Howdy, Strangers! Thanks to all of you who joined us for Italian Space Opera night on Movie Night last night. It was a good one. We got up to 10 viewers at one point which is pretty good for our goofy little show.
Next episode we’ll be going back to Tokusatsu territory (see Episode 16 – ED) with American dubs of the second Gamera film Gamera .vs. Barugon (1966), and the giant monster revenge tale Majin the Monster of Terror (1966). These two were originally shown as a double-feature in the states back in 1966.
You can blame Sandy Frank for Gamera and American International Pictures for Majin. We hope to see you there.
Movie Night #16 premiers on January 9th and is an all sci-fi extravaganza. We’ll be watching Prince of Space, which is really two Planet Prince tokusatsu films edited together for American audiences, and the first two episodes of Captain Z-Ro (wikipedia), the coulda-been American Doctor Who.
This time we’re using Eventbrite for virtual ticketing- but don’t worry, Movie Night is and will always remain free.
NOTE: For the first time, Movie Night will begin at 8:00pm instead of our previous start time of 5:30pm Pacific.
