Drive-In Super Monster-Rama - Riverside Drive In Theatre - Vandergrift, PA 9/9 & 10


This way cool event is back in its 5th year!

What is Drive-In Super Monster Rama you ask, cool ghouls? Dig it!

The ultimate trip back in time to the grand old days of drive-in cinema is back! DRIVE-IN SUPER MONSTER-RAMA is two nights of classic horror and science fiction 35mm prints (including some new prints, and several in Technicolor and Scope) presented at an authentic, hospitable drive-in movie theater. There will be two big shows on two consecutive nights which will start at dusk and go on until really late into the night! This is the fifth year in a row that we are hosting such an event, so we encourage all East Coast (or wherever you are!) drive-in movie fanatics to attend and experience something you'll never forget! What could be better than a weekend getaway topped off with two nights of classic monster movies on the big outdoor screen?

We realize that everything is so expensive these days, but admission is (still) only $10 a person each night! Plus, children 12 and under are free with parent or adult guardian (parental guidance is of course suggested, but this is in case you want to put the little tykes to sleep in the backseat instead of hiring a babysitter). How can you beat that? The Riverside's concession stand is loaded with reasonably priced goodies that patrons continue to rave about, including hot foods, hot and cold drinks, candy, popcorn and much, much more! Their concession stand always gets compliments, and it's one of the things that keeps fans of this event wanting to come back for more.

We guarantee that this will most likely be your only chance to see so many of these type of films on the drive-in screen all in one big weekend, so make plans to attend. You won't be sorry! Where else are you going to see the likes of Vincent Price (Happy 100th Birthday Vinnie!), Boris Karloff, Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Barbara Steele, Robert Quarry and Cameron Mitchell at a real drive-in theater, all in one weekend? Nowhere else, that's where!

On Friday, September 9, the features will be BLACK SABBATH, THE LAST MAN ON EARTH, CASTLE OF BLOOD and ISLAND OF THE DOOMED.

On Saturday, September 10, the features will be THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES, DR. PHIBES RISES AGAIN, COUNT YORGA, VAMPIRE and I, MONSTER.

Each night we will also present an array of vintage exploitation and monster movies trailers in between the features which we know you will just love! We'll also have cartoons, classic concession stand adverts, and a few surprise short subjects!

  2. Its heartening to know drive-ins still exist. I have fond memories of Summer nights at the drive-in, watching some great movies. What a great event. I hope someone goes and posts about it for us.
