Description: What better way to enjoy Halloween in Los Angeles than by watching a good old-fashioned scary movie? Fortunately for you, the American Cinematheque presents a digital 3-D screening of THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON  - the last of the classic movie monsters from Universal Studios Hollywood.

Ichthyologist Dr. David Reed (Richard Carlson) leads a team of scientists on an expedition up the Amazon River to hunt for fossils linking prehistoric land and sea mammals. But the murky waters of the region's Black Lagoon hide more than old bones; an amphibious gill-man rises from the depths to attack the researchers. Like King Kong, the creature is captured, escapes and sets his sights on a beautiful woman - Dr. Reed's girlfriend, Kay (Julia Adams). 1954, Universal, 79 min. Dir. Jack Arnold.

Date: 2012-Halloween Night at 7:30pm
