Tonight’s featured artist : Kosi – “She’s more than just a drama queen. She’s got piercing eyes and a voice that’s larger than her body. But, small as she is, she won’t fit in a box. She switches styles more quickly than you can follow. First she’s jazz, then she’s blues, then she’s rock, but always powerful. You definitely want to hear this girl sing… if you can handle it.”

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) at The Senator
Showing at 10AM
The Senator Theatre
5904 York Rd, Baltimore
“This genuine SF classic (1956) says a good deal more about the McCarthyist hysteria of the early 50s than about the danger of invasion from outer space by soul-stealing ‘pods.’ Don Siegel’s superb little effort, with its matter-of-fact isolation of hero Kevin McCarthy (ironic, no?) from the smarmy complacency of a small town gone to hell—and way beyond—points the way to his gripping action films of the 60s and 70s (Madigan, Coogan’s Bluff, Dirty Harry).” (Don Druker, Chicago Reader)
1956 Dir. Don Siegel. 1.85:1 B/W DCP 80 min.
