5PM MOVIE: LAURA (1944). One of Vincent Price's favorite films he was in. Detective Mark McPherson investigates the killing of Laura, found dead on her apartment floor before the movie starts. McPherson builds a mental picture of the dead girl from the suspects whom he interviews. He is helped by the striking painting of the late lamented Laura hanging on her apartment wall. But who would have wanted to kill a girl with whom every man she met seemed to fall in love? To make matters worse, McPherson finds himself falling under her spell too. Then one night, halfway through his investigations, something seriously bizarre happens to make him re-think the whole case. Written by Steve Hosgood
7PM MOVIE: HOUSE OF WAX (1953). The film that catapulted Vincent Price into a full-fledged horror star. Price is a sculptor that is left for dead in his burning wax museum. Hideously scarred and insane, he returns with a new type of sculpting...heh, heh.
9PM QUESTION & ANSWER TALK: Victoria Price and you! Ron Adams moderates the session with questions on Vincent from the audience. Victoria can relay the behind-the-movies view of "Dad." A look at the man that was an actor, art promoter and wonderful father.
10PM MOVIE: THE FLY (1958). The sci-fi/horror classic with Vincent Price. A case of teleportation gone very, very bad. It's gonna take more than a can of Raid to take care of this beast!
12 MIDNIGHT MOVIE: HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (1958). Vincent Price as a millionaire who has a "Haunted House Party!" He invites people he doesn't know to spend a night in a haunted house. He awards a cash prize for anyone who can make it through. Elisha Cook Jr. as a nervous wreck is wonderful. One of director William Castle's absolute best!

2PM MOVIE: HOUSE OF USHER (1960). Roger Corman's first in a series of wonderful Edgar Allan Poe films. Atmospheric, creepy and brooding with Vincent Price, Mark Damon and Myrna Fahey. Price as the sensitive brother Roderick Usher (with shock white hair) is driven deep into madness and entombs his sister alive, for her own good, much to the dismay of her lover. Roger Corman escalated to new levels with this one.
4PM MOVIE: THE PIT & THE PENDULUM (1961). Vincent Price in his second Edgar Allen Poe film (the first was HOUSE OF USHER) and he's great. The movie is first class with Barbara Steele too!
6PM TALK & POWER POINT PRESENTATION: Vincent Price Celebrated by Victoria Price. History, background, family photos and memories, and most of all....inspiratonal. Victoria Price, Vincent's daughter, weaves the tales of a movie star, art collector, man and father into a joyous retrospective of life, love for fans like you and me.
7PM MOVIE: THE HAUNTED PALACE (1963). Vincent Price stars in this tale of unspeakable horrors from the pen of H.P. Lovecraft. The title comes from a Poe poem, but the story is "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" by Lovecraft. Ancient evil and possession in a spooky old castle. Price plays the decendant of a warlock and the townpeople are pretty darn uneasy about him moving into his ancestor's castle. The town is populated by strange mutants from the warlock's curse on the first go-round! Lon Chaney Jr. in one of his best later roles, plays Simon, the castle caretaker.
9PM MOVIE: THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES (1971). Stars Vincent Price, Joseph Cotten, Hugh Griffith, Terry-Thomas and Virginia North. A fiery car crash results in the death of a Doctor Phibes (Vincent Price) and severe injuries to his wife. The woman doesn't survive surgery. The BIG news, is the doctor isn't really dead, just disfigured, with a skull-like face -- and he's completely insane. He blames the operating doctors on the death of his wife. He goes about, systematically and creatively, killing them. Using the great plagues as a blueprint for murders, as he sets about his new life's work.
10:30PM FREE PRIZE TOSS! To wrap up another great Palace Theatre MONSTER BASH with Creepy Classics, it's the free prize toss. Right after THE ABOMINABLE DR.
