Relive the days of true three-dimensional greatness with one of the all-time most unforgettable 3D movies of the ‘50s and one of Railroad Square Cinema‘s all-time biggest hits, Creature from the Black Lagoon!

A strange prehistoric beast lurks in the depths of the Amazonian jungle. A group of scientists try to capture the animal and bring it back to civilization for study. Bad idea! Except for the audience. Rated G. 79 min.
“It makes for solid horror-thrill entertainment.” —The Hollywood Reporter
“What distinguished Jack Arnold’s pictures from mutant spinoffs/ knockoffs is even more imperative to sci-fi today than it was in 1954: wonderment.” —Slant Magazine
“A classic horror that warms the heart.” —Empire Magazine
“The 3-D lensing adds to the eerie effects of the underwater footage, as well as to the monster’s several appearances on land. The below-water scraps between skin divers and the prehistoric thing are thrilling and will pop goose pimples on the susceptible fan.” —Variety
“Director Arnold was an early pioneer of the art of playing on the fears of the average human being—as Spielberg did in the seventies with Jaws and Spielberg was reportedly heavily influenced by the brooding, menacing style of Arnold’s atmospheric film… Strong on atmosphere and plot, but with a low budget, an excellent example of how to make a good monster movie.” —Phil Hardy
