CRIME, COMIC BOOKS and COCKTAILS!

Need to continue the Noir Fest film festival in April? The NIGHT OF NOIR is your ticket.

Witness tales from the brutal pages of vintage crime comic books – exposed! – uncensored and LIVE! For 1 night only Sunday, May 3, Captured Aural Phantasy Theater blows a kiss to our hometown, Los Angeles, by blending hard-boiled culture and the absurd in an evening of performances inspired by noir movies, pulp fiction and the fierce crime comic books of the 40’s. The show features our unique multi-media, old radio show-style performances of vintage comics plus projected art, live jazz/cabaret music, and other thrilling acts.

We will be showcasing live performances of stories pulled from classic, mid-century crime comic books presented in our signature variety show/ old radio show style. These aren’t heart-warming tales – these are the bloody comic book crime stories that were burned in the 40’s and banned in the 50’s for being too hard-boiled, too violent and too much!

Plus, we have recently been given permission to premier a comic story by legendary 1950’s comic book publisher EC for this show! They were the gold standard of comics in the Golden Age. Do miss it!

A SHOW, COMIC BOOKS and COCKTAILS!

The legendary Famous Monsters of Filmland teams up with Captured Aural Phantasy Theater to present the HI-FI SCI-FI INVASION at the historic El Cid for 1 night only Sunday, December 7! This show takes on stories and comic books inspired by classic, mid-century science fiction! It's a B-Movie Drive-In come to life!

The evening includes vintage sci-fi comic books brought to life on stage with original art, live sound effects and a live soundtrack. Classic tales by greats like Ray Bradbury are given an absurdist treatment for the 21st Century. Along with the multi-media sci-fi stories and comic book performances, the evening includes comedic acts, prizes and the finest live music.

HI-FI SCI-FI INVASION is especially important given that the founder of Famous Monsters, Forrest J Ackerman, coined the term "sci-fi!" Spend the evening with Captured Aural Phantasy Theater for an out-of-this-world geek-fest!

The HI-FI SCI-FI INVASION continues our new season and is the next installment in our monthly residency at El Cid. We always start the show at 8:30pm, but doors open at 7:30 so audiences can begin with El Cid's brand new tapas menu and superb cocktails. Enjoy a variety show, music and booze!
