The Theater in The Blob, Guest Blog

My son Mark sent me this photo he took with his phone. He’s on business. He said I could use it as a guest blog today. Thanks, Mark. I have to watch this classic film again. Here is the theater from the movie The Blob filmed in 1958. Phoenixville PA.

  1. I’m surprised that I do remember that theater. I can almost hear the screams of the panicked citizenry running from The Blob.

  5. What a fantastic shot! Love the foreboding sense of evening mist over that bright, funky facade . . .

  7. I’ve never seen The Blob – though interesting that they are currently playing Rocky Horror…
