    Riverside Drive-In Theatre to Host 2nd Annual APRIL GHOULS DRIVE-IN MONSTER-RAMA!


    VANDERGRIFT, PA — For eight years in a row, we’ve brought back the fun in going to the drive-in, with our annual, award-winning September DRIVE-IN SUPER MONSTER-RAMA event. Now, for a second year in a row, the Riverside Drive-In Theatre is bringing the same retro thrills to their giant outdoor screen with the 2014 APRIL GHOULS DRIVE-IN MONSTER-RAMA! Like the September spectacular, this is two nights of classic horror and monster 35mm prints presented at an authentic drive-in movie theater. There will be two big shows on two consecutive nights which will start at dusk and go on until really late into the night! We have some very special treats in store, so we encourage all drive-in movie fanatics to travel from near and far, as you’re not going to find anything else like it, anywhere!

    What could be better than a weekend getaway topped off with two nights of classic monster movies on the big outdoor screen? We realize that everything is so expensive these days, but admission is still only $10 a person each night! Plus, children 12 and under are free with parent or adult guardian. How can you beat that? The Riverside’s concession stand is loaded with reasonably priced goodies, including hot foods, hot and cold drinks, candy, popcorn and much more!

    Free presentation on Waltham’s first theater building


    WALTHAM, MA — The Music Hall Building of Waltham Massachusetts is an iconic part of Waltham’s history. Constructed in 1880, the building was the first of four theater buildings which would be constructed in Waltham throughout the next fifty years. From the day of its opening as a vaudeville opera house in the 1880s, to its closing as a silent movie house in the early 1930’s, the venue served the city in a variety of ways. Like many theaters across the country, the Music Hall was an ornately designed building which brought a wide variety of entertainment to the Waltham community. The theater showcased everything from local talent to nationally acclaimed vaudevillians, Broadway shows, opera companies, etc. It was also the first place in Waltham to view the new moving picture medium.
