REMAKE DOUBLE-TAKE returns to The Mahoning Drive-In Theater on Friday, May 5th as we present the original 1956 paranoia classic INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, followed by its equal-if-not-superior 1978 remake, both on 35mm!

First up, a small-town doctor notices an emotion-draining change creeping through his friends and neighbors, preceded by large plant pods tucked away nearby.  What could be causing this wave of forced conformity? Kevin McCarthy races to find answers and avoid falling asleep, with Dana Wynter and Carolyn Jones among a cast of familiar 50s faces, in this black and white Superscope classic from Don Siegel. 

Then, watch out!  They get you while you’re sleeping, in Philip Kaufman’s Me Decade reimagining of the pod people problem as Donald Sutherland, Brooke Adams, Jeff Goldblum and Leonard Nimoy discover a wave of unusual behavior in San Francisco. Is it self-improvement, self-involvement, self medicating, or….something else…?  A masterfully done film that’s permeated with dread and unease from its opening frames, one of the rare remakes that holds its own against the original.

JOIN US for this one-night-only invasion of two sci-fi/horror classics on the big screen, along with vintage trailers, themed food items, a podtastic raffle, and more!
