This past Tuesday, we unleashed the first episode of our new live-on-the-internet YouTube series, Milwaukee Record LiveSCREAM Theater. The eternally awesome and witchy Tigernite joined host Matt Wild (that’s me) to watch the 1968 classic Night Of The Living Dead. If you tuned in and commented along with us, thanks! If you didn’t, we’re sorry about that night’s Brewers game, too.
Yes, as part of the 2019 Milwaukee Film Festival (tickets are on sale NOW!), we’re spending the entire month of October bringing you a live viewing party of classic public domain horror and sci-fi films. Want to join the fun? Just tune in via the Milwaukee Record YouTube channel and chime in there, or on Facebook or Twitter (#MRLST). Seen these movies 8,000 times already? Who cares! It’s all about watching brain-eating/blood-sucking monsters together.
Here’s the rest of the schedule:
Tuesday, October 8
ATTACK OF THE GIANT LEECHES (1959) w/ Jack Packard and Maggie Iken
Tuesday, October 15
DEMENTIA 13 (1963) w/ cast and crew of The Field (Tate Bunker, Kara Mulrooney, Tim Higgins, Mark Borchardt)
Tuesday, October 22
THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN’T DIE (1962) w/ Mack Bates
Monday, October 28
KILLERS FROM SPACE (1954) w/ Rick Katschke and Rob Wieland
Big thanks to Tigernite for joining us for episode 1! (We promise to have some sound kinks worked out by next week.) Watch the whole thing below!
(Oh, and the amazing theme song is “Empty Arrows & Exit Signs” by Farms In Trouble!)
