Aug 22: "House of Wax" at the Amazing Garden

The Amazing Garden (corner of Columbia and Carroll Streets) will host an evening of "Movies in the Garden" on Saturday, August 22 at 8:30 p.m. Bring a chair or blanket (and bug repellent) and join us for the 1953 Vincent Price horror classic, "House of Wax."

Vincent Price always excels as an obsessed madman, and he’s at his best in this suspenseful thriller, stalking lovely Phyllis Kirk, aided by mute brute Charles Bronson. Originally shown in 3-D, this story plays well as a flat print on the strength of its story and characters. Add a star for the haunting set and props in his eerie Victorian wax museum! Yes, he’s stealing corpses from the morgue and dipping them in his waxy fondue pot. Nostalgic fun for young and old, you’ll scream when his fire-scarred face is revealed. With Frank Lovejoy, Carolyn Jones.
