Matinee (1993)

PG 01/29/1993 (US) ComedyDrama 1h 39m

Lawrence Woolsey presents the end of civilization as we know it. Make that... Proudly Presents!


A showman introduces a small coastal town to a unique movie experience and capitalizes on the Cuban Missile crisis hysteria with a kitschy horror extravaganza combining film effects, stage props and actors in rubber suits in this salute to the B-movie.
