• Film Night at BSFS. 7:00-9:30pm. Lovecraft based Film "Die Farbe" also known as the "Color From Space". This recent B/W film is in both German and English. Kick off the Halloween Season with this Lovecraftian horror on our main 10 ft screen. There are many rave reviews of this film such as The Innsmouth free press saying, "This is a great movie. It ’s exceptionally Lovecraftian and a cinematic treat for both Mythos fans and those new to the cosmic horror of HPL. I cannot recommend this film highly enough." (this screening is free and open to public) Watch the trailer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0lRP-00BgI We will also screen a few Halloween Season related shorts...
