Morning After Talk-Back: Matinee--CANCELLED

  • 09/18/2021
  • 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Gulfport History Museum (5301 28th Avenue South)


Following up on our September Florida Summer Cinema screening of Matinee, Gulfport Historical Society offers a brunch that will stimulate your tastebuds and your brain!

Amanda Hagood, Instructor in Animal Studies at Eckerd College, will speak about Matinee and the making of Cold War era science fiction films. She will discuss the often ingenious techniques B-movie filmmakers used to create a wildly creepy-crawly experience for their viewers and explore the connections between bug-fueled fears at the movies and the geopolitical anxieties of the Cold War. There will be plenty of hilarious--um, I mean terrifying!--examples to share. 

As we listen and discuss, we will enjoy a brunch prepared by Gulfport's own Chef Morgan Banno. Mimosas and Bloody Marys will accompany delicious brunch fare.

This event helps raise funds to provide more great programming from Gulfport Historical Society. Tickets $15 for members; $20, not-yet-members. Doors open at 10 AM. Registration is required so we can plan appropriately.

Amanda Hagood teaches and writes about all the weird, woeful, and wonderful things we think about when we think about "the environment"--especially when that environment is in Florida! Her work has appeared in Interdisciplinary Studies in Literature and the Environment, The Journal of Florida Studies, Creative Loafing Tampa, Bay Soundings, and -- most distinguished of all -- The Gulfport Gabber.
