Something new has been added to the Marco Island Historical Society Summer Movie Matinee Series. Robert Messier, author of “100 Years of Thrillers and Chillers 1912-2012,” will be offering a short preview/critique of every movie we have on tap for this summer. Prior to each show, Messier will be giving interesting insights that will enhance the wonders of movie magic of old.
Mr. Messier’s book is considered to be an ultimate collection of all the best thrillers and chillers in cinema history. He studied drama and film making in Long Island, New York.
He now resides on the Isle of Capri and is a member of the Marco Island Writers Circle.
Showtimes for the remaining movies will be 1 pm with Little Shop of Horrors on August 6th, Cross Creek on August 13th, My Pal Trigger on August 20th, Meet John Doe on August 27th and bid farewell to summer with Topper Returns on September 10th.
