Visitors are encouraged to arrive early and bring their own food and drink (adult beverages are permitted). 

The series kicks off Friday, June 4 with a B-movie classic, "Attack of the Crab Monsters." Tickets can be purchased online.

In the 1957 film, a team of scientists land on a tropical island to study the effects of radiation fallout. When the island begins to break off into the ocean, giant crustaceans begin calculated attacks on the humans, forcing them to fight for their lives.

July 2 – "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians"
Aug. 6– "Alligator People"
