In honor of the 75th anniversary of Orson Welles and Mercury Theater’s infamous Halloween night prank radio adaptation of “War of the Worlds” the Clay Center’s Electric Sky Theater will present the 1938 broadcast of the H.G. Wells classic. Halloween night you can sit in the peaceful dark of The Electric Sky Theater and listen closely to a broadcast that was so realistic at the time that it caused genuine panic in some listeners.
Doors open at 10:30 for a pre-show star talk and an open discussion of science, science fiction, and the impact they can have when combined with mass media. War of the Worlds at the Clay Center’s Electric Sky Theater happens Thursday October, 31 2013 from 10:45 PM to Midnight.Admission is $2.00
