Proudly noting it was “shot on location in less than a week,” Robot Monster is the most demented, delirious, and delightful 3D film of the Golden Age (it’s from 1953), a hoot to rival the better-known Creature from the Black Lagoon for pure unintentional hilarity. A cosmic catastrophe has wiped out humanity, and now the last six survivors must outwit that strangely iconic alien menace, Ro-Man. Taking orders from the pitiless Great Guidance, Ro-Man wavers in his pursuit of human annihilation when he falls in love with a girl. Can dashing young Roy save her? Is the suspense killing you yet? Slip on those red and cyan glasses (provided free with your ticket) and see things you have never seen before in only one less dimension than life itself! The Robot Monster program comes with the original 1953 3D prologue called "Stardust in Your Eyes" as well as a new introductory short called "Saving Slick" (in 2D) which gives context to the prologue and the preservation of the feature film.
