Once again, the Mahoning Drive-In in Lehighton, PA will be highlighting classic monsters in their Universal Monster Mash weekend. Boris Karloff, appropriately, headlines both nights. Most of the main monster franchises are represented, with the Poe-inspired Rue Morgue expanding the Universal Horror brand beyond the monsters (last year, they included The Black Cat).

Did you go both days?

They should do a vintage sci-fi weekend with 50's movies.

  • So terrifying only screams can describe it!

I don't know how they paid the licensing fees, film rentals, insurance and other overhead expensive for 6 Universal movies when only 83 people attended? ($10-20 a head.)

When the sun goes down

The monsters come out!

I did do both days. Always a lot of fun. I have no idea what the attendance was, but the lot looked pretty full on both days (although some people didnít stay for all three movies each night). Others show up with campers and tents to stay the night.

Itís always great running into old friends.

Orlok must have been left over from their Nosferatu 100th anniversary showing earlier in the season.  :)

Plus, there were two posters this year

If I lived an hour closer, I'm sure I'd go to more events. That Philly Friday traffic can be a real pain, but it's worth it once a year for Universal monsters under the stars!
