Wednesday, Nov. 26's Lowdown

You should be helping mom set the table, anyway.

As we noted here yesterday, Humboldt’s out-and-about scene is pretty quiet this week. Thankfully the Arcata Theatre Lounge ain’t closing up shop just yet and are faithfully presenting their weekly Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night as though there werent turkeys in the oven. Does Isle of the Snake People (1968) somehow tie into Thanksgiving? Seems unlikely, but judge for yourself in the trailer below.
