If you're tickled by the notion of a world where the true classics of cinema include Plan 9 From Outer Space and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians ... well, maybe you already know about Alternate Histories.
Artist Matthew Buchholz ran a successful Kickstarter campaign for his new Classics of Filmdom series, and tonight he's having a thank-you party at Wildcard, in Lawrenceville.
The Classics of Filmdom series creates pocket-sized designer scripts to "legendarily bad science-fiction movies" like the above (and Manos the Hands of Fate). Buchholz's Kickstarter had a goal of $5,000, and thanks to more than 200 donors raised $5,912.
At the party, donors can pick up their books, plus limited-edition prints. Non-donors can buy the books — the first time they'll be available to the public. And Buchholz promises free beer and snacks for everyone, plus "a special selection of monster & sci-fi themed music").
The party runs from 6-8 p.m.
Wildcard is located at 4209 Butler St.
