FREE screening: Invasion of the Body Snatchers at The Lensic

Looking for something fun and creepy to do to celebrate Halloween tonight that doesn’t involve wearing costumes, braving the cold, or gorging on candy?

Go to The Lensic for their FREE screening of the 1956 classic science fiction horror film Invasion of the Body Snatchers!

Starring Kevin McCarthy and Dana Wynter, directed by Don Siege, and produced by Walter Wanger, this iconic black and white film is set in in the fictional California town of Santa Mira and tells the story of an extraterrestrial invasion from alien plant spores that grow into large seed pods, each one capable of reproducing a duplicate replacement copy of each human.  The duplicates take on the physical characteristics, memories, and personalities of each sleeping person lying next to it, but the facsimiles lack any human emotion.  As the story unfolds, a local doctor discovers the invasion and attempts to thwart it.

Show time: 7:00 pm
