Creature from the Black Lagoon

Introduced by Mallory O’Meara, author of The Lady from the Black Lagoon, followed by a book signing

Dir. Jack Arnold. 1954, 79 mins. Restored 3-D DCP. With Richard Carlson, Julie Adams, Richard Denning. In this classic Universal Pictures monster movie, scientists drug and ensare “the creature,” who becomes enamored with head scientist David Reed’s (Richard Carlson) female assistant, Kay (Julie Adams) while in captivity. When the lonely creature, “a living amphibious missing link,” escapes from detainment, he kidnaps the object of his affection, setting into motion a rescue mission, as well as a campaign to cast the ominous creature back to the depths from whence he came. Beloved for its brilliantly designed monster, as well as for its trailblazing use of 3-D, Creature From the Black Lagoonremains a touchstone of Hollywood horror, influencing the likes of Guillermo del Toro’s recent The Shape of Water. Followed by a book signing with author Mallory O’Meara, author of The Lady From the Black Lagoon.
