Held at the very movie theater in the Philadelphia suburb of Phoenixville that was attacked by the gelatinous monster in the 1958 classic, BlobFest is a celebration of the film and all things great from the 1950s. The Fest kicks off Friday night with its annual Running Out Re-enactment, in which you can run for your life from the Blob, just like theater patrons did 1958! Plus, there’s costume and trivia contests, rockabilly music and classic cars at the day long street fair on Saturday. There’ll be four screenings of The Blob over the weekend, three of them paired up as double-features with Invasion Of The Saucer Men and 13 Ghosts. (And we’ll be tweeting the event as well…)
