State of the Arts: Savoy Theater
Montpelier’s Savoy Theater kicks off the second edition of its Sci Fi July series over the Fourth of July weekend with two scary monster flicks: Ridley Scott’s Alien on July 4-5 and John Carpenter’s The Thing on July 5-6. The series that puts speculative classics back on the big screen will also feature Fahrenheit 451, Barbarella, A Clockwork Orange and more, with matinees added to the late-night screenings. (Check out the 1979 Australian cult movie Mad Max [July 25-26] for tips on how to survive after gas becomes the most precious substance on Earth.) The Savoy still seeks sponsors for the series -- for info and full schedule, see www.savoytheater.com.
