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!
