Retropath Presents: Spider Baby says
Maddest Pre-show Ever Made: 7:30 pm
Film: 8 pm

Calling all nostalgia-freaks and celluloid junkies! Are you looking for the latest cinematic thrill? Retropath has you covered: look no further than Jack Hill's delirious and sexy classic SPIDER BABY.

The film's original title being "Cannibal Orgy or, The Maddest Story Ever Told" certainly speaks volumes as to what audiences are getting into when they come through our Royal doors on March 21st. This film follows Lon Chaney Jr. as sympathetic as ever, playing a chauffeur names Bruno who looks after three orphaned siblings Elizabeth, Virginia and Ralph Merrye, in a mansion in the middle of no where. The orphans all suffer from "Merrye Syndrome", which causes them to regress mentally and emotionally to that of early adolescence. Although Bruno just barely keeps the siblings out of trouble, things deteriorate to absolute mayhem when distant relatives visit the property, because they believe it is rightfully theirs.

This purely bizarre piece of film has to be seen to be believed, and what better way to see it than on The Royal's big screen? Come in and get wrapped up in the maddest story ever told, but let us warn you now: don't be fooled by the innocence of the Merrye orphans, because they have the savage hunger of black widows!
