Famous Monsters And CAPT Present HI-FI SCI-FI INVASION On The Stage In LA
Like a 50’s B-Movie Drive-in experience come to life, cocktail culture goes cosmic in this show that features truly mad men! Captured Aural Phantasy Theater teams up with the legendary Famous Monsters of Filmland to present the HI-FI SCI-FI INVASION at the historic El Cid for 1 night only Sunday, December 7! Another in a continuing series of monthly live shows, we will be showcasing mid-century science fiction stories performed in our signature variety show/ old radio show style. The evening includes vintage sci-fi comic books brought to life on stage with original art, live sound effects and a live soundtrack. Classic tales by greats like Ray Bradbury are given an absurdist treatment for the 21st Century. Along with the multi-media sci-fi stories and comic book performances, the evening includes comedic acts, prizes and the finest live music. Spend the evening with Captured Aural Phantasy Theater for an out-of-this-world geek-fest!
HI-FI SCI-FI INVASION is especially important given that the founder of Famous Monsters, Forrest J Ackerman, coined the term “Sci-Fi!” This show presents science fiction LIVE with original projections, live effects and unique music. It marks the another in our exclusive collaboration with Famous Monsters magazine to bring their brand of classic horror and sci-fi to life on stage!
