"This event has ended"

At Toronto's Revue Cinema last night played Edward D. Wood's "best of": Glen or Glenda (1953) and Plan 9 From Outer Space (1959).

I did not know this show was going on until it was going on: a certain tweet.

No worry. I saw both pictures at the Bloor Cinema back in the 1980s. Not only did I get my essential fix but I hit that rite of passage: seeing Wood flicks on the big screen with an audience.

It would have been nice to attend. Not only was there a panel discussion, there was a drag show. A drag show? I have no idea why such a display would take place at an event where Glen or Glenda is screened.

Like the sausage company says, that's the best of the worst. Why, it was only a few days back I caught myself muttering, "Turn off your electrode gun! NOO!!"
