Off topic. For fans of low-budget 1950s sci fi movies, The Blob is a classic. The blob arrives from outer space and proceeds to grow in size as it consumes people. A young Steve McQueen discovers how to halt the blob’s rampage.
In one famous scene, the blob appears in a crowded movie theater, and the panicked patrons run out the doors screaming in terror. The scene was filmed at the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, not far from where I live.
Each year, the theater holds Blobfest. On one night, during a showing of the movie, the audience screams and heads for the street. Too much fun.
If you are in the area, you may want to check Blobfest off on your bucket list. Here is the information. But don’t delay. All events sell out very quickly.
