Planet X Cinema Halloween Double Feature

San Anto natives Blair and Drew Hicks have an enduring love for film, particularly the most misfit entries in the canon. They cut their teeth on the VHS culture of the ’90s, binging Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Joe Bob Briggs’ MonsterVision, and often combed the shelves of Blockbuster and local chain Pic-A-Video for oddities. As many of us do, the brothers carried a torch for their first love into adulthood, and soon found themselves fanning the flames. Blair started hosting B movie screenings in Austin in 2016, sometimes joined by Drew, who added San Antonio events the following year. Thus, Planet X Cinema was born. Planet X Cinema kicks off its new screening schedule this week at Künstler with a Halloween Double Feature Bash of The Blob and Invaders from Mars, two ’80s flicks that remade ’50s cult classics. The bros will team up to host, so expect them to point out notable trivia, show a few related clips and otherwise “feed off of each others’ garbage brains,” as Drew puts it, probably in costume.

Sinya on Lone Man Creek in Wimberley
“Absolutely perfect weekend getaway! We were worried that it might be too hot inside the tent, as both my husband and I love our room cold, but it was perfect around 70 degrees…especially in the summer. Bed was very comfortable and you could just sink in and sleep. I slept so deeply. It is a beautiful, serene place to stay and I could not recommend it more!” - Yelper Larissa I
