Morning After Talk-Back Bruch: Matinee
September 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$15 – $20
Following up on our September Florida Summer Cinema screening of Matinee, Gulfport Historical Society offers a brunch that will stimulate your tastebuds and your brain!
Amanda Hagood, Instructor in Animal Studies at Eckerd College, will speak about Matinee and the making of Cold War era science fiction films. She will discuss the often ingenious techniques B-movie filmmakers used to create a wildly creepy-crawly experience for their viewers and explore the connections between bug-fueled fears at the movies and the geopolitical anxieties of the Cold War. There will be plenty of hilarious–um, I mean terrifying!–examples to share.
As we listen and discuss, we will enjoy a brunch prepared by Gulfport’s own Chef Morgan Banno. Mimosas and Bloody Marys are a given.
This event helps raise funds to provide more great programming from Gulfport Historical Society. Tickets $15 for members; $20, not-yet-members. Doors open at 10 AM. Registration is required so we can plan appropriately.
