GiantspiderinvasionIf there’s a favorite time at Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill it’s during Quizzies and the Greeley Grindhouse.

Greeley Grindhouse will show “The Giant Spider Invasion” on Thursday, July 18th at 8:00 PM. This creepy crawly movie will keep you on your toes as spiders invade.

This low-budget 1975 film focuses on giant spiders that terrorize the town of Merrill, Wisconsin and the surrounding area. Starring Alan Hale Jr. (The Skipper from Gilligan’s Island), this movie revolves around a  spider invasion which occurs when what appears to be a meteorite crashes down in rural Wisconsin. It then spawns spiders of different sizes. The invasion, the result of an inter-dimensional gateway, is thwarted when Dr. Vance and Dr. Langer struggle, but manage to close off the gateway. This drains the spiders of their energy and causes them to melt into puddles of disgusting sludge.

The iconic theatrical poster art was a throwback to the giant monster movies of the 1950’s. The film received a considerable run and became one of the fifty top grossing films of that year. After a three-time ABC television network run, the movie achieved additional exposure several years later when it was featured in a 1997 episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K). It’s now regarded as a cult classic in the B film realm.

Mark your calendars and join Greeley and the movie mogul, Mac Bell, as he entertains everyone with Smack TV once again.

Have a great week, and we’ll see ya there!
