Oct 19

Something wicked has been awakened at the Special Collections Building, set loose from the Brown Media Archives for those brave enough to watch. Dr. Speculo is broadcasting through time and space to bring us the most spine-chilling B-movie from 1959: The Killer Shrews!

Join us on the dead center of the Special Collections front lawn as we recreate the late-night horror hosts of midnights' past. Popcorn is free, picnic blankets and lawn chairs are encouraged!

All creatures and monsters are welcome at this free screening; no scaredy cats allowed! 

7:00 pm Richard B. Russell Special Collections Libraries , Front Lawn
