on Screen” for all lovers of 1950’s films and culture.
After months strategic planning, set-up, and establishment, Co-Proprietors, Jessi and Phil have finally turned their vision into a reality and have released to Adelaide their first of many unique and exciting events as part of their fresh new business, Smokin’ Betty’s Events.
Screams on Screen is a 1950’s inspired double feature sci-fi film night with as much of the added culture inbetween, taking place as a one night only show on Saturday April 10th 2010 at the Mercury Cinema, 13 Morphett St Adelaide SA 5000.
From an era where Sci-Fi films were so bad, they were good, Screams on Screen will show two of the most iconic films of this genre. Forbidden Planet (1953) and Robot Monster (1954) both possess everyones favourite qualities in a low budget film – the hilariously dodgy special effects, corny one-liners, monsters, robots & the classic kidnapping of the damsel in distress scenes!
Amid this will be a performance from Adelaide’s burlesque sensation, Miss Cherry Valens, Tommy Kaye from Six O Clock Rock Coast FM 88.7 will be presenting door prizes donated from generous sponsors. Moxie Minx, Adelaide’s finest pin-up designer is dressing Screams on Screen’s usherettes for the evening who will be directing patrons to their seats as done in the 50’s.
Leading sponsor, The Crown and Anchor Hotel (168 Grenfell St Adelaide SA 5000) will be hosting Screams on Screen’s official “After Movie Party”. The Mercury Cinema is also a licensed venue so be merry while you sit back and enjoy a night of classic cinematic entertainment. Suffice to say, it’s going to be a fantastic night.
Smokin’ Betty’s Events look forward to formulating more exciting, fresh and uniquely vintageand retro inspired events and music festivals locally and nationally later into 2010 and further into the future.
Proudly sponsored also by Caffe Primo Mawson Lakes, Adelaide comic Book Shop & Adelaide Theatre Costume Shop.
