This month, Manager of Public Engagement Robert Rutherford is joined by guest Kelly Sue DeConnick, writer of some of the most exciting titles in modern comics, including the Carol Danvers rebranding as Captain Marvel, the Eisner-nominated Pretty Deadly, and Bitch Planet. Kelly Sue chose this month’s selection, Tremors, a loving nod to the creature features that dominated cinema projectors in the 1950s and a fantastic touchstone in Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon games.

Here are a handful of program elements that you can expect to see this Friday night:

  • Pre-film introduction with Robert Rutherford, MoPOP’s Manager of Public Engagement, and special guest, Kelly Sue DeConnick.
  • Cheap-as-heck quarantine cosplay – Here’s some graboid inspiration
  • Cocktails, mocktails, and beer pairing recommendations.
    • Cocktail pairing — What to do with graboids once they’ve been vanquished? Here’s a recipe for a Grey Gusano to make the most of all of those worms!
    • Mocktail pairing — Get your feet up off the floor with a virgin margarita.
    • Beer pairing — Grab a can of Coors Banquet and tip back your hat, naturally.
  • Chat with the host and guest and other fans during the film.
  • Post-film discussion on the film’s enduring influence on the genre and why it deserves a spot on our list 100+ Horror Films to See Before You Die.
