National Amusements – that’s Showcase Cinemas to most of you – is bringing their wonderfully fun and hilarious "Attack Of The B Movies" series back for another season starting this Thursday.
"Attack" started in five Boston-area theaters last August and proved successful enough that the second series, which ran in October 2007, expanded to 20 theaters in eight states.
In addition to re-screening a number of the classic B flicks from the last two series, there will be a number of films that have not been screened yet, and it is sure to make a fun evening for all.
You get two classic B films for the low price of $5 per person. The series will run every Thursday at 7 PM in most locations through October 20, with a Halloween night spectacular – 4 movies – on Friday, October 31st.
Theaters in the Boston area that are a part of the screening series:
Showcase Cinemas Lowell
Showcase Cinemas Revere

We usually attend the shows at Showcase Cinema Revere, but will be skipping some this year as we saw them last year – however, if you’re there, look for someone wearing a "Subject:CINEMA" tee shirt and come say "Hi!"
