The Movies

The Giant ClawFriday Night Feature - The Giant Claw

The Giant Claw is a gigantic birdlike creature from an antimatter galaxy. It's "as big as a battleship" and terrorizing the world. As Mitch and his mathematician girlfriend work feverishly on a plan to defeat this invincible enemy, the winged, alien monster from 17,000,000 B.C. makes its way to the Empire State Building in New York City. Considered to be one of the worst movies of all time, this 1957 sci-fi film is the perfect alien flick to kick-off our B-movie weekend!

Killer Klowns from Outer Space

Saturday Matinee - Killer Klowns from Outer Space

Saturday afternoon is the perfect time for Killer Klowns from Outer Space to descend on Wayne County Utah. This 1988 B-movie comedy horror has gained cult status. An army of aliens who look like circus clowns has arrived in the sleepy town of Crescent Cove to capture and harvest people. As locals begin to investigate, they're faced with ray guns that envelop people in cotton candy, balloon animal hunting dogs, and killer shadow puppets.

Plan 9 from Outer Space

Saturday Grand Finale - Plan 9 from Outer Space

A B-movie classic, Plan 9 from Outer Space features extraterrestrials seeking to stop humans from creating a doomsday weapon that could destroy the universe. The aliens resurrect the Earth's dead as zombies to create chaos.

Originally titled "Grave Robbers from Outer Space", this 1959 science fiction, horror film written and directed by Ed Wood is often referenced in pop culture. You'll leave the film quoting some of the worst dialog in film history.

The world's fastest parade (55 miles per hour) begins the festivities on Friday evening at the Chuckwagon Lodge and General Store in Torrey. This year's theme is "The Alien Invasion."
