Not many horror events in Jax this March, but quality beats quantity, and for horror fans, not much could top a restored “Creature from the Black Lagoon” introduced by the creature’s love interest herself! See details for the March 16 event below.
Friday, March 1. 9 pm.

Saturday, March 16. Screening of new restored 3-D “print” of horror classic “Creature from the Black Lagoon.” 7:15 pm. Introduced by the film’s star Julie Adams. Sun-Ray Cinema, 1028 Park Street, Jax. Filmed in Wakulla Springs, FL (underwater scenes), Silver Springs, FL, and Rice Creek near Palatka, FL. $15 on sale now. Geoff Andrews of TimeOut said in his review, “The routine story – members of a scientific expedition exploring the Amazon discover and are menaced by an amphibious gill man – is mightily improved by Arnold’s sure sense of atmospheric locations and by the often sympathetic portrait of the monster.” Click here to watch the trailer.
