Every monster needs a bride, or so the saying goes. Bela Lugosi (paid a paltry $1,000) stars here as Dr. Vornoff, a mad scientist who horribly burns lovely ladies with atomic radiation. Why would he do this? To create his own army of super creatures, of course (apparently Lugosi had never read a Captain America comic). He’s capably assisted by the mad beast Lobo (played by MST3K mainstay Tor Johnson) in an unclear quest for….something. Joel and the bots More »

Fri, Nov 28 thru Mon, Dec 1 -- Roll over to view showtimes.
The end of November brings many cherished traditions: Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends, shopping with the crazed masses on Black Friday, watching parades and football games, and gathering at the Colonial to watch one of the funniest (and most quotable) comedies of all time,“Monty Python and the Holy Grail!” Perhaps the Pythons’ finest film, this cult classic puts an absurdist spin on the King Arthur legend complete with silly swordplay, horseless horseplay, a killer bunny, and a band of knights More »

The holidays have inspired a number of life-affirming movies that celebrate the joys of this very special season.
