Your Friendly Neighborhood Library is (sort of) proud to announce the latest and greatest films in cinema history (and by "Latest and Greatest" we mean "Old and Awful"). This month: This Island, Earth! A group of scientists are captured and brought aboard a flying saucer where the Metalunans (the aliens) make them build weapons to help ward off the evil Zagons and Mu-tants! This 1955 Technicolor classic has everything that makes a bad movie night feature so terrifically terrible: spaceships, rubber suited aliens, screaming damsels in distress, and more. Come join us for a movie that truly blurs the line between awful and awesome!
