FORBIDDEN ZONE - Live Shadowcast 30th Anniversary Screening with Richard Elfman! Mondo Celluloid - Friday, June 22, 2012 - Art Theatre - Long Beach
April 29th, 2012
Join us on June 22 as we sing HAPPY 30TH BIRTHDAY to one of the greatest cult classics ever - 1982’s insane, unique, hilarious, and utterly brilliant FORBIDDEN ZONE!
Notable as being our very first Mondo Midnight selection at The Art Theatre of Long Beach, FORBIDDEN ZONE is the inspired brainchild of Richard Elfman, founding member of the legendary Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, who along with writer Matthew Bright (who would later helm the 1996 cult classic “Freeway”) mixed in everything from Max Fleisher to Cab Calloway to Josephine Baker to unleash a musical unlike any the world had ever seen. Mix in a typically masterful score by Elfman brother Danny (who makes a fan-favorite appearance…), a dancing frog in a tuxedo, a gorilla, an ex-queen (EX-QUEEN!?!!), and a sex-crazed kingdom ruled by the weirdest royal family in celluloid history, and you have the movie that Film Threat called “The Citizen Kane of Underground Movies.”
We’re throwing out all the stops to celebrate thirty years of Forbidden Zone- Richard Elfman will once again be in attendance (his third time at The Art! - thanks Richard!!), but we’re not stopping there! For the first time ever, we are proud to present Forbidden Zone with a LIVE SHADOWCAST!! We’re giving this midnight gem the “Rocky Horror” treatment it has long deserved by welcoming a live cast that has christened themselves “CELL 63,” featuring members of “Rocky Horror” casts from both Long Beach and Los Angeles!
